    About the coffee

    This is because only the ripe coffee cherries have a developed flavor profile. While the cherries that are not ripe often cannot be sold as Specialty Coffee. After the beans have been mechanically separated from the pulp, they are washed and fermented. The washed method provides a particularly clean cup profile and complex flavor notes. After the fermentation process, the green green coffee beans dry under the blazing sun for several more days before being made ready for further transport in large jute bags. We roasted this Simbi Washing Station bourbon lot for filters. In the cup you taste juicy acidity of rhubarb, sweet red plum and Ceylon tea.

    Bloody Good Coffee

    - SINCE 2002

    Bloody Good Filter

    Coffee is a fruit which is naturally acidic and contains many sugars. We roast our filter coffees to bring out this acidity and develop the natural sweetness.

    In developing a profile for a filter roast, our roasting team takes a light-handed approach, roasting much more gently than in an espresso roast. Here, the aim is to respect and highlight the natural flavours of the coffee itself, and to let its terroir shine through.
