These coffee flowers come from java variety coffee trees grown at the La Linda coffee farm owned by producer Pedro Rodriguez in Caranavi, Bolivia.
With an interest in trying to make use of every part of the coffee tree, Pedro decided to produce his own coffee flower tea. After experimenting with several varieties, Pedro found that the java variety produces an incredibly aromatic and distinct flavour. The flowers are picked individually by hand, at just the right time so as not to hinder the production of fruit. They are then dried for a few hours on raised beds to preserve their flavour. Produced to order, this batch of tea was made especially for us – it is otherwise extremely rare and hard to find!
To brew, we recommend using a French press or a teapot at a ratio of 2-3g of flowers to 220ml 80-degree water. Steep for 2 minutes. Our Coffee Flower Tea also tastes great iced on a hot day!
