Wilton Benitez is a highly specialised coffee producer, with a lifetime of experience in cultivating exotic and sought after coffee.

Wilton started to learn the fermentation technology used in various industries including wine, beer and cheese. Once he had an understanding of how these products were processed, he started controlling certain variables in the processing of coffee, including the sugar content, PH level and fermentation duration.

There are three main factors that provide his coffee with a unique and exquisite taste: the fermentation process, the microorganisms used at each stage, and the method of soaking the beans in hot and then cold water to seal the grain.

Proud Mary is the best in the business and when they offer you a coffee of this level, you have to take as much as you can!

This coffee placed 2nd in the Indonesian Cup Of Excellence. Each year, coffee producing countries hold a competition called The Cup of Excellence.

Coffee #3

Roaster: Seven Seeds, Melbourne, Australia

Farm: Finca Takesi
Origin: Bolivia, Yanacachi
Process: Washed
Varietal: Java
Roast Date: 19/09/22
Flavour Notes: Pear, Lavender, Grapefruit
Price Per Serving: £12

One of the hardest coffees to get your hands on, with only 5 roasters that have the privilege to purchase this coffee globally! The world renowned Takesi farm in Bolivia Roasted by one of the industry’s leading roasters in the form of @7seedscoffee Melbourne, this coffee is grown at altitudes between 2500–3000 metres above sea level making it the highest grown coffee in the world (according to @guinnessworldrecords). The trees which the coffee grows on freeze at night due to the altitude while the root systems are kept warm by mulch leading to a slower maturation period for the cherries which contributes to the incredible complexity of this cup. We usually have the Geisha from this farm but this time we have purchased the Java variety (traditionally found in Indonesia). The coffee has the usual florals and bergamot flavours that Takesi provides but with a juicier, more round mouthfeel. This is a special coffee.

Coffee #5

Roaster: Friedhats, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Farm: Cafe Granja La Esperanza - Hawaii
Origin: Colombia, Cauca
Process: Natural
Varietal: Mokka
Roast Date: 30/01/23
Flavour Notes: Oolong, Heavy Spices, Complex
Price Per Serving: £10

You’ve heard someone say mokka before. You can remember it now. It’s a frothy coffee with some cheap chocolate and half a shot of a dark roast espresso. It makes you shudder. M o k k a. BUT WAIT. It’s not that at all… actually, it’s a Dwarf mutant of the Bourbon variety and looks similar in many ways to the low-caf laurina variety.

It’s a tiny bean and its cherry is filled with sweet juices and it ferments in those juices - that’s right, it’s a natural and it’s grown on a farm called HAWAII at around 1500masl from our friends at Cafe Granja La Esperanza in Colombia.

They have been experimenting and have exemplified what it means to be small but mighty. A 48-hour fermentation is quality controlled with temperature checks every 10 hours leaving our Hawaii Mokka with flavour notes of gunpowder oolong and heavy spices. This cup comes greeting you with an intense funky fragrance and leaves you with a long, complex aftertaste.

Coffee #7

Roaster: Manhattan, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Farm: El Vergal, "Queen"
Origin: Colombia, Tolima
Process: Carbonic Maceration
Varietal: Gesha
Roast Date: 20/02/23
Flavour Notes: Raspberry, Passionfruit, Marzipan
Price Per Serving: £13

The story of the two brothers beginning in coffee is quite unusual. Their farm El Vergel was primarily a vegetable farm prior to entering the coffee world. Around ten years ago Elias expressed interest in segregating a portion of their farm to try and grow coffee. Interestingly enough somehow Elias got his hands on some incredibly unique coffee saplings.

The processing goes as follows.

72 hours of Carbonic Maceration fermentation submerged with java Lixiviates (the liquid aftermath of coffee fermentation), followed by 24 hours of aerobic fermentation submerged with lactosbacillus bacteria. The coffee is then dried slowly at with varying humidities to control the moisture content. 

Tasting like raspberry, passionfruit, and marzipan. It's a sweet fruit bomb not to miss!

Coffee #8

Roaster: Special Guests, London, UK

Farm: Finca La Negrita
Origin: Tolima, Colombia
Process: Darkroom Natural 
Varietal: Red Gesha
Roast Date: 01/11/23
Flavour Notes: Black Grape, Cherry Liqueur, Dried Strawberry
Price Per Serving: £13


Located in Tolima in Colombia and owned by Mauricio Shattah, Finca La Negrita is home to some of the most sought after coffee varietals - including Mokka, Sudan Rume and Gesha amongst others. 

This is Mauricio's Red Gesha. Once picked, whole Gesha cherries are placed into a sealed stainless-sleet tank, with added yeasts, before being left for 48 hours to ferment. The use of stainless-steel tanks allow Mauricio and his team control over the fermentation, as it creates an environment to avoid lactobacillus bacteria growth, whilst still creating complexity to the final cup. 

The cherries are the pre-dried to avoid mould growth, before undergoing further drying in a UV-protected environment.
