At Jozi we take our coffee seriously, which is why we’ve teamed up with Extract Coffee Roasters to provide the best coffee experience possible. Our coffee has been specially selected to satisfy every coffee drinkers needs. At the moment we serve Dr Strangelove, which is perfectly described by Extract Coffee Roasters below:
“This year we've chosen this tasty washed coffee from the Bugoye Washing Station in Rwenzori, Uganda. As an espresso or americano, Dr Strangelove has notes of dark chocolate orange and cinnamon. With milk these flavours soften to sticky sweet cinnamon buns and orange curd. Get in!
ABOUT DR STRANGELOVE ESPRESSO
Stop worrying and love the brew has become a mantra for Dr Strangelove. Each year we look for an accessible speciality coffee which will taste great with milk and without to be enjoyed by coffee novices and connoisseurs alike and our 2022 Strangelove will not disappoint! This year’s Dr Strangelove is grown in Western Uganda’s Rwenzori Mountains, some 2,200 meters above sea level. High altitudes, fertile soils and regular rainfall mean coffee grown here matures slowly, developing rich, complex flavours, in this case a bright orange acidity and sweet cinnamon notes.
MEET THE GROWERS
The coffee is grown by individual smallholders and once cherries are ripe they are brought to the washing station for processing. Using water to determine the density of the cherries, they are separated, soaked and pressed through a screen to remove the skin and fruit. The coffee beans are then sun dried and finally graded. The team at the Bugoye Washing Station are empowering Rwenzori growers to improve their yields, profits and living conditions. Growers are encouraged to produce higher-quality coffee through the care of coffee trees, and selective picking. Employees at the mill benefit from health insurance and pensions. All this contributes to the community reaching economic sustainability, beyond charitable support.
MEET THE ROASTERS
Dr Strangelove is always roasted on Bertha, a 30 year old 120kg Probat coffee roaster which we rescued from Bosnia in 2012. When we found Bertha she was completely decommissioned, a pile of parts destined for scrap. Over four years we rebuilt this machine, retro-fitting an afterburner to eliminate VOCs from it’s emissions and drastically improving fuel efficiency. Today, Bertha runs on just 40% of her original fuel consumption - a beautiful and efficient machine.
Filter coffee has been a successful addition to the menu, with speciality guest coffees making appearances on our batch brew. Speak to us about what we’re brewing on the day!
