LONDON COFFEE FEST

London Coffee Fest E V E N T U P D AT E by Michael Bishop - Alchemy Cordial Company

Alchemy was exhibiting at the London Coffee Fest last month in Brick Lane, Shoreditch. The event was pretty much hijacked from a branding perspective by Oatly, the oat milk manufacturers, who could teach the coffee world a thing or two about marketing.

Coffee Commune ~The Inside Story~ BY ERIC BADEN

For me the opportunity came when I was a chemical executive, leading an organization of 5,000 people across China. Friends in the international community in Shanghai had started a shelter with a program to rehabilitate homeless, physically handicapped people.

As part of the program, volunteers would bring a group of street dwellers with disabilities to a safe place where they could shower, receive fresh clothes, and be welcomed to a banquet of home cooked food by perfect strangers who would serve them and take an interest in their stories. The initial awkwardness quickly gave way to joy as smiles abounded and conversations took their turns. The shelter struggled to raise the funds to keep operating. Looking for a sustainable solution that would also provide employment opportunities, I discovered roasting coffee had a lot of potential. As I went to Yunnan to learn how to roast, I learned about the plight of the 300,000 small-land-hold coffee farmers there. Seeing their poverty and hopelessness up close and personal grew my vision into disrupting a century old business model that has coffee farmers trapped in dependence. The more time I spent among the Yunnan coffee farmers the more I learned about the roots of the problem.

They are hardworking people, but lacking knowledge and equipment, their coffee was ordinary at best. With an average farm size of less than 3 acres, they could not meet certification standards of large buyers, leaving them no choice but to sell to intermediaries


THE INSIDE STORY

at even lower prices than market. With an income barely enough to survive, they were unable to save, to invest, and to rejuvenate or diversify their plantations. So, in 2016, I founded Coffee Commune with the intention to bring new hope to small-land-hold coffee farmers through equipping, investing, and direct trade. One farm at a time, we began guiding them to reach their full potential and produce quality coffee, with its own character that would be valued by roasters and consumers. With our international team of agronomists, CQI Processing Qs, Arabica Q-Graders, and roasters from Canada, the USA, Germany, and China, we work alongside the farmers to improve every aspect of their coffee farms: fertilization, pruning, stumping, natural pest control, introduction of new varietals, selective picking. We help them upgrade their wet mills for cleaner processing, introducing raised drying beds and tarps for clean and controlled drying. We systematically experiment with different processing and fermentation methods to bring out more complex flavour notes, building on the good body and sweetness Yunnan coffee is known for. In 2018, we launched Project 86+, with 30 international partners from around the world including former roasting champions James Craig, Alexandru Nicolae, and Rubens Gardelli. To participate in Project 86+, farmers must follow a prescribed picking and processing protocol and we systematically record the variables that lead to a specific micro-lot. The international partners roast and cup samples of these distinct lots and give us structured feedback that we then use to develop the processing parameters further to yield coffees that roasters can sell well. The mid-term objective is to consistently produce significant volumes of coffees that are not only specialty grade but truly special. The results have already been life changing for participating farmers. Mr Wang Jun for example, works a small farm in Pu’Er with his wife, without the help of hired workers; he proudly shares that his washed green now sells for three times the price he got two years ago. Other farmers, like Mr Li in Puwen prefer to sell their cherries to us. Following our picking protocol yielded lots with over 98% perfectly ripe cherries for which we were able to pay him RMB 4/kg compared to an average market price of RMB 1.5/kg. We are greatly encouraged by these results and eager to expand the program. We invested in a micro-lot

dry mill, the only one of its kind in Yunnan, in order to enable farmers to hull small lots of honey process and natural process coffees and obtain cupping reports for their coffees from us. We are able to hull and grade 1,000 tons of premium commercial and specialty grade coffees. There are over 100 farmers that are wanting to join Project 86+ for the next harvest season. In order to make that big leap forward we are now focusing on the third and vital pillar of our program, direct trade. Selling the clean and sweet coffees that we help these farmers to produce directly to discerning roasters who share our passion is the key to continuing with our mission and to growing the number of farmers that break out of their dependence with a new hope for a better life. Up to now, our sales are still too small for Coffee Commune to cover its own costs of operations, but we are confident that through Project 86+ many roasters will become aware of Yunnan as a new, exotic origin and begin to add the coffees we directly trade to their portfolios. We pledge already now that over and above paying our farmers above market prices we will give 10% of our after-tax profits to projects that give jobs and hope to people who need a second chance. Comment from Cafe Culture International: Eric Baden presented his story at the Golden Bean 2018 and he is now ready to offer samples to roasters of this rare Yunnan coffee. The Cafe Culture team was recently in Shanghai for Hotelex and spent some fun times with Eric and his team at Coffee Commune. Eric’s passion towards this project is refreshing and I love how positive he always is when you are around him. We were also taken aback by how happy the staff are at Coffee Commune who have all come from broken backgrounds of life’s misfortune but now can see a future career in the coffee industry. It was great to see a real working charity where all players are engaged in the big picture and end goal. Eric and his team have a big project ahead of them and Cafe Culture would love to spread the word about Coffee Commune and the amazing coffees they are producing. Many charitable organizations around coffee forget about quality and this is what Eric has maintained in his business plan.

