The Aguilera brothers are third generation farmers who work at the mill and on the farms themselves to assure the highest quality beans. Most of their coffee is the Villa Sarchi variety, native to the area and excellent in the cup. Sourced directly from the micromill and paid for at farm-gate level. Grown at 1450masl
Taste Note: Dried figs and dates with a heavy sweetness and a bright fruit acidity.
We like: The medium-full body and the unmistakable sweetness up front. Experiment with a dash of milk.
Hand Roasted Coffee
All Matthew Algie coffee is ethically sourced and traceable, but what makes our hand-roasted coffees so exceptional is the direct sourcing of the most outstanding one-off microlots, often an entire crop, from individual farmers. Seasonality is a major factor in the selection process, with only the freshest green beans making the cut.
Then there's the hand roasting in the Italian 'Vittoria' traditional drum roaster - in batches of just 15-25kg. With decades of experience, we know how to develop the perfect flavour during the roasting process and how to preserve the integrity and freshness of the roasted beans right up until the moment the coffee is brewed.
The result? Each hand roasted microlot is unique, distinctive and memorable.
We change our hand-roasted offering regularly. Once a microlot is gone, it's gone. For more information on matthew Algie, or to stay updated with the latest microlots, please visit www.matthewalgie.com, where you can also join our mailing list.
