This Coffee's Story

Introducing the coffee that started it all. Our faithful house blend may have undergone a name change and minor facelift in the last eight years but the components and delicious taste profile have essentially remained the same. Back in 2013 Leeds was somewhat of a stronghold for darker roasted commercial coffee and we were faced with the big ol’ task of introducing many traditional espresso drinkers to the World of Specialty Coffee… and so ‘The Docks’ was born! A blend which we felt successfully bridged the gap between old and new, embracing many of the characteristics of the traditional whilst embodying key principles of contemporary specialty production. Highlighting the work of amazing producers from across the tropics by profiling and roasting their beans to a medium level before blending them to create a characterful cup.

This blend supports many of our all-time hero producing partners here at North Star, featuring coffees from young innovator and trail blazer Marcelo Montanari (owner of Fazenda Rainha Da Paz in Brazil) and Maria Zoila Pineda, the focus of our very first Infrastructure Project at origin (and member of the legendary Chelazos cooperative in La Palma, El Salvador).

Components:

40% Brazil Fazenda Rainha Da Paz

A classic Brazilian coffee with low to medium acidity and intense notes of milk chocolate and roasted nuts. Full bodied and creamy in mouthfeel, this is a staple coffee from an amazing and relatively young farm in Patrocinio, Minas Gerais. The Montanari brothers (Roger and Marcelo) are paving their way in the area fast gaining a reputation for innovation and social and environmental responsibility.

40% El Salvador Chelazos

We are so proud of this coffee having sourced it during a trip to El Salvador in February 2017 from B Corp partners Caravela Coffee. Determined to work with small scale producers where possible, we chose the region of Chalatenango to source our coffee from and came across a group of incredibly determined and focused farmers defying the challenges of the area and remaining committed to the principles of quality coffee production. The result is juicy, clean, balanced and bursting with plum and marzipan.

20% Sumatra Bener Meriah

Sumatra is possibly one of the most challenging origins to work with when looking for quality, it’s unique processing method and infrastructure can result in coffees that display a real woody, earthy character. Bener Meriah is a washing station in Aceh (North Sumatra) that belongs to the Bener Meriah Farmers Group, compromising 400 farmers. We have worked with these smallholders for nearly four years now thanks to the clean coffee they produce – intense and full bodied this coffee has deep notes of dark chocolate, tamarind and plum.
