Why Our Coffee is The Best?

 

Sourcing the Pick of the Crop

Established relationships with producers and the coffee farming community means we can consistently source the best Arabica and Robusta beans from over 40 origins across the Coffee Growing Belt. At Kingdom Coffee we always demand the pick of the crop. We buy Grade 1 or “Strictly High Grown” – SHG coffee beans. By selecting only coffee beans from the highest elevations we can be sure that the bean has matured more slowly, grown to a larger size and with more density to create a consistently great taste profile.

There’s no denying that coffee grown at higher elevations produces the best flavour profiles, which is then sorted and graded by the farmers with greater care and attention and therefore command a higher premium price which we are very happy to pay! We believe passionately that farmers should be rewarded fairly for their hard work and the quality of their crop.

 

Investing in the Purest and Cleanest Roast

ROASTING BETTER: We are unique in that we roast on a clean bed of air in small batches as opposed to conventional drum roasting - only 1% of coffee is roasted this way. Air roasting elevates the natural sweetness to give a smooth and pure taste. Unlike traditional roasting, the chaff, the skin of the bean, that surrounds the raw bean is removed during the air process whilst in normal roasting this is burnt onto the bean. This makes the resultant air roasted beans more pure as the beans will taste less burnt and acidic.

CONSISTENCY: Another benefit to Air Roasting is consistency - typical roasters rely upon roasting “to colour“ which returns a high degree of variance from batch to batch. The Air Roasters rely upon exact metrics such as temperature and time with specific profiles that have been developed by our Q Grader, a certified coffee professional, to suit the particular bean. An exact science rather than guess work.

 

 

Protecting the Environment

We all have to recognise and assess our individual impact upon the environment. Our new Air Roaster uses 30% less energy than a typical roaster and reduces wasted heat by recirculating it in a fully enclosed system. We have a catalytic converter to ensure that harmful gases released are reduced by around 96%. Committing further to minimise our impact on the planet we have moved our packaging to 100% curb-side recyclable. This new packaging still protects that fresh roasted taste.

 

OUR BEANS are amongst the freshest on the market, being roasted to stock in the UK as opposed to importing roasted beans on a much longer timescale. Our Neotech roaster is more environmentally friendly, energy efficient and better than conventional drum roasters in that it can roast in specific small batches with unique roasting profiles that are able to compensate product variations and unfold the unique flavour of each individual coffee blend whilst reducing wasted heat by recirculating in the fully enclosed system.

Our range of Ethical coffees support our partnership with Toybox, who we aim to donate £100,000 over a period of ten years, having donated £50,000 in the last 5 years. This enabled Toybox to provide the resources needed for the street outreach team throughout 2020, conducting 240 visits to children in the most high-risk areas in Guatemala City as well as deliver 100 children across the city a warm and nutritious meal each week. Your continued support of Kingdom Coffee means that we can fund vital projects like this so thank you very much!

WHAT IS FAIRTRADE?

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world

 

ASPROTIMANA – FT Colombia Arabica Coffee

ASPROTIMANA was formed in 2001 as an initiative of 32 producers who were interested in developing more stable marketing channels for its flagship product, coffee, to improve the social and economic position of the families in the area. The social objectives of the project were initially focussed on the coffee farming families but the medium- and long-term aim is for the benefits to extend more widely through the region as well. The cooperative is based in the district of Huila and includes 22 villages in the Timana, Elijah and Suaza areas. The cooperative’s name is derived from the Timanaes tribe that originally inhabited the region. Coffee is the main crop, grown on an area of approximately 250 hectares. The majority of the crop is Caturra coffee, but varieties such as Colombia and Castillo are also grown.

Today the association comprises 85 families of small coffee growers who are committed to improving their standard of living by producing and exporting high quality coffee.

 

KDCU - FT Tanzanian Robusta Coffee

KDCU (Karagwe District Cooperative Union) is an organisation of small-scale coffee growers located in the Karagwe District of northwest Tanzania.

The organisation is made up of 76 primary organisations, with a total of 20,000 individual members, of which 16,000 are men and 4,000 are women. KDCU is working to increase female participation and membership, this is an important step as it is the women who do much of the work on coffee farms in the region.

The KDCU head office is in Kayanga, the regional capital. KDCU started with 50 primary societies and covers an area of 7,716km2, most of the Karagwe District. The people in the area are mainly from the Wanyambo tribe but there are a small number of Wahaya, Wachiga, Wanyarwanda and Wahimba people. Their staple foods are banana, beans, yams and maize.

 

FT Brazil

COOCAFE (Cooperative of Coffee Region Lajinha) was founded in 1979 in the city of Lajinha in the state of Minas Gerais. The cooperatives have been certified Fairtrade since 2006.

 

It is located between the forest regions of Minas Gerais and the mountains of the Espírito Santo state. The climate is predominantly humid and the land sees a substantial amount of rainfall throughout the year. Partners of Coocafé receive technical assistance, purchase security contributions of coffee and other agricultural inputs over more than 20 locations where the project is developed, which produce more than 1 million bags per year.

Currently some 5,000 small and large scale farmers are members of Coocafe.

 

Our beans are amongst the freshest on the market, being roasted to stock in the UK as opposed to importing roasted beans on a much longer timescale. Our Neotech roaster is more environmentally friendly, energy-efficient and better than conventional drum roasters in that it can roast in specific small batches with unique roasting profiles that are able to compensate product variations and unfold the unique flavour of each individual coffee blend whilst reducing wasted heat by recirculating in the fully enclosed system.

All our Fairtrade beans have an independent third-party trail from cherry to cup and our roastery has a direct relationship with the farms alongside our Q graders. These all meet the Fairtrade Standards that ensure that farmers and workers are treated and paid fairly, as well as meeting Fairtrade’s environmental standards that ensure production is sustainable, living up to our slogan “Coffee with a Conscience”.
