This August, specialty Colombian coffee roasters Hermanos launch a new Exotic Coffee Subscription as part of their mission to bring their native culture to the world, through coffee. Alongside this, Hermanos have launched a Tasting Kit, containing six of their best beans – perfect for an at-home tasting session or a gift for the coffee enthusiast in your life.
Hermanos – which literally translates as ‘brothers’ in Spanish – was founded by siblings Victor and Santiago Gamboa, and good friend Adnan Millwala; together, their passion is to bring the warmth, vibrancy, and originality of Colombia to the world, with heritage at the heart of everything they do.
The special nature of Colombian coffee beans comes from several things working together, from the unique climate and growing conditions, to the way beans are grown and harvested by farmers. Hermanos represents Colombian coffee at its finest; Victor, Santiago and Adnan launched Hermanos to bring the very best of Colombian specialty coffee and traditional practices to the UK.
Because of the sheer diversity of flavour profiles across the many coffee producing regions, there’s no single way to describe coffee from this country. In addition to their Classic Coffee Subscription, on 31st August Hermanos launch a new Exotic Coffee Subscription which will be a showcase into the country’s exotic beans, offering unique handpicked coffees, from different regions and farmers across Colombia.
Customers will receive a curated selection of exotic coffee beans, which includes: Koji, Pijao Gesha, Yellow Fruits, San Odolfo and El Eden, with many more new exotic coffees being added regularly to the offering. Positioned comfortably at the premium end of the market, the Exotic Coffee Subscription is priced at £29.50 per 250g bag, and customers can opt to have their coffee delivered for free, to the grind and delivery frequency of their choice.
The newly launched Tasting Kit is a combination of six of Hermanos’ best beans, each with differing tasting notes to experience the full spectrum of coffees on offer. The Tasting Kit single-origin coffees include Finca Las Flores, Maria Torres, Hacienda El Calapo, El Fresno, Hoyo Frio and Pijao Gesha. The kits are available in 50g bags priced at £28.00 or 100g bags at £46.00; and customers can choose their grind preference, including whole bean, espresso, french press, pour-over, filter, and more.
Hermanos was first established in 2018, when they launched their first pop-up in Walthamstow, and has now grown to open coffee shops across nine neighbourhoods of London, with plans to continue growing across the capital, the UK and internationally. Honouring their values as a responsible and sustainable coffee brand, they bring the very best Colombian specialty coffee to the UK. Through dialogue and direct trade, Hermanos have built sustainable relationships with farmers and producers to overcome challenges faced by the coffee sector.