Cafe owners and chefs will be saying Bon Appetit to customers with the revolutionary cooked and snap frozen French Toast launched by Sunny Queen, one of Australia’s best-known and wellloved food brands.

We aim to help food providers save time in the kitchen as they accommodate Australian tastebuds with a versatile breakfast favourite that can be served with sweet or savoury toppings across the entire morning,” Mr O’Hara said. “Sunny Queen’s French Toast is an easy way to enhance any breakfast or brunch menu – it can be served as a complete meal, a take-away accompaniment to coffee or added to an order of bacon and eggs, helping businesses drive

All of this while delivering the crunch of traditional toast with the lightness that French Toast is renowned for.” Mr O’Hara added. And voilà!

WHAT GETS YOU FROTHING? WITH CHARLI KEMP

Almond Breeze Barista Blend, the low sugar cafe almond milk, is dedicated to pushing our industry forward and has created BaristasforBaristas.com to help continue to grow Australia’s thriving coffee scene. BaristasforBaristas.com is speaking to those leading the charge, and this month the team spoke to Townsville barista Charli Kemp, who is the lead barista at Stones Throw Cafe in Rambutan. Charli shared her journey into the coffee industry and discussed where she sees the future heading. What are the most important skills a barista can have? Knowledge of coffee origins and salesmanship. Working in a YHA Backpackers I get a lot of people who order their coffee by the names of where they’re from. For example, a macchiato in Italy is not the same as it is here in Australia, so they can be very dissatisfied if you serve them the wrong thing and if you don’t know how to rectify it you will spend too much time going around in circles trying to understand what they actually wanted to order.

so I went with a basic flat white, which to this day is still my go-to brew. How did you get started as a barista? It was about six years ago in a small Italian cafe where I worked as a waitress. I took over the coffee pass to run out all the brews and to learn and watch the baristas doing their thing – I secretly wanted to be them. After nagging and nagging the head barista I was finally taken under her wing to learn the basics of barista work and boy was I nervous! But my passion for the art outweighed those nerves and before I knew it, I was running a small cafe solo, making all the coffee and pushing myself to the limits to learn more each day. I haven’t looked back since – I love my job! What’s your favourite style of coffee and why? That’s a tough one! My favourite style to make has to be the syphon method. There’s something about it that makes me feel like I should be wearing a mad scientist coat. My favourite style to watch being made would have to be traditional Turkish coffee and how it’s brewed via heating of the sand. Both are very captivating to watch.

Tell us about your first cup of coffee… My first cup of barista made coffee was actually made by the same person who taught me the art of making a cup of coffee. I had no idea what was what whilst looking through the menu of coffee styles,

properly profile coffee and how the colour of the roast affects the flavour is something I’ll never get sick of learning.

Has anything you’ve learnt in your barista training surprised you? Yes. Like how a specific glass of wine is perfectly matched to a meal, I have found that coffee is very similar. The way to

Any advice for handling big rushes at work? Teamwork and communication go a long way in the industry. Being able to effectively communicate with your teammates about what needs to be done to relieve some pressure off your shoulders helps, but only if you ask nicely! Just remember to be patient and breathe. Before you know it that rush will be over and you’ll be there thinking, “wow go us!”. Where do you see the future of the coffee industry heading? For the stars! The coffee industry is forever changing and evolving to everyone’s preferred tastes and methods. From just being a drink for monasteries in Yemen to drive-thrus all around the world, coffee has taken this planet by storm and it isn’t slowing down… which is okay by me.

Raw Lucuma powder is grown and produced in Peru. It is made from the dried fruit of the Lucuma tree, a subtropical plant native to the Andean valley. Known as the ‘Gold of the Incas’ this fruit has been eaten and treasured in ceremonies since ancient times. Lucuma has a sweet, slightly citric, caramel flavour and an enticing aroma. The powder is a natural light brown colour and has a wonderful creamy texture. It can be used as a flavour boost and sweetener in beverages, desserts, raw foods and baking recipes. How to Use:

blue pea flower coffee TEA FROM THE BLUE PEA FLOWER CAN BE DRUNK A DIFFERENT COLOUR DEPENDING ON THE COMBINATION. THIS VERSION WITH ESPRESSO AND MILK TRANSFORMS THE DRINK INTO A TRULY INTENSIVE BLUE. WHEN MIXED WITH CITRIC ACID, IT TAKES ON A VIOLET/PINK COLOUR. IT CAN BE FOUND AT STARBUCKS, WHICH IN ASIA IS CURRENTLY TESTING A VARIETY OF THE DRINK WITH LEMONADE AND COLD BREW.

