Description

Wildly Organic Blend of our organic and wildly grown specialty grade arabica coffees.

Blends

The philosophy of blending coffee is something that is considered to be an expectation rather than an unusual.

Traditional blending was based on origin and trying to make a coffee more accessible rather than concentrating on each regions unique flavour and aromatic profiles. Blends are seldom from a single origin or country, rather they combine commonly accepted tastes and aromas per region to complement or diminish strong or over powering characteristics in favour of a smoothed taste and aroma.

Progress of blends

Initial blends where made from coffee regions. The most famous blend being Mocha Java, which was originally a blend of coffees from the port of Mocha and the port of Java, this has since changed and most Mocha Javas do not contain either now.

As regions became less famous, people started naming blends themselves, using things like different roasts colours to determine a name, like Wiener Mischung. Which was original a combination of a medium and dark roast, this is also not the case now, since it is now taken to mean German or European style coffee.

Later blends started being named after when they were drunk. For example breakfast blend (South Africans drink 50% of all the coffee consumed in a day before 11 o’clock, so this name is popular here) and also naming blends after the brewing process the roaster thought they best suited, like espresso blend.

A high quality coffee blends has at least three, and sometimes 4 coffees. The highly commercial grades have from 9 to over 16 coffees to ensure that the risk of a dominant flavour is reduced, allowing for a year by year uniformity.

Wildly Organic Blend

Arabica is a large group of between 100 and 200 cultivars, depending on what literature you read. The higher quality Arabicas prefer to be grown in the shade, in the tropics and at altitudes above at least 1200m. The higher grown coffees are harder and have less moisture content, ensuring the flavours and aromas are more intense.

Wildly Organic is a blend of these quality Arabicas. The only place in the world that Arabica really goes wild, rather than say having been spawned from coffee plantation and then growing wild, is in the Western part of the Ethiopia called Limu. The farmers in Limu have small acre holdings that lead into the Limu forest. Coffees from this region are between 70 and 30% wild, depending on the season and the year. This has always been an important base of the blend Wildly Organic. The Limu adds spice and mocha to the blend.

Added to that is a very high quality Arabica that is organically grown and certified coffee. The coffee we are referring to is Asorganica from the Southern highlands of Colombia in the department (province) of Cauca. This coffee has a pronounced body with citric, floral and chocolate notes.

Our final addition to the Wildly Organic is at least one more certified organic coffees, which varies dependant on availability and taste. The third (and sometimes fourth) coffee is the mediator between the wild spicy aromas of Limu and the strong deep flavours of the Asorganica. This coffee only makes up around 30% of the total blend but is an important ingredient to a blend that lovers of the organic movement can relish, knowing that is not only wild and organic, but contains strong direct trade links.

The coffee is designed to be very drinkable and plays well with milk.
