Windmill Street Coffee - Summer Seasonal Blend
Our Summer Seasonal Blend is a mix of Rwandan Akagera, a natural processed Red Bourbon grown by some of the 420 farmers working with the Akagera washing station, and a fully washed Bourbon, Catuai, Mundo Novo and Typica mix from smallholders in Santa Maria Ozolotepec, Mexico. Together they create a rich and buttery blend oozing with fruit flavours.
Situated in the Western Province, the farms supplying Akagera station range from heights of 1,535 to 2,000+ metres above sea level. Many farmers in Rwanda have small coffee plots, usually around 250 trees, and most trees are intercropped with food crops like maize and potatoes. Despite their small size, for many, coffee remains the main cashcrop and their biggest source of income throughout the year. This natural processed Red Bourbon is hand picked and sorted to ensure optimum quality, then slowly dried over a period of 52 days after processing.
35 smallholder farmers in Santa Maria Ozolotepec in Oaxaca contribute to the fully washed Mexican component.These smallholders are members of the Galguera Gomez cooperative which supports producers with training and logistics. Each farm is typically one to three hectares in size and has approximately 200 to 500 shade trees (mostly cedar, oak, ash and pine). In addition to coffee, farmers also cultivate bananas and maize as cash and subsistence crops.

Packing & Grinding
With one exception (1Kg Beans) EVERY pack of Drury coffee sold via this website is prepared to order. We weigh, grind (if required) and pack your coffee in our heat-sealed foil bags which are equipped with a one-way valve that allows the freshly roasted coffee to release its wonderful-smelling aromas without letting any oxygen in, ensuring your coffee stays fresher for longer.
We can supply our coffee in the following grinds, in ascending particle size:
For all paper filters/drip coffee
For electric and lever espresso machines.*.
For all stove-top espresso brewers.
For permanent filters and perculators.
For French Press or plunger coffee makers.
For grinding at home.
* We calibrate our espresso grind using commercial espresso equipment to give an average across ALL machines and cannot grind specifically for different models. If your machine is particularly sensitive to variation in grind we recommend grinding at home.
A note on Aeropress coffee makers: one of the Aeropress’s great strengths is its flexibility in brewing - dose weight, grind and extracting pressure all have a part to play in this. For that reason one can select any grind from espresso to cafetiere for use in the Aeropress, depending on personal preference. For those new to this form of brewing we would recommend starting off with a medium ground coffee and taking it from there.
