THE STORY OF THE ONE
Never one to shy away from a new hobby, our head roaster Matt embarked on a journey to learn to roast in 2013. Never having heard of it, he was introduced to “home roasting” at his wife’s colourful family Christmas by an in law uncle. Who knew this innocent introduction would lead to years of experimentation and eventually the creation of Lord & Lady itself!
THE ONE was named as such, being THE ONE that started it all. Searching for a new favourite blend to call their own, Matt tested 10-15 different bean combinations. He eventually settled on this 60/40 blend of Tanzanian Peaberry and Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, pleasing his wife (and biggest coffee critic) with her own custom cup.
The Tanzanian Peaberry provides the foundational flavours for the blend, with the Yirgacheffe giving it the punch it needs.
MORE ABOUT THE BEANS
Nitin Estate where this bean originates is owned by the Suhdir family and is located in the Ngorongoro Area, about 120 miles from Arusha town. The farm borders on the game reserve and elephants are a frequent guest. This specialty coffee comes from the newer planting blocks that were planted five years ago.
The Tadesse Yirgacheffe Gr. 2 washed are a specialty coffee sourced from 1,100 small producers within the Oromia regional state. Small plots producing 300 to 700 kg of cherry each year are planted with traditional coffee varieties of Dega and Wulicho with native shade trees of Birbira, Grevillea and Kobo. Many of these plots are intercropped with cereals, beans and banana plants. It is very traditional, centuries old, low input farming with insignificant to no agrochemical and fertilizer. Only the fully developed red cherry is collected and delivered to collection stations, where it is sun dried on African beds.
