DAILY BREAD [Spring 2021 Blend]

£6.30

A great cup of coffee should be as available as a pint of milk, or one's Daily Bread

A medium roast retains these great beans' characteristics whilst generating sweetness and a warm full body.

Daily Bread is a favourite amongst Pilgrims staff and often is consumed in borderline excessive quantities!

To bring you Daily Bread, we teamed up with small scale importers and have worked closely with farmers in Brazil, Colombia, and Uganda.  We're very proud to offer this unique house blend which has oodles of body and chocolate with an extra fruity dimension.

Fazenda Pantano is located in the Cerrado close to the city of Patos de Minas at an altitude of 1,150 meters and covers a total area of 550 hectares. More than 300 hectares of the land are allocated for permanent natural forest reserves, which is six times more than the legal requirement under Brazilian law. The farm has over 200 varietals, most of which are in experimental production, and is working closely with the Brazilian Coffee Research Institute to experiment with processing and flavour.

Fazenda Pantano has received an award from Brazil’s most prestigious agricultural magazine “Globo Rural”. The magazine recently announced 4 national awards for Sustainable Practices in 4 categories; Meat Production, Perennial Crops, Annual Crops, and Forestry. There were 189 finalists in the Perennial group which mostly consisted of orange growers. All of these 189 farms had to be audited with only 30 farms going into the final phase, and Brazil Fazenda Pantano came out on top! The auditors were assessing three main categories on each farm: food safety, environment, and social factors. The farm supports a local school and also funds various training schemes and courses for its staff. It is certified by the Rainforest Alliance.

Our Colombian is sourced from the fine folks over at the green collection. John and Claudia work closely with the farmers on the ground in Colombia to bring us this excellent coffee. This is a blend selected from Pachamama Farms in the region of Montalvo through to Bilbao. Each farmer has from 5 to 6 hectares with Altitudes ranging from 1600 to 2000 m.a.s.l. A wide range of varieties are grown including Caturra, Typica, Colombia F8, Castillo. The community development program centralised around the various producers aims to develop a stable environment through traceability and sustainably grown coffee with an emphasis on social welfare.

The Coffee Gardens was established in 2017 with the goal of producing incredible specialty coffee in an ethical way, offering a transparent and direct link between coffee farmers and coffee consumers. 

Located in the Mount Elgon region in Eastern Uganda, 
The Coffee Gardens Project has been established with many purposes such as improve farmer's income and livelihoods, create and provide rural employment, promote gender equality, increase transparency and traceability throughout the supply chain, and environmental protection in the area.

The coffee in this micro-lot is produced by the farmers on the mountain above The Coffee Gardens’ washing station. The farmers bring the coffee cherries down to our processing station, earning extra income. The contributing farmers have received weekly training by The Coffee Gardens’ agronomists on improved agriculture.
Thanks to 71 farmers, including 9 women, this lot has been created with each farmer providing an average of 600 KGs of red cherry.
