Perky Blenders have created this new sow blend, and it's quite something! It's a blend with a lot of body, a creamy texture, and warm flavours - think brown spices and dark sugar.
This is perfect for someone who loves a strong European style coffee - its great as an espresso and with milk. Flat whites with this blend are a favourite at the roastery, and its proving hugely popular.
The Brazilian coffee component of the blend is produced by Fazenda Caxambu. The farm is owned by the Chaves de Brito, a family that has been producing coffee in the Sul de Minas region for over a century. This specific lot is 100% Arara, a hybrid variety that has been making making a name for itself in Brazil in recent years for it's good productivity, resistance and remarkable sensory characteristics. Naturally processed, this coffee provides a lot of toffee sweetness to the blend.
The second coffee in the blend, Luoka, is from Papua New Guinea. It takes its name form the two districts in which the coffee is grown, Lufa and Okapa. Both districts are know for being some of the remotest parts of the Eastern Highlands and are well know for the quality of their coffees. Over a hundred small scale farmers are contributing to this lot, with a farm size average of just two hectares. After harvesting, the cherries are typically pulped, washed and dried at the farm and then sold to Mr Peno Kavori, a local entrepreneur who's collecting the coffees (paying premium prices for high quality coffees) and prepare them for export at his dry mill. This coffee is bringing spicy, herbal and nutty characteristics to the blend.
