James & Anette of Square Mile Coffee Roasters have very graciously offered to be the coffee sponsors for the event. They have decided their delicious Yirgacheffe, which has the most potential for a range of flavours and aromas directly related to brew method, will be the competition coffee.
“It is a great examplar of the very best of the washed coffee from the Yirgacheffe region. Incredibly aromatic, full of floral notes and bergamot, and in the cup sweet limes and honey, a soft cardamom note with a light, tea-like mouthfeel.”
Some more information on the coffee can be found here. Competitors can expect their coffee to arrive in the coming weeks. If you are a lucky competitor you will be listed on the competitor list and you will receive an email stating so.
