What is Single Plantation coffee?
Single plantation, sometimes also referred to as “single estate”, are coffee beans that have been sourced from one single plantation within a specific geographical area. Single plantation coffee allows the consumer to fully appreciate the flavour characteristics and cultivation process of a particular plantation.
Single Origin or Single Plantation? What’s the difference?
While single origin coffee usually means it is sourced from a single country, such as Ethiopia, Colombia or Guatemala. An “origin” can be as vast as India, or as small as Uganda, and the cultivating process may vary depending on where in the country the coffee has been sourced from. Single plantation digs deeper, and offers an understanding of quality and flavour based on the specific estate it is grown on.
Which Single Plantation Coffee should I try?
If you are after something fruity, we recommend the Ethiopian Bench Maji Wild Forest. It is an organic, medium roast coffee, offering a light and fruity cup.
The Ethiopian Guji Hambella is a nutty option. Palmyra grows in rich and volcanic soil, which contributes to the mild vanilla and subtle chocolate flavours.
