We have just added some new crop Sumatran Gegarang and a washed Ethiopian to the Mojo webstore
We are always excited when we receive some new coffee at the Mojo roastery.
One of our new crop coffees is a coffee that we have stocked for the past few years, from the Gegarang Village Cooperative in Sumatra, Indonesia. There have been a number of improvements made at both the farm and processing stages by the Gegarang Village Cooperative and this is reflected in the fact that this coffee now has quadruple certifications of Rainforest Alliance, Fairtrade, Organic and UTZ.
In addition, we have a new offering from that home of great coffee, Ethiopia. This coffee is sourced from a cooperative, Qorema, that Technoserve, an NGO working to improve the lives of farmers, have been working closely with for the past couple of years. The results are clearly visible in the cup which has stone fruit sweetness and a nice lime acidity on the finish.
We were delighted that two Mojo coffees were included in a shortlist of The Best Coffees of 2014
Last year we submitted a selection of Mojo coffees for review by the well known U.S. coffee review blogger, Drew Moody who runs the Corner of the Cafe blog.
We were delighted that two Mojo coffees were included in Drews shortlist of 50 of the Best Coffees of 2014. These coffees included the Rwandan Karengera Cyivugiza which placed at 44 and the Kenyan Kagumoini which placed at 28. Drew reviewed around 175 different coffees in his blog in 2014 which included offerings from some of the best known roasters in the US and Europe, so it was a proud moment at Mojo when we had two of our coffees selected.
This achievement encourages us to strive for an even better placing in 2015 and maintain our focus on selecting and roasting the best coffees available.
