Literally, Bakewell Tart. Lingering notes of sweet frangipane, and berry acidity.

This is a remarkably tasty single origin grown by Union Proagro, members of the all-female Café Femenino co-operative.

This is a coffee that works really well for all brew methods, but the more intense you brew it, the stronger the frangipane notes become, and as a milky (flat white, cappuccino, latte) the sweetness of the milk or milk alternative really lifts it straight into Bakewell tart territory!

How It Tastes

Via pourover, Aeropress & cafetiere it's a very satisfying yet easy drinking coffee with subtle notes of frangipane, and you might catch some berry acidy, maybe a slight hint of chocolate.

As espresso, long black or Americano, for me the Bakewell tart flavour is unmistakable when properly dialled in, but it's a forgiving bean in that if you're not well dialled in it'll still usually taste pretty good, it just won't quite sing the sweet notes.

As a flat white or cortado (i.e. a more intense milky) for me this is an amazing coffee, the espresso cuts through but is sweetened by the milk, for some really stunning milkies!

Union Proagro - Café Femenino

This coffee is produced by female farmers of Union Proagro across the Caranavi valley in La Paz, Bolivia.

Cafe Femenino was founded in 2004 by just under five hundred female coffee producers on a mission to empower previously marginalized female coffee farmers in Peru, and now involves thousands of woman coffee producers in several countries!

Union Proagro formed in 1997, and is made up of 300 members/families from 10 rural communities.

In 2009, a group of female farmers created a woman's association, separated their production from the male farmers, and joined the Café Femenino program. There are currently 42 female producers who farm 88 hectares within the Caranavi region.

As good as I expected, and accurately described

Another great coffee from Coffeeworks. Easy to dial in, and good for ‘milkies’, which is practically all I make, but makes a good espresso as well. I’m always impressed and intrigued by the tasting notes from Coffeeworks, and I always find them accurate. Would happily buy again

Great taste (I use in cappuccino)

This is my fourth flavour of beans that I’ve had from coffee works. Always been really happy with the beans, however I did struggle at first dialling this one in. I decided to contact coffee works to see if they could help. I got a email back so quick and after discussing what grinder I used, we identified it was me and the grinder, not the coffee, did what they suggested and It dialled in perfect. It’s now gone from least to one of my favourites as you can really make out the almond notes. Massive credit where due to the customer service team of coffee works, if only they did fibre broadband as well ;-)

This coffee is delicious!!!

A really delicious coffee. Quite forgiving when brewing as espresso based drinks. Can’t get enough of this coffee! Makes a wonderful flat white and I really (and surprisingly) get those Bakewell tart flavours! Highly recommend.
