This contemporary seasonal espresso blend is all about showcasing the very best coffees from the most recent harvests taking place throughout the year. With frequently changing components, it aims to promote seasonal coffees that are chosen for their interesting and fresh flavours.
Version 19 is full of character with plenty of sweetness. The Rwandan component brings great complexity to the blend, resulting in delicious notes of creamy white chocolate, raspberry and nutty biscuit flavours in v milk. As an espresso, this blend is beautifully complex with notes of blackberry, cherry and orange peel. A coffee that can really be played around with in the brewing to pull out different characteristics, enjoy!
Czar Street is made up of the following components:
70% Rwanda Gitega Natural
The Gitega Hills are found in the Nyamagabe District close to Nyungwe Forest in the South of Rwanda. The washing station is owned by Bernard Uwitije who has lived in the area all of his life and has invested heavily in infrastructure designed to be more environmentally friendly with more responsible water use. The average altitude of land delivering cherry to this station is 1650 metres above sea level and that high altitude along with the volcanic soil of the area make Gitega an excellent location for high quality processing. Ripe cherries are delivered to the Gitega Hills station to be floated and sorted to remove any that are defective. Those that are selected are then dried for up to 30 days on raised African beds. During this time, they are regularly turned each hour to prevent mould formation and are carefully covered at night.
30% Brazil Fazenda Rainha da Paz
As the largest producer of coffee in the world, Brazil has long been known for its coffee though more commonly for its commercial grade lots and focus on volume production. This has been changing in recent years thanks to growers like Marcello, a member of the Montanari family and an agricultural engineer who is championing the specialty approach for their three farms in Minas Gerais. As in much of the country, harvesting on Rainha da Paz is mostly mechanical thanks to the flat lay of the land – where Marcello and his family differ is in their commitment to the environment and ecosystem surrounding their land. There are plans afoot to become a carbon neutral farm which would be a revolutionary prospect in Brazil – whilst the farm is relatively new, there is by no means a lack of experience or attention to detail whilst under the watchful management of Marcello and his brother Roger who are fourth generation coffee farmers and really working to push the boundaries of coffee production in their area. This lot is a Rubi varietal which derives from the Mundo Novo and Catuai varietals – it is known to be high yielding and resistant to disease with good sweetness and complexity in the cup. We have worked with this farm for 5 years now and look forward to new crop arrivals (from January onwards) each year.

Thanks in advance for your understanding, it is much appreciated in these challenging times!
Czar Street Seasonal Blend V.19
The Czar blend is one of my favourite coffees. It is fairly bold but not overpowering and has just the right level of shortness and acidity to make it a good all-arounder suitable for cappuccinos, but also espressos and simple long black coffees.
A really beautifully blended roast. We brewed ours as a drip method and it produced a full bodied sweet cup with honey and dark fruit notes. Fully recommend and will buy again. Also loving the new recyclable bags & we always appreciate the care with which you package your coffees! Keep it up guys you’re the best
Beautiful smooth coffee that’s full of flavour
Good coffee and good service
