We’ve named our Nyala blend (previously called Suprem) after the rare mountain antelopes found in high altitude woodlands in central Ethiopia, which is also home to some of the beans that go into this blend. Our Ethiopian beans are matched with equally high quality, 100% washed Arabica beans from Mexico and Guatemala and natural Arabica from Brazil.
Just like its namesake, the resulting blend is distinctive and appealing. Smooth and bursting with the flavours of fruit, almonds and sugar cane, it has light, floral top notes making a premium coffee with good body and balanced acidity.
Mountain nyala are an endangered species, and there are now thought to be fewer than 2,500 left. They’re one of the largest antelopes, standing an impressive 1.2m at the shoulder. They’re so timid that zoologists have only known about their existence for just over 100 years, but we do know that they’re beautiful and striking, with curved horns and bands of white on their necks and legs.

Nitrogen packed coffee beans – Freshness guaranteed!
All of our coffee beans are packed in nitrogen. Packaging with a nitrogen flush ensures no human contact and helps preserve the coffee beans. Using nitrogen removes oxygen from direct contact with the beans. This prevents oxidisation and ensures the coffee tastes freshly roasted. This will give you shelf life for over 12 months (unopened).
Coffee beans are filled with aromatic oils that create the flavour, crema and the full experience of the drink. Oils, however, oxidise and by packing in nitrogen removes the oxygen in the bag. By removing oxygen and moisture in the package also ensures no bacterial growth.
Nitrogen is an inert gas that is both odourless and food-safe. It is also abundantly available. Nitrogen is a great gas to use to flush out oxygen from coffee bags that have just been filled with freshly roasted coffee.
