For the first time in NZ we have a Super Natural process coffee from Serra Negra Farm we visited in the coffee heaven Minas Gerais region of Brazil. We were real lucky to get our hands on one of only 6 sacks produced globally. Coffee cherries were dried for a longer period at lower temperatures which has produced a very nice sweet Brazil. Come get some in store or choose specialty coffee of the week in our online store :)

A day by day encounter on what it's like to travel through Ethiopia on an amazing and interesting origin trip with Trabocca.
After getting up at 6am to meet Menno, the owner of Trabocca, the camera man and another customer at the airport at 730am, we travelled from Amsterdam to Nairobi, then to Addis Ababa. I must admit I was a little nervous for the trip and for the coming journey......
