Brewing methods that work best for this coffee.

Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, or in the case of coffee, in your taste buds. There is no right or wrong in how you enjoy your coffee. And we promise we won't judge.

We love drinking the Morning Glory coffee blend as espresso (super juicy),  stovetop and AeroPress. Because we roast the coffee to a medium roast level, we also enjoy drinking the coffee blend as a plunger coffee.

Enjoy with or without milk.

About the recipe

We used the Victoria Arduino Eagle One Prima and the Mythos MYG75 grinder to create this recipe for you. Try to replicate this recipe on your equipment or create your very own.

The dose is the amount of ground coffee that goes into the filter basket of your portafilter. Filter baskets come in different sizes. The size of your portafilter determines how much coffee (fill weight) it can hold. You don’t want to overfill or underfill the basket, as it will compromise the extraction.

The yield is how much delicious coffee you extract or, in order words, ends up in your cup.

And because you may have a different basket size than ours, you want to use a yield based on your dose and the given extraction ratio.

The extraction time tells you if the water has enough time to extract all the tasty goodness in the coffee. Adjusting your grind size will help you to achieve the suggested time in our recipe. You want to grind finer if you extract a yield in a shorter time. And grind coarser if you accomplish the yield in a longer time than suggested.

Our smallholder farmers blend.

The philosophy behind each of our coffee blends is deeply connected to our values as a coffee roaster and a proud B-Corp. Did you know more than 20 million smallholder farming families depend worldwide on coffee and produce the vast majority of coffees? But being a small fish in a big pond is tough. That’s why we’ve created our Morning Glory coffee blend to celebrate the amazing coffees grown by millions of smallholder farming families worldwide. 

Our current Morning Glory Coffee Blend showcases outstanding coffees from smallholder coffee farmers in Ethiopia, Peru and PNG.

All coffees are wild-grown or organic certified. They are high-quality coffees and have an amazing tasting profile in their own right. But what is more, we've sourced each coffee through a transparent and fair supply chain that supports smallholders equity. That’s good for you and good for our farmers.

That's in our Morning Glory Blend.

Ethiopia - Guji Region

This Ethiopian coffee comes from smallholder farmers who plant their coffees often on land parcels as little as 1/8 hectare on
average, producing 1.5 to 6 bags of coffee. After harvest, they sell their coffee to the local washing station in Dikitu. That’s why coffees are only traceable to the washing station. The coffee is aggregated, sorted, and then processed at the washing station.

Gizaw Alemayehu Yirdaw operates the washing station. Coffee has a long history in the Yirdaw family. Gizow’s father,
Alemayehu) farmed coffee in the Gedeo highlands. After his farm was nationalised under the Derg regime, Alemeyehu moved into coffee processing, and Gizaw learned this trade from his father. He now operates several coffee-washing stations. And when ECX regulations changed, allowing privately owned washing stations to hold export licences, he opened his exporting
company streamlining the supply chain and providing welcome traceability and continuity in flavour profiles and quality of his coffees.

PNG - Simbu Highlands

PNG is blessed with some of the world’s best coffee-growing conditions. High altitude, tropical forests and traditional farming methods result in this delight, grown by tenacious smallholder farmers in the remote and rugged PNG highlands around Mt Elimbari. We source this delicious all-rounder through Kongo Coffee, an indigenous mill, ensuring supply chain transparency throughout. Totally heavenly.

That's in our Morning Glory Blend.

Peru - Cafe Femenino

This delicious organic specialty coffee is produced by women coffee growers in remote communities of Northern Peru. All coffee is shade-grown at high altitudes along steep slopes amongst bananas, mangos, cocoa and avocado trees naturally maintaining healthy soil and habitat.

Under the Café Femenino Program, which started in 2004 in Peru, women coffee growers harvest and sell their own coffee. The positive impact of this program has been hugely felt. The wellbeing, health and nutrition of families and communities has noticeably improved, and women are increasingly recognised for their contribution. An integral part of the program is the work of its Foundation, which supports social and environmental projects amongst its coffee-growing communities.

Espresso blend produced by smallholder farmers. Ethically and transparent sourced.

We play fair and walk the talk.

Playing fair is an action term. We work hard to give our talented smallholder coffee farmers, women coffee growers and independent family farms, a fairer share of a cup of coffee. For us this means buying coffee at fair and ethical prices.
This helps our coffee farmers to keep growing those tasty beans we love to roast and you love to drink. This is good for the farmer and it is good for you.