Lucuma is scrumptious in smoothies and fruit juice, or enjoy as a refreshing combo with coconut water. It can also add lovely sweetness and flavour to iced or warm herbal teas and chai. Or enjoy it with yoghurt, fresh fruit, and sprinkled over Acai bowls. This raw powder is delightful in home-made ice cream and chocolates; raw food slices, balls and puddings; desserts, pancakes and baking recipes. Use it in place of sugar and other sweeteners, or just add a few tbsps to your favourite recipes for the wonderful caramel and citrus flavours. Ingredients: Raw Organic Lucuma Powder.

CAFE IN FOCUS

Cafe [IN FOCUS] WHEN TRAVELLING AROUND AUSTRALIA OR THE WORLD IT IS INEVITABLE THAT WE STOP AND TAKE TIME TO REFUEL - SAMPLING CAFE MENUS, DRINKING COFFEE AND APPRECIATING THE UNIQUE STORIES CAFES & ROASTERIES HAVE TO TELL. THIS MONTH ANNETTE DUTTON WROTE A STORY ON A SMALL ROASTER FOUND IN HALIFAX, WEST YORKSHIRE, UK. IT IS LOCATED IN WHAT ONCE WAS THE LARGEST CARPET MANUFACTURER IN THE WORLD, THAT NOW HAS BEEN REFURBISHED AND REPURPOSED...


CAFE IN FOCUS

Loom Lounge DEAN CLOUGH, HALIFAX, YORKSHIRE

On my last visit a number of years ago to Halifax, in West Yorkshire, Northern England, the ability to find a “decent” coffee was near on impossible, so I was quite delighted on my visit there in April, to find a sign promising “great coffee”. My friend said we should go in as she has heard it was pretty good. I was delighted to smell great coffee as we opened the door of the Loom Lounge, where the owner Stuart Townsend, along with his partner Karon roast the coffee for both their roaster and cafe in the refurbished Dean Clough complex. Dean Clough was originally built in the 1840’s to 1860’s to house what became the world’s largest carpet factory, a half mile long with 1,250,000 square feet of floor space. In its hey day, Crossley’s Carpets employed up to 5,000 people.

Sadly after years of declining production, Crossley’s Carpets closed in 1983. Empty for many years, the grade II listed, six storey buildings were derelict and required a vast amount of renovation work. Bought by a consortium led by Sir Ernest Hall,15 million UK Pound went into the refurbishment of the buildings and the mills. Converted into what is now 150 large and small businesses including a coffee shop and roaster, offices, an art gallery, the Viaduct Theatre and a hotel. After previously teaching hospitality training to students at Dean Clough, Stuart and Karon started small batch craft roasting around a year ago to supply both his wholesale customers and customers at the Loom Lounge. Stuart sources beans from Colombia, Brazil, Vietnam, Honduras, Papua New Guinea,

Indonesia, Mexico, DR Congo and Peru and currently have 5 blends, with great names like Yorkshire Voodoo, Witch Doctor, Flat Cappers Fix, Mill Boss Blend and Colombian Curse as well as five single origins. Stuart, whose love of coffee began when he was quite young and would accompany his mother to a small coffee house and roastery to buy her coffee beans, falling in love with the smell and the different beans and he has been hooked ever since. Stuart admits that Dean Clough has something special and

feels that they owe it some nostalgia. In one of its many rooms, in a little corner they still produce something special. Although they are no longer weavers but roasters. When I asked Stuart what makes his day worthwhile, he answered, recently he had a customer browse his roaster for 20 minutes and as they were leaving, they stopped in the doorway and said “thank you, I don’t drink coffee but God I wish I did!” Article and Images by Annette Dutton - Take The Shot Photography

WHAT IS ROASTER SMACKDOWN® 2019? DEAN CLOUGH, HALIFAX

Roaster Smackdown® is a roasting competition built by coffee people for coffee people. We wanted to create a unique approach to competitions in the industry by making them not only accessible to the public but interactive. We broke down the wall between attendee and judge, allowing everyone the opportunity to taste and score the coffee based on their own judgement. The results from our first Roaster Smackdown® in 2018 was an incredible unanimous result from both the judges and people’s choice awarding the 2018 winner, Reuben Marden of Sample Coffee Roasters.

This year, Espresso Company is giving us two of the Aillio R1v2 roasters as the grand prize for the champion for both Sydney and Melbourne events. There is a line up of workshops and events leading up to the Roaster Smackdown that will be held at Collective Roasting Solution in Alexandria on Saturday, June 29th. For full line up of workshops and more information in regards to event please visit crs.business and follow us @roastersmackdown
