Mixing your orders
With Arabica Beans, you can order the same coffee bean or choose to have a different one each month. If your customers love it that much, then why change to a different one? We understand, and we’re perfectly happy to make sure they get their very favourite blend of coffee each month, just when you need it. On the other hand, perhaps your customers have adventurous taste buds and like to mix things up a little. If that’s the case, then we can make sure that as a trade member, you’ll be able to order a different coffee bean each month. With no difference in price or discount with either service, what’s not to lose!

South American coffee
Of all the coffees, South American coffees are the most well-known throughout the world and the most famous. Two countries out of this region are the world’s largest coffee producers with Brazil providing a third (25%) of the worlds coffee and Colombia not far behind, with one third (12%) of the world’s coffee.
Costa Rica, Peru
Costa Rica brings with it a simple flavour, heavy body, and creamy consistency with higher acidity, and thus higher notes. Peruvian coffee also has a simple flavour and complexity with high acidity and more citrus and tartiness to it. Peruvian coffee’s highest grade is AAA and is renowned for its high quality organic coffee. Its farmers are educated on the most sophisticated growing techniques, with the aid of an altitude that benefits natural growing conditions. Peruvian coffee is sometimes used to blend with other coffee beans because of its mellow character. Its main growing areas are Chanchamayo Valley and Cuzco.
Columbian coffee produces a third of the world’s coffee and has a heavy body and simple flavour with a creamy consistency and a higher acidity content to its neighbour Brazil, with higher notes and floral aroma. It’s rich in flavour and although it has a higher acidity it’s well balanced. The main growing areas area Huila, Popayan, Narino and Santander. The highest quality label coffee is known as Supremo. Columbian coffee benefits from superior marketing skills, making it the most recognised brand in the world.
Speciality Arabica coffee beans are pretty special, and produce the most impeccable coffee due to the ideal conditions in which they grow. Sumptuous soil conditions combined with high altitudes are the key ingredients for growing and cultivating the best coffee – and Africa has them both in spades.
As in Asia and Latin America there are different coffees in different countries where the taste varies, however they do all share common traits – African countries usually produce a washed Arabica coffee which is usually balanced, bright, with citrusy, winy berry and floral notes.
We will focus on three African countries, namely Kenya, Ethiopia and Tanzania.
Kenyan coffee is grown high up at an altitude of around 4 to 7,000 ft. they have a gorgeous acidity and produce a bright berry and citrusy cup of coffee. There are plenty of sophisticated highly graded coffees from this country with AA and AA Plus which are washed and then dried in the sun. Harvesting season is from November through to the end of January in early winter.
In Ethiopia there are three major growing regions, and they are Sidamo, Yirgacheffe and Harrar. They are all in the highlands of Ethiopia and up in altitudes of between 4 and 7, 000 ft. similar to Kenya. Between the 3 coffees, only Harrar is dry-processed, and the coffee in turn is recognised by its big body, complimented by a really good, sharp fruit finish. Yirgacheffe and Sidamo are both wet-processed coffees giving a berry and floral finish to the drink, although this can depend on the crop that year.
