Caravans traveling along the Silk Road have connected civilizations and brought peoples and cultures together from across the globe for thousands of years. The Khargushi Caravanserai in Iran, was once a place that accommodated travellers and allowed for not only an exchange of goods and food but a sharing of ideas and cultures that have shaped our world. Today, the ruins of this Caravanserai are a uniquely beautiful place for @worldspokespeople to enjoy a cup of #caravancoffeeroasters finest. #welltravelled #caravanfamily

Some sweet #latteart by @michaelmakescoffee at @caravanrestaurants #caravancity. Head Barista Michael’s been with us since 2016 (if you’ve got a keen eye you might recognise him from Kings Cross), he got into coffee because of latte art and the curiosity of how people achieved amazing designs. It is still one of his main focuses today. Oh and the first concert he ever witnessed was @smashingpumpkins

Next week will see this quintessentially Kenyan cup, the Gathugu AA hit our offer, it has been a highlight of our cupping tables throughout the selection and development process in the roastery. Sweet, juicy and clean with a complex acidity this lot is the perfect finale to our seasonal run of Kenyan coffees.
Gathugu wet mill is part of the Mugaga Society. Compromising approximately 460 member farmers of which around 40% are women, Gathugu and Mugaga have built a reputation steadily for great, consistent, bold coffees.
Processing at Gathugu is second to none with attention fully focused on ripe cherry selection and careful, consistent drying practices. Typical to the region, cherry is delivered through out the day with depulping, soaking and washing happening late in the day with an overnight soak in purpose built tanks before being laid out to dry the following day in the warm morning sunshine.
We’ve found that brewing this coffee with our aeropress has given us great, consistent results. Starting with a dose of 16 g, add 250 ml of water and steep for 1.40 minutes before plunging for approx. 45 seconds. A slow consistent plunge will ensure consistent results time over time.
Sit back, drink and be happy. #welltravelled #specialtycoffee #kenya
Really enjoying my subscription from @caravanroastery
All three were represented on the cupping table in the weekend and did very well. I’ve had amazing brews with the Tambaya AA enjoying its fruity and acidic flavors #coffeesubscription #subscriptionbox #coffeepackaging #freshbeans #coffeebeans #elsalvadorcoffee #kenyancoffee #guatamalancoffee #caravan #caravancoffee #caravanroastery
We are all very excited to be working again with Jose, for the second year running, as his coffee embodies all of the elements that we’ve come to enjoy in Nicaraguan coffee; clean, sweet with a balanced fruity acidity that shines on the cupping table and in the cup.
This coffee is made up of coffee picked on one particular day of harvest, selected by us as the standout lot from the total of Jose's production. We hope that you enjoy the fruits of Jose's hard work as much as we have. #welltravelled #caravancoffeeroasters #nicaragua
