Bomber - Original Blend

ORANGE  |  CARAMEL  |  CACAO NIB

Bomber. The original. The one and only. If you've visited one of our customers across NZ, you'll most likely have tasted our firstborn. It all started back in 2009, when we sat around a campfire and talked about what we'd love to see in our dream blend, out there representing us in the cafes and on the streets. Big sweetness, sparkling acidity, and creamy texture were all agreed upon. And of course, a blend that black and white coffee drinkers could happily and equally appreciate.
Featuring coffees from Rwanda, Colombia, and Timor-Leste.

Colombia

Producer:
ASOCAFETATAMA Santuario, Asotatama El Aguila, Entreverdes
Region:

MASL:

Variety:
Caturra, Castillo, Colombia
Process:
Washed

The Risaralda Regional Blend is a combination coffee from the regions of Santuario, El Aguila, and Belén de Umbría, all located in the Risaralda Department. A regional blend means can maximise the effectiveness of our purchasing by purchasing much larger volumes of into New Zealand and with careful demand planning, we contract our coffee in advance of the season providing a guarantee to market for coffee producers. The blend is brought together in Santuario by the wonderful people of ASOCAFETATAMA (Coffee Association of Tatama), where the coffee from each region is blended and prepared for milling. A first payment is received at this point by producers, followed by a second payment on export. Each producer receives an above market price for their coffee at the time it is sold to us, this price is set above the C market price and is higher than other premium based models. In 2019, producers received an average household income of at least 5x greater than what the C market price provided at the time.

Rwanda

Producer:
Muraho Trading Company
Region:
Nyamasheke, Rugali Washing Station
MASL:
1800
Variety:
Red Bourbon
Process:
Washed
Rugali Coffee Washing Station is built next to the village of Rwamiko and purchases coffee from about 140 families in the area. Once cherry is delivered to the station is it hand sorted, floated, pulped and then fermented for 12 hours. Wet parchment is then run through a serpentine where a moving channel of water allows any floaters and foreign objects to float and be discarded. Once the coffee is separated, it is then washed in one final rinse and placed out on pre-drying sorting tables. It’s at this point where hand sorters remove any defects including identifying potential potato defects. Coffee is then laid out to dry on terraced raised beds for an average of 21 days. The beds stretch across a large open plain where coffee has maximum exposure to good air flow and sunlight which helps provide a consistent drying environment. During the dry season day time temperatures reach 28 to 30 degrees and evening temperatures drop to 12 to 15 degrees.

Timor

Region:
Ermera
MASL: 
1700-1800
Variety:
Hibrido de Timor, Typica
Processing:
Washed

Having found its sovereignty in 2002, Timor-Leste is one of the world’s youngest countries. As the country finds stability, the development of the agriculture sector is rapidly becoming an important pillar for the structural transformation of the country’s economy. Timor-Leste currently faces enormous economic upheaval, as its oil reserves begin to run dry. In its place, coffee is set to become that nation’s most vital export. In Timor-Leste, our work is currently focussed namely in the municipality of Ermera. One of thirteen municipalities in the country, it is home to the largest coffee production volumes, whilst almost 60% of the municipality's population live below the poverty line. We are excited to present you coffees from the Atsabe Washing Station. This community washing station is the first of its kind in Ermera and supports the surrounding suco’s (villages) in the Atsabe region. Throughout the season cherry is collected daily, either from buying points located throughout the region or delivered directly to the station and processed at the facility.
