El Griffin Coffee
My story goes way back to 2011 when I opened a small eatery on Lark Lane in Liverpool called Raggas. If your familiar with Raggas then you will be aware of it expanding phenomenally and we eventually opened up right in the city centre on Bold St. 6 years later I decided to part from the company taking with me a wealth of experience and unforgettable memories.
One thing Raggas enabled me to do was travel the world. Over the years, me and my wife travelled from Bali to the Caribbean. Along the way, one drink that we found ourselves drinking a lot of (apart from cocktails) was Coffee! Whatever region we were in, we found that Coffee was required at some point throughout the day. Whether it was with breakfast, after dinner or even that little midday boost - Coffee was there to the rescue!
We visited a number of plantations and tasted Coffees that are made using traditional methods and some very unorthodox methods. We witnessed Kopi Luwak being processed start to finish - Just google it and you'll know what I mean.
Our vision is simple, as a family business, we want to bring the Coffees from around the world and provide them more accessible to you to save you a trip or two!
To start off, we've launched a Colombian Coffee. Colombia is the second-largest producer of coffee in the world and the largest producer of washed Arabica. The country is known for the high quality of its coffees. Our Coffee is grown in Medellín, the "City of Eternal Spring,"
It's the second-largest city in Colombia and the capital of the department of Antioquia—the birthplace of coffee in Colombia and still its largest growing region. Coffees from Antioquia are known for their medium body with a smooth, well-balanced cup that can be enjoyed any time of day. As time goes on we will be introducing different from other regions across the globe so do keep in touch!
