Black & White Roasters - The Classic (Web Exclusive)
Regular price £18.00
The Classic is an ode to everyday coffee and what makes coffee great. Black & White take on the simple relationship between balanced acidity and full bodied chocolate flavors. With a roast profile slightly darker than the other coffees we have from them that celebrates the love affair between coffee and milk. This profile is a year round offering that is always balanced with caramel, and chocolate undertones and a beautiful lingering finish.
The current Classic is a dual origin blend comprising of two washed coffees Pergamino, Cauca Regional Select and Santa Barbara - Multi Farm Blend Santa Barbra is Sam’s favourite coffee producing region and all the coffees from the region - especially those from the San Vicente Mill through coffee importer Benjamin Paz are exceptional! This one is built for milk with flavour notes of Caramel, milk chocolate and subtle hit of Stone fruit.
In 2017 when U.S. Barista Champions Kyle Ramage and Lem Butler formed Black & White Coffee Roasters. They Envisioned more than just being quality coffee roasters, they aimed to change the competitive landscape too , not by being “better” than the competition but by pushing the craft forward through collaboration. The Black & white coffee sourcing and roasting experience comes from over a decade of studying coffee processing first hand from coffee producers all over the world; understanding coffee consumers through years of experience working in cafes and working for a large coffee roasting company in wholesale management, volunteering, competing in coffee competitions all over the world.
It is this professional journey, and the community of relationships that they have built along the way that makes Black & White Coffee possible. Understanding that none of this would be possible without fostering great relationships, and continuing to pay that generosity forward is what shaped B&W’s core values: service, community and excellence. This is how they approach the mission statement of “Exceptional Coffee Kept Simple”, a very similar approach to our coffee style at Mows. B&W roast in a way to showcase each coffee’s unique quality, and to honor the extremely difficult work of cultivation at origin.
B&W aren't trying to change the way you think about coffee, rather they hope to change how you see yourself within the coffee value chain. Producer, Roaster, Barista or Consumer— we are all in this together. Coffee is steeped in a rich tradition of relationships, relationships are the fabric of community and community is key to an evolving coffee industry.
