Cielo Coffee Roasters is a speciality coffee roasters based in Garforth, Leeds. Here at Cielo we are passionate about building community and reducing loneliness. We ethically source some of the best green beans we can get our hands on, roast them excellently for you and then give 65% of our proﬁts to social projects. We do this because we desire to see to see people thrive in communities all around the world. Currently, we are supporting a 2 doctors from Leeds in Ethiopia who are helping children with clubfoot. 1 in 750 children are born with clubfoot worldwide. In Ethiopia this means that you are ostracised from society. These doctors are enabling children to be a part of community in a way they wouldn’t be able to otherwise.
There are a number of different variables that affect how you roast a coffee which subsequently affect the coffee that ends up in your cup. Each bean is different depending on it’s varietal, the way the coffee is processed once it has been harvested and the location of the farm – altitude, soil type, humidity – or more broadly the country of origin. These variables affect how we roast each coffee and what we are looking for when we taste the roasted coffee. We are then able to adjust the roasting proﬁle to get the best out of each bean.
Here are 2 typical examples:
Brazilian Coffee: Known for having chocolatey, nutty proﬁles. For these types of coffees we want to create a roasting proﬁle that draws out these cupping notes (it’s a bit like wine tasting). These coffees tend to follow a medium roast proﬁle. This type of proﬁle roasts the coffee enough to draw out those chocolatey nutty notes but maintains the uniqueness of the bean.
Ethiopian Coffee: Known for a having a fruity or a ﬂoral proﬁle. Fruity or ﬂoral cupping notes are more acidic. For these types of coffees we want to create a roasting proﬁle that highlights these cupping notes. We tend to roast these coffees more lightly so as not to let too many of the gases in the bean escape thus maintaining the acidity of the coffee.
What can people expect from this coffee? I love that we are doing this collaboration! The coffee that you are taking home is one of our much loved Cielo blends. Primarily you can expect to ﬁnd those smooth base notes of chocolate and nuts but you will also catch a hint of fruity acidity to ﬁnish off. As your cuppa cools that hint of fruitiness will become more prevalent.
