3 x 250 grams of whole roasted coffee beans, packed in a gift box with information on each coffee.
Here we present to you our roasters choice of coffee – three very different coffees. We want to show you a world of different flavors, and this is why we choose these specific coffees:
Guatemala – For the first time in the history of da Matteo, we've bought a coffee from Guatemala, and wow what a complex coffee. We've found notes of everything from rhubarb and white currants to truffle and chocolate ganache.
Colombia – Our latest release from Colombia, which is run solely by women. For us, this taste like summer, a crispy caramelized blueberry pie and we just love it. Hope you feel the same way we do!
Kenya – This is a classic Kenyan coffee which we've had for a while, and it's been really good for a long time. We recommend this for cold brew as well, to bring out all of the berrylike notes, as well as the sweetness.

Farm/washing station: Ceiba
Taste profile: Smooth with notes of red currant, truffle and ganache
Our first ever coffee from Guatemala and the region Huehuetenango is named after the country’s national tree; the Ceiba. In early Mayan and Mesoamerican cultures, the Ceiba symbolized the connection between land and sky. This lot is a community coffee, investing in sustainable sourcing to benefit a large group of producers. After the leaf rust epidemic several years ago, Huehuetenango is still recovering and a big support from coffee sourcers, importers and producers has been crucial to keeping family farms in operation.
PRODUCER: SANTA MARIA
Farm/washing station: Finca Santa Maria
Taste profile: Sweet with notes of blueberry jam and caramel
Finca Santa Maria is one of nine farms within La Pradera in Santander, and is run by 22 women, all heads of household. They strive to produce coffee in harmony with the natural world. The farm is certified with the Con Manos de Mujer seal, which verifies that the coffee was produced by the work of women producers, that share the labor of planting, tending, pruning, harvesting and processing the coffee. This lot underwent the Honey process, where ripe cherries are harvested,cleaned and sorted before being fermented whole for 22h. The pulped cherries are then anaerbically fermented with controlled temperature.
PRODUCER: MURANG'A AA
Farm/washing station: Murang'a
Taste profile: Creamy with notes of black currant, violett and raspberry
The Gondo factory is operated by the New Kiriti Farmers Cooperative Society. Coffee cherries are picked and brought to the factory that same day for selection and separation, as hand sorting happens before depulping begins. The ripe cherry is processed using freshwater from the local Kananahu stream, and the coffee is dried under full sun. Coffee in Kenya is typically traceable down to the factory or mill level; most farmers own very small farms and grow other crops besides coffee as well, which means they rely on a central processing unit for sale and processing of their coffee. The factory and cooperative sort, weigh and issue payment for the harvest and then mix up the cherries with the rest of that days deliveries.
