DC Coffee The DuchessDC Coffee
Product: Coffee Beans
A Sip with Mercato: I am woman, hear me roar… after my first cup of DC Coffee’s The Duchess! The aroma of dark chocolate and spice is in the air as you embody your powerful and strong woman of choice. Think Beyoncé. Think Xena Warrior Princess. Or why not gosh darn Cleopatra as you sip (not delicately, but with purpose and passion!) on this toffee, cherry and butterscotch flavoured coffee.
Producer: DC Coffee
Product Information: DC Coffee’s The Duchess features beans produced by an all female growers cooperative Renacimiento in Guatemala. Using beans from medium altitude Brazil and very high altitude Guatemala and Tanzania, this Australian produced product has medium acidity to balance the sweetness of the flavour profile and makes a truly unique and socially conscious cup of coffee.
Region: Guatemala, Brazil and Tanzania
Producer Information: Coffee roasters don’t need to be edgy, have creative design flair or be a downright celebration of individual expression – but it doesn’t hurt when they do!
The team at DC Coffee approach roasting a little left of field and don’t buy into the industry norms. At their core, DC Coffee believes in the connection between coffee and culture and the emotion and excitement which encompasses both. Using only fair trade beans, DC Coffee supports the empowerment of farmers and workers in developing countries to get a better deal through fairer prices, decent working conditions and favourable terms of trade.
Please note, this product is available as ground or whole coffee beans – so take your pick and enjoy the experience!
