Inside the Best Coffee Pod Box — Roastworks
Roastworks came about when the owner, who got sick of the hustle and bustle of busy city life in London, moved back to Devon, bought a small coffee roasting machine and embarked upon a new venture. In truth, his journey with coffee beans started a long time before this. As the son of two artisan coffee roasters, he already knew a lot about coffee and the science behind roasting. His parents began roasting in the late eighties at the peak of the second wave as coffee became more than just a caffeine hit. Roastworks was inspired by industry giants like Monmouth and Square Mile and is very much based on the principles of third wave coffee. Roastworks has continued to expand and is now available at Waitrose, Wholefoods, Ocado and many other independent shop and cafes.
Roastworks have selected an exceptional and well suited coffee for this coffee pod. It’s a Sumatran coffee that lends itself very well to espresso and even more so to being a Christmassy coffee that will definitely get you feeling festive. They use 100% aluminium capsules which are fully recyclable. As always, remember to empty out any coffee grinds before you recycle. Roast works have done a great job with the packaging for their coffee capsules range with relevant information provided.
This coffee pod is from the Gegarang village. In the village, 46 members each grow their own organic coffee on a small lot of around one hectare at an altitude of 1600 to 1800 metres above sea level. This coffee has big body and acidity to match.
