Featured roaster – JULY 2016
July brings back another favourite roaster in Rumble Coffee Roasters, having featured earlier in our roaster repertoire. This Kensington outfit pride themselves on keeping the folk of Melbourne’s inner west caffeinated since 2014.
Having amassed a hoard of experience between them from managing cafes and getting their hands dirty making coffee – mates Stan Bicknell, Matt Hampton and Joe Molloy decided it was time to act on their itch to start up their very own roasting show so went about scouting the perfect space to get the show on the road.
They found their Kensington location in the latter end of 2014, set up their roastery and got to work, experimenting and finessing their unique coffee creations along the way. And they love getting the community involved in their passion, hosting regular cupping sessions to excite and teach locals about the art of coffee appreciation.
Almost two years on and they show no signs of slowing down – steadily growing their footprint now supplying to cafes far and wide.
The Rumble crew believe in sourcing only the highest grade coffee the world has to offer, and lucky for us they have agreed to share their bounty with No-BS members this month and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
Taste the sweetness of The Haymaker, Rumble’s flagship espresso blend. South American beans of Panama Don Pepe, Colombia Cachipay and Colombia El Limon beans make a delightful blend yielding tantalising flavours of toffee, orange and apricot punctuated with a sweet caramel finish. This cup makes a solid milk-based drink whilst also not disappointing as an espresso.
Explorers also get to sample their superb Panama single origin, cultivated high on the slopes of the Baru Volcano in the Don Pepe estate in the Boquete region – known for it’s optimal growing conditions for coffee, 1500 metres above sea level. This washed Catuai varietal yields a sweet and balanced cup, sweet and juicy like red apples and panela with a toffee caramel finish.
You’re tasting the Guatemala of Puerta Verde, grown in the beautiful region of Antigua. Owned by renowned farmers the Zelaya family, the pickers harvest only the ripest, sweetest cherries from each tree at least five times in the name of optimal flavour and crop sustainability. This washed Bourbon and Caturra varietal makes for a deliciously sweet and heavy-bodied coffee with notes of dark chocolate, cherry, and red apple fruitiness.
We’re also featuring their Supersonic from El Salvador for Explorers. This roast is actually a blend of beans sourced from three neighbouring farms all within the Ataco/Apaneca region, so grown in similar conditions and harvested and processed on the same day. The complex four-week drying method which follows pays off in the complexity of the coffee and sharpness of the flavours. Sweetness akin to strawberries and cream with milk chocolate and candied orange flavours are experienced in this incredible bold juicy coffee.
