  • Buy some of the worlds best coffee - and help a stroke victim.

    Every year Aida Batlle creates an extremely unusual and outstanding selection of the best peaberries from her three farms Kilimanjaro, Mauritania and Los Alpes. With a mix of Bourbon and Kenia grown across the farms, a peaberry selection processed in the washed method bodes for a exclusive profile of crisp fruits, sweet caramel and intense aromas. Square Mile Coffee Roasters have one bag of this coffee, which Aida gave to Gwilym Davies as a prize when he won the WBC in 2009.  Gwilym equally generously passed it on to SQM, as he doesn’t roast much from his cart on Whitecross Street! Instead of selling this remarkable coffee for a profit, Square Mile want to pass on the love theyve been shown and are giving all proceeds from the sale of this remarkable and delicious coffee towards the medical bills of our fellow friend Ricardo Espitia, the executive director of the Consejo in El Salvador (Coffee Council of El Salvador), who suffered a stroke in January last year.

    They first met Ricardo almost six years ago, and it was his tireless efforts to promote his country’s lovely coffees that set El Salvador up to become Square Miles favourite origin. They were thrilled to have him come visit us at the roastery the summer before he fell ill, as they had just taken delivery of our seasonal El Salvadors for him to taste!

    When Square Mile went to El Salvador for the Cup of Excellence last year it was good to see that Ricardo was doing better, but there is still a ways to go until they’ll (and well) have the pleasure of seeing him back at work, bringing coffees from El Salvador into the spotlight.

    Being clear about this – when Square Mile say they’ll donate all proceeds they mean that for every £20 you spend on a bag, they’ll send £20. They’ll cover the cost of roasting, bagging, credit card fees and all the rest. Postage to Australia is a very reasonable £5.21 (comes to about $46 for 350gm)

    They (and I) hope you will take this rare opportunity to not only try one of the most delightful coffees in the world, but to help us let the good will and grace continue to flow through the simple pleasure of a great cup of coffee.

    Ive bought a bag and hope youll follow me in helping someone whos worked tirelessly over the last 10 years to bring the quality and visibility of El Salvadors coffee to the forefront of the speciality coffee industry, and who through his work did his best to ensure the livelihoods of El Salvadors ~135,000 strong coffee farmers & employees.

    Sweet Marias and PTs Coffee in the United States both scored this coffee an incredible 93.

        Maybe some people are happy to quietly support this worthy cause without announcing that theyve done so??

              This arrived today 4 days post roast and I can truely say without the shadow of a doubt "best pour over" ever. Of course I havent had most of the ones readily available in places in Aussie like the Esmeraldas etc but from my limited experience and out of what I have tried so far this is a clear winner.
