A true moment in history: the first coffee roasted by us Mugs. This is the product of many hours spent in our garden shed, chipping away at one coffee until we nailed down a roast that we're proud to share.
Why Version 14? Out of all our attempts, batch no. 14 hit the spot for us. We've taken this from a raw green bean right the way through to something we think tastes pretty remarkable. It's a cuppa dominated by funky tropical notes of green mango and citrus, with a sweet and smooth caramel finish. A coffee that smacks.
The bean itself comes from the El Diamante region of Peru. Not only is this a stunning setting, but the thriving natural environment contributes to the richness and stability of soils in the area. As a result, coffees from this region are very distinct, often boasting fruity notes and a pronounded tang.
We roast this beauty once a week and sell it the week after. This gives the flavours a chance to develop but it does mean weekly stock is limited. Grab it while it lasts.
