Great Taste Awards 2019

30 August 2019

We did really well again this year and especially delighted with one of our coffees getting the top 3 Gold Stars.  Our Ethiopian Deri Kocha Guji was one of only six coffees in the country to get 3 stars! The judges comments below, say it all!

Lightly and evenly roasted beans with a fresh grassy aroma. This starts off with a pungent high acidity which then becomes sweet and fruity and mellows through to a rich caramel and nutty finish. We then added milk and the surprise continued - just as delicious with milk - less acidity but with the same fruity notes trailing again to the sweet caramel finish as described. A well-balanced coffee hitting all the right notes with a creamy length - really delicious.
Great little traditional beans. What a hit, rich, fruity and so well balanced and the flavours linger wonderfully. With milk this moved to a different dimension. Wow!

In addition we picked up 2 stars for our Ethiopian Dumerso along with single stars for seven of our other coffees: Will's Winter Blend, PNG Fire Dancer, Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Kochere, Ethiopian Hama Natural, Nicaraguan Maragogype, Colombian Sierra Nevada and Monsoon Estates Cold Brew. To see the full list head over to The Great Taste Awards 2019 and search for Monsoon Estates.

Great Taste Awards 2018

14 September 2018

As many of you know we did really well at the Great Taste Awards this year. You can see the listing on the Great Taste Awards web site by searching for Monsoon Estates.

Ethiopan Shalaitu           3 stars
Espresso decaf              2 stars
Monsoon Espresso            2 stars
Guatemalan Guayaba          2 stars
Ethiopian Sidamo Shakisso   2 stars
Ethiopian Hama              2 stars

Great Taste themselves say two stars is above and beyond delicious with less than 15% of entries making the grade. Three stars is extraordinarily tasty with less than 3% of products awarded 3-stars each year.

Some of these coffees like our Monsoon Espresso are firm favourites and generally available in the shop with the rest we're going to offer a different one each month so you get a chance to try them all. We're kicking off with Ethiopian Hama available in the shop now. It's a cooperative coffee from Kochore and high grown!
