This is a new collaborative project for Round Hill Roastery, Standart Magazine and Martin Kingdom. We want to showcase the work of the artist with the only brief being the country of origin. This is an evolving project with each series partnering artist with coffee.
Artist Series No.1 launches with Martin Kingdom who is prominent in the speciality coffee scene. We chose a stunning Colombian naturally processed micro-lot from Juan Saldarriaga who is a young producer obsessed with growing unusual varieties of coffee trees and experimenting with processing. We discovered Juan though our partner importer Nordic Approach and upon tasting it we bought the entire lot making this coffee exclusive to the Artist Series Project.
This coffee can be purchased through our online shop and has been roasted for filter only.
