Freak & Unique
Lock up your inhibitions and throw away the key. It's time to get weird.
Freak & Unique is our curated curiosity collection of the most off-the-wall coffees we can find.
Our selection is all about highlighting the outstanding and the abnormal. Each coffee is a sensory journey to be savoured and remembered.
All coffees in our Freak & Unique series are available with a limited edition artwork, with purchases from this range helping fund our non-profit Art & Industry work, fuelling independent artists and creatives.
To keep you on your toes, we're releasing our next two Freak & Unique instalments in one go. Both brews have been infused during the fermentation process to deliver a strong flavour punch.
These two exceptional lots have been produced using a combination of anaerobic fermentation and honey processing. The coffee cherries are placed in fermentation tanks where CO2, wine yeast and fresh oranges or strawberries are added. After 72 hours of fermenting, the cherries are then de-pulped without washing and put on drying beds until they reach the ideal humidity level.
LIMITED EDITION ARTWORK
Illustrator extraordinaire, EmGal, has produced a super limited run of risograph prints to partner these new coffees.
