Lola Kampala Gold coffee is a sublime blend, organic and purchased directly from small farms without the intervention of other parties. The beans come from Uganda, Brazil and Ethiopia. The berries from Brazil are traditionally not washed and their flesh is not removed. This leaves a sweet hint of flesh retained in the beans. The washed beans from Uganda balance the eccentric berry flavor. With a part of the proceeds Lola supports Kampala Cycling, a cycling club and a bike messenger company from the capital of Uganda with Olympic ambitions.
Forget about “single origin” Lola gets its coffee from a single farmer! The man’s name is Hernando “Meko” Gutierrez and he is a fourth generation Colombian coffee farmer. All coffee under our new Oro y Paz label is bought directly from Meko and comes to The Hague straight from his Rosa Florida farm. We think that is pretty cool.
Lola is a proud partner of Rocket Espresso out of Milan. We love the performance and look of these hand-made machines and we agree with Andrew Meo, that with Rocket Espresso, you simply go faster. #fact
