A classic Burundi washed bourbon - sweet acidity and winey depth with a light spicy note to the cup.

Part of the Akawa project aimed at more stable supply chains in Burundi, the cherries from this lot have met strict quality controls at drop-off. The producers are paid up-front for their crops, something uncommon for the origin, and premiums on all coffee sold are used to train farmers in better management practices.

The Bourbon crops cultivated here enjoy the rich volcanic soils, optimum conditions for the plant, and with the station servicing 833 farmers from the surrounding area it has become a true resource-hub for the region.

Bath

In Melbourne, they discovered an underground movement called Third Wave coffee. Captivated by the flavour and provenance-driven approach to coffee, they dove in head-first and learned everything possible about this enigmatic drink. Maxwell and Lesley were driven by the opportunity to learn and innovate at a time when people were beginning to think differently about what coffee could be.

In 2009, they opened the destination coffee shop Colonna & Small’s in Bath, UK. The shop was dedicated to showcasing the most exceptional coffees in a space built to engage a conversation around coffee. Colonna & Small’s soon became internationally recognised and was awarded the ‘Best Coffee Shop in Europe’ title in 2016.

Colonna & Small's quickly became a hub for innovation. Maxwell and Lesley built a team and grew a customer base, who all shared their passion for great coffee. The company became part of the international coffee circuit, seeing Maxwell taking part in coffee competitions, collaborating with industry experts, scientists and inventors from many different fields.

Our founder Maxwell won the UK barista championship in 2012, 2014 & 2015. This connected us with a global network of fellow coffee enthusiasts and allowed us to collaborate further and wider in the pursuit of exceptional coffee.
