Windmill Street Coffee - Spring Seasonal Blend
Our Spring 2024 Seasonal Blend is a mix of fully washed Red Bourbon coffee from the Burundi regions of Ngozi and Kayanza, and a fully washed Kenyan Duma ABC grown by smallholders on fertile, volcanic soils on the slopes of Mount Kenya and the Aberdare mountain range in the Central Province.
The Burundi element is a blend of high quality, IMPACT-certified Red Bourbon called Turaco (named for an iconic bird, native to Burundi) - the IMPACT certification ensures farmers are rewarded for their hard work and maintains long-term sustainability in the coffee supply chain. Most coffee grown in Burundi is farmed by smallholder families, and this is no exception. Many farms produce no more than 250-300 kilos of cherries per year, and these small harvests are handpicked by the families themselves before central processing.
Smallholder farmers also produce the Kenya element of the blend. This graded ABC sized blend is sourced from a variety of high-quality microlots - offering great quality AND real consistency. Grown in rich, volcanic soils at high altitude (1600-1850 masl) in the Central Province, the cherries are selectively handpicked and then processed in centralised wet mills, which are fed by high altitude streams for optimum quality.

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.
