It's easy to blindly drink the same caffeinated brew for as long as you remember, but isn't it time you tried a different kind of coffee?
Direct-trade, single-origin and roasted in London, Hermanos coffee beans, which can be custom-ground to whatever size you desire, are the perfect place to start.
As the name might elude, Hermanos was set up by brothers Victor and Santiago Gamboa, who, together with Adnan Millwala, established their first pop-up in Walthamstow in 2018. From there, Hermanos has grown as a coffee brand brewed in nine locations across London, showcasing Colombian coffee's vibrant, rich and distinctive flavour.
At the core of Hermanos is a want to bring the warmth and originality of Colombian culture to the masses and, with that promoting, protecting and empowering the communities they work with. With a deep pride in what they make, Hermanos appreciates the deep tradition and constant innovation of the coffee industry, maintaining an exceptional quality of coffee that's a joy to drink.
Not sure where to start? The Hermanos Tasting Kit is the perfect gateway to experiencing the full spectrum of its coffees so that you can find your favourite from a choice of six varieties.
Our verdict on the coffee from the Hermanos Tasting Kit
Finca Las Flores
This is a complex coffee, which blends vibrant flavours of mango, passionfruit and pomegranate with a smooth chocolatey finish. It's no surprise it's one of the favourites from the tasting kit.
A perfectly balanced coffee with rich flavours of macadamia nut and chocolate, which are balanced by the sweetness of apricot Danish and sugar cane. The highlight of this bean is its syrup-like sweet finish.
Hacienda El Calapo
This blend is a great all-rounder and made for those who enjoy a sweet and balanced cup of coffee. Alongside being an organic coffee bean, a highlight of Hacienda El Calapo is its intense aroma with hints of milk chocolate, malt and walnuts.
A smooth criminal, if you will, El Fresno showcases a rich, silky texture alongside a deep, complex flavour with notes of dark chocolate, pistachio, and salted caramel.
This is a lively cup of coffee, with fruity hints of raspberry jam and apple crumble complimented by flavours of almonds, cacao and sugar cane. Hoyo Frio will suit any brewing method, ranging from espresso to pour-over.
A distinctly fragrant brew, Pijao Gesha is perfumed with flavours of orange blossom, nectarine and blueberry. Its floral edge is perfectly harmonised with the rich hint of cashew for a delicate-tasting coffee.
