From Quaffee roasting experiences to Origin Coffee Roasting latte art courses, we have a lot of fun coffee events for you to take part in!
As some of you already know, I've been asking followers for scene suggestions for this series of illustrations based on a character I created. Her name is Storm. My brother semi-jokingly said: "How about a Storm brewing?".
I thought it was a great idea as I work part time for an amazing micro coffee roastery Quaffee
Today is the PERFECT day to reveal this illustration and spill the beans as it is the birthday of a very special person: my boss!
Happy Birthday Warren!!
Roasting! You can only learn so much from a textbook, thatโ€™s why we also like visiting roasteries where our students can see what the back-end of coffee making looks like. We had the opportunity to visit one of the best in the country: Sino from Quaffee at the Vineyard Hotel placed second in the Shot in the Dark roasting competition recently. Not only is he a great roaster, but also eager to share his knowledge and is patient with inquisitive students.

This is what the students had to say:
โ€œOur trip to Vineyard Hotel was quite an experience! We had a tutorial on the coffee roasting machine, then learned about the effects of roasting and of the different roast degrees: light, medium and dark. Then after roasting we tasted the coffee through a pour over.โ€
Thanks Sino and Quaffee!
To get the low down on the roasting process that won Sino his second place read this article on Quaffeeโ€™s website:
Remember to this week... It's , so let's celebrate South African coffee culture!

Quaffee's coffee pedigree goes back to the '90s, with its owner having been on a quest for the finest quality coffee for over two decades. This relentless pursuit gave birth to the Quaffee roastery - the ultimate expression of a life-long love of coffee and the best possible way to share this passion.

Every ounce of the small team's energy goes into sourcing & perfectly roasting some of the finest (and often lesser-known) coffee beans the world has to offer. These guys know how to source "the special ones".


โ—๏ธThis is why we LOVE coffee so much!โ—๏ธ

Here we have two coffees. Both of them started off as the same green bean. The same origin, the same farmers, the same washing station, the same producer, the same coffee variety. When they landed in South Africa, they went to two different roasters, and the results are outstandingly different!

From Quaffee we have a lovely crisp granny smith apple acidity complimented by a surprisingly nutty finish! Very unique for a Kenyan!

From Legado Coffee Roasters we have an incredibly sweet cup with more muted acidity (but just enough to bring balance to the sweetness), with some hints of apricot and berries on the finish!

Same coffee, yet so different!
With this weekend being dedicated to women, we really wanted to try and spread the focus over as much of the industry as we possibly could, and so we want to talk about Red De Mujeres.

This is a coffee that we currently have from Legado (we have had it from Quaffee in the past as well.) and we thought this weekend was the perfect time to share its story!

The Red de Mujeres, or โ€˜network of womenโ€™, is a large group of female coffee producers covering five different areas of Huehuetenango. The group is made up of 830 women and 8 different Mayan languages spoken, this group really highlights the diversity of culture and language in this area of Guatemala.

All of these women have been either widowed during the 36 years of civil war in Guatemala, or were left when their husbands fled the country during the coffee crisis between 2001 and 2004. Since Huehuetenango was one of the areas hardest hit by the crisis, many people decided to give up altogether and find work elsewhere, leaving their families behind.

With the help of ACODIHUE, these female producers have been united to market their coffee and find international buyers. ACODIHUE has also supported them in training in organic farming methods, from producing and applying fertilizers, to rust and pest control methods. Falcon has started working with ACODIHUE to improve the quality of production even further, starting with Red de Mujeres.

Yes... There is more because not one but TWO of the roasteries we work with, placed in the top three at the Shot in the Dark coffee roasting competition (hosted by The Coffee Magazine

Congrats to Quaffee for placing 2nd! What a great coffee roaster to have on board at CCB! The sheer quantity of absolutely incredible coffees that Quaffee manages to deliver is a feat in itself! Quaffee is yet another example of a South African coffee company pushing the bar and putting the South African coffee industry on the world coffee map!

We can't wait to see what comes next from Quaffee (fortunately, we never have to wait too long!)
