The Melbourne International Coffee Expo is back for 2017 and we're is proud to present three exceptional coffees from Café Takesi, specifically sourced for this event. Only available to try in Australia at Seven Seeds Carlton, Hortus and Brother Baba Budan, available on Friday 31st March.                                                                                              
But only until stocks last... We only have a small allocation of each coffee available and we’re sure it won’t last long.                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                               
CAFÉ TAKESI, JAVA YANACACHI, BOLIVIA
ONLY AVAILABLE AT HORTUS 
This Java originally travelled from Nicaragua as gift to Cafe Takesi. The farmland itself stretches alongside the river Takesi and up through the mountainous ranges that belong to the winding and mighty Andes. Altitudes range from 1700 masl right up to 3200 and because of the unique location, the cherries develop a flavor profile all of their own. Only select preferred sections are used for growing, with other parts being used for fruit and other organic products.                                                                                                           
CAFÉ TAKESI GEISHA, YANACACHI, BOLIVIA
ONLY AVAILABLE AT SEVEN SEEDS
This coffee is none other than the illustrious Geisha. We’ll go you one further - what if
it was grown at the highest recorded coffee farm in the world? Say hello to Cafe Takesi’s Bolivian Geisha. With fields as high as 2500masl, this shrub produces more fruit than what is usual. Because of its location and the studious approach of the Cafe Takesi Team, this was the one place the seeds, gifted from Hacienda La Esmeralda, were able to be germinated.                                                                                                                   
CAFÉ TAKESI, TYPICA PEABERRY, YANACACHI BOLIVIA
ONLY AVAILABLE AT BROTHER BABA BUDAN
One of the more well known coffee varietals, this particular Typica has been grown organically at higher altitudes than what it is probably used to. As a result the trees produce remarkably thicker leaves and impart more complexity to the flavour. The varietal itself was originally gifted to Takesi farm from friends of another growing region, Caranavi.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              
We’ll also be running a social media competition for anyone who purchases one of the three coffees on Friday. Simply snap a photo of your coffee and sourcecard, tag @7seedscoffee and #7seedstopshelf and go in the chance to win a merch & kit pack. For three chances to win visit all three venues!
