Originating Countries for current Artistry Coffee Beans

We have 2 new coffees just in, as well as some new roasts of coffees that we have stocked for a while.

The new Blanca Rosa Melgar is another Honduran coffee again contributing 50p from each bag to the Honduran Relief Fund – helping the areas hit by storms Eta and Iota in November 2020. The taste notes of these beans are for cherry liqueur, pomegrante and cacao – so something a little different perhaps! The coffee is sourced from a 6 hectare farm at 1250 meters in the mountainous Celaque area to the west of the country. Named after the farm owner, this coffee is farmed organically as Blanca and her husband Arturo refuse to apply chemicals to the land.

Our other new coffee is La Naranja from Peru. It originates from 3 small farms in the northern Andes region of Cajamarca, Peru – careful farming methods are used to encourage the quality and yield of the crops. This coffee is from c1800 meters and has taste notes of green apple, raisin, and clove.

At Artistry Coffee we offer multi-buy discounts when you purchase more than one bag, and we reduce the prices on older roasts too.

We have coffee beans – or ground coffee – available.

Currently there are single-origin coffees from Peru, Ecuador, Honduras, Colombia, Ethiopia, and Guatemala. As well as our regular Aylesbury Blend.

The story of the Redemption Roasters project underpins all our coffees.

Our Fiallos coffee from Honduras has the story of a man who gradually saved enough money to buy a small parcel of land to grow coffee, and has managed to add other parcels of land to eventually create a viable buisness. He now also advises and assists other coffee producers. With each bag of Fiallos coffee, 50p goes to the Honduran Relief fund helping with the aftermath of the Nov 2020 storms.

Another coffee is Altos De Saraguallas from Ecuador – which is produced by a collective of smallholders in the Loja region of Ecuador.  See if you detect the taste notes of Glace Cherries, Cantaloupe, Lemon Drops.

Our coffee pricing offers multi-buy discounts when you purchase more than one bag, and we discount older roasts. So if we have some spare bags from a previous roast you can choose to buy the most recent roast, or a previous roast at a discount.

We have coffee beans – or ground coffee bags – available.

We’ve upgraded!

Kenya coffee beans - Kimathi AB Kiambu

Our new supply of coffee beans is mainly coming from Redemption Roasters who specialise in high-end coffee roasting in small batches.

They’re an operation with an incredible story and mission and we’re delighted to be stocking beans roasted locally in Aylesbury in such a special project.

We’ve planned our own move to Aylesbury for a few years now, and we first came across Redemption Roasters at London Coffee Festival in 2017. We knew then that we’d love to work with them for a number of reasons.

The coffee beans Redemption roast is ethically sourced generally from small farms and Redemption have first-hand knowledge of the farms. There’s usually a story associated with each.

To have locally roasted beans was something that seemed special too, however the project that is behind the whole process is incredibly visionary and valuable.

Redemption Roasters are based at Aylesbury Prison – HM Young Offenders Institute. They are part of a project aimed at reducing re-offending rates. The vision is that by skilling up the young people with specialist vocational skills and real prospects for employment there can be  transformation in the lives of these young people. Redemption host a café inside the prison where competition level barista skills are learned. They also have a roastery under the guidance of a head roaster and assistant roaster. They take charge of the roasting process and gradually allow the young people more involvement as they prove their skills.

Redemption also do all they can to help place the young people in employment on release.

So with all of this, and the fact that the coffee tastes great to – we were very exited to confirm that we will be able to sell Aylesbury Roasted beans to our customers – whether in Aylesbury itself at Duck Farm Court, or online.
