On the 17th of May we had our launch party here at Assembly in Carlton. It was a great success, and was so lovely to have the support of all that came along. Apologies if we didn't get a chance to talk to everyone, there were moments when it was difficult to move! Hope all the tea, coffee and beer was enjoyed. Such a memorable night.
Tonight at Assembly we are cupping some amazing Colombian coffees sent to us from Russ at Reuben Hills. They were all beautiful and individual coffees. The Finca San Luis was incredibly fragrant, with lots of flowers, an sweet spices. It was also really complex and had a savoury herb aspect that we loved. The other Colombian, Finca la Montanita, had great passionfruit acidity, with some dark cocoa too.
We're so looking forward to working more with Reuben Hills. Upon receiving these samples, the team has asked us for feedback. It's nice to hear from roasters, that they are listening to different opinions. That attitude isn't one you come across quite enough.
