This coffee has been specifically selected for Stroud and the people of Stroud who support all the amazing local independent businesses of Stroud.
The colours are drawn from the Stroud coat of arms. The green is for the water that drew all the weavers to the area and the red represents the Stroud scarlet that Stroud became famous for and the red cloths which were left to dry on the hills, also red is Las Fresas; the name of the farm that this coffee from, named due to the wild strawberries growing nearby in this region.
This coffee is a stunner! Designed to be a single origin espresso, so goes perfectly as a part of a milky brew, but also tastes grand as a black coffee. Sustainably sourced from the Madan Estate in Jiwaka Province, Papua New Guinea. Did you know that Papua New Guinea was home to 7 million people and 800 different languages?
The Madan Estate is run by Highlands Arabicas Ltd and in 2022 Peter Pena a local PNG lawyer and businessman took over the estate and dedicated his time to producing higher quality coffee, as he grew up on a coffee farm and his father was a pioneering indigenous coffee planter.
When Peter took over, he championed environmental sustainability. He planted native shade trees which not only provide shade but also act to promote natural biodiversity in the farm. He abolished chemicals and adopted more natural methods of farming in order to help with soil diversity. This adjustment has had a positive impact on the surrounding ecosystem and there are not thriving wildlife within the farm; for example tree kangaroos (Kapuls).
What can I say …think we might have a close contender to the ‘Bloom’ brews!!! ….Great work Noni
We loved the new addition to Nonis coffee. It is a great expresso coffee with a strong a slightly bitter taste.. This my new favourite after Bloom!
