Our Favourite Coffee for the French Press

We love our French Press, it's great to make coffee for a group, or a single cup... and versatile enough to make wonderful cold brew in the summer.

Here are some of our favourite coffees to use with the French Press.

Coffee of the Month

Limmu Natural - Ethiopia

This Grade 3 Organic Ethiopian Limmu comes from the Burka Gudina Estate.

Produced by Ibrahim Hussein at Burka Gudina (which means “where the blessings grow”) Estate, one of the few larger specialty coffee farms in Ethiopia. This is a “natural” or dry-processed coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit, encouraging a flavor profile that is rounder and lower-toned than the more familiar wet-processed floral- and citrus-toned Ethiopia profile.

Ibrahim Hussein is the third generation owner of the Burka Gudina Estate. The estate uses 150 hectares of farmland for coffee production and employs 120 people during the peak season. Growing altitude at Burka Gudina ranges from 1850-2000 masl. Coffee is sun dried on raised beds for 14-28 days.
