Perky Blenders are from Walthamstow so meet their hero coffee: Forest Blend – named after their London’s borough, Waltham Forest.
To make this signature specialty brew, they seasonally source top grade beans and roast them with a little Walthamstow love, to create a coffee that works any way, with milk or without. Tasting notes, quality and consistency remain the same, meaning a cup of Forest Blend always tastes like a warm welcome home.
The Colombian coffee component of this blend was produced by 52 smallholder coffee producers from the region of Inzá, a municipality located in the corner of the Department of Cauca. The farmers are members of an organization called ASORCAFE (Asociación de Productores de Café del Oriente Caucano) that represents some 450 producers from across the Department. This specific lot, however, has been selected only from growers hailing from the neighbouring sub-municipalities of Pedregal and San Antonio for it's very high cup quality. This blend of Caturra, Castillo and Colombia varietals brings great sweetness and complexity as well as fruity and sugary flavours to the blend.
