Some terms explained

Single origin means the beans are sourced from a particular geographical location within a country. Single origin beans inherit the characteristics of their geographical regions, making them distinct; giving them their own unique, charismatic flavour. Sourcing from a specific region also assures a greater overall consistency of flavour and quality over time. See our single origin coffee bean menu here.

At Charisma Coffee, a blend is developed to specific, quality-controlled ratios of single origin, organic 100% Arabica beans that are combined to produce a distinct flavour and character. See our coffee blend menu here.

Rainforest Alliance coffee utilises rusticano methods. This is where coffee trees already grow, or are planted in an existing forest with few changes to the native plants.

Policultura traditional or traditional polyculture integrates other non-native agricultural plants to allow farmers to grow a diversity of species.
