Around the world with Bora: Indonesia

Your journey around the world with Bora takes you from Medellin, Colombia to Sumatra, Indonesia! Find out more about our selected coffee of the month from the description below. Indonesia is one of the largest coffee producers in the world, usually in the top five. Coffee growing was started during colonial times around 1696 as the region provided some excellent growing conditions. Coffee beans from Indonesia produce low acidity and high bodied profile. This coffee is grown near Lake Toba which is the largest volcanic lake in the world. Processed using Giling Basah, this coffee has a huge body and a spicy aroma with hints of tobacco. Our Indonesian coffee will be available to order online or buy at Bora...

Cold Brew @ Home: The Bora Way

Experimenting with cold brew coffee is fun and we believe that each coffee bean benefits from being brewed in slightly different ways. For our cold brew @ Bora HQ, we use our popular Rwandan Missouzi coffee, and we've adapted the process and recipe to make it simple for you to follow and try for yourself at home!

Coffeeland: A History

Now I'm not a Daily M*il reader, I must start by saying this! But my uncle sent me over this article the other day and it's worth sharing. Disregarding the sensationalised headline, the book that the article is advertising Coffeeland: A History By Augustine Sedgewick  sounds by all accounts to be an exciting and interesting read by anyone interested in coffee and its' origins. Although we work predominantly with coffees from the African continent, Sedgewick's book focuses on coffee from El Salvador and Central and Southern America. If 350 dense pages of the history of coffee isn't for you, then you can wait until I've read it and i'll let you know the highlights in a blog post next month!...
