I am so excited to be working with Noni and stocking her delicious sustainable coffees. She is an amazing one woman coffee roaster with her own roastery not far from me in Stroud. I have wanted to sell coffee for ages as I’m a big coffee lover, but I wanted it to be the right coffee. And when I discovered Noni, I knew she was perfect. Her beautiful packaging, her company ethos – to produce delicious tasting coffee without compromising the environment that produces it – and even the coffee names. Locally roasted Bloom coffee drunk in a handcrafted wildflower mug just makes sense.
This is the 4th version of her Bloom blend and it’s another deliciously smooth blend with notes of milk chocolate, blackberry and almonds – perfect for autumn and winter. She created this blend to be a balanced cup flavour of chocolate and nuts. A perfect espresso drink or a fantastic accompaniment to a cafetiere or stove top brew.
Sixty percent of this blend is grown in Areado in a region called Minas in Brazil. It is a Bourbon varietal grown at 900-1200 MASL by the Vieira family on the Monte Alegre Farm and is a natural process. The farm was converted from a sugar cane to a coffee farm about 30 years ago. The focus for the farm was to produce specialty coffee and ensure environmental conservation. On the farm there are cattle alongside crops of corn and sugarcane. The family spend lots of attention on the protection of surrounding ecosystems, recycling water, sustainable energy usage and reforestation projects.
Noni’s mission is “to ensure that you know who has grown your coffee, to develop long term relationships with small farmers worldwide to help them to grow, to use her profits for research to contribute to a more sustainable industry. And for every cup of Noni’s coffee drunk, to be as satisfying in flavour as it is for every person in the supply chain through which it got there.” I hope you love these coffees as much as I do!
