Our Coffi Story

1085 Snowdonia Coffi is a coffee company that was conceived by two friends while having a chance meet in uncertain times. Coffee brought us together, helped break down our barriers and talk. We hope it helps you too.

Through talking, the idea of 1085 Snowdonia Coffi was conceived, we wanted a blend/roast that we could enjoy pre or post cycling, help fuel our next adventure or simply catching a sunrise.

We understand not everyone is a seasoned coffee drinker, but with a little help from our three blends you might just enjoy the occasional trip to the dark side.

Currently we offer a 10, 8 and 5 blends/roasts. They come in a variety of sizes/packaging and can be used with a stove top, minipresso, cafeteria or straight into the pour over.

So, talk and reflect over a 1085 Snowdonia Coffi

Our Coffi

1085 Snowdonia Coffi – 10

10 is Monsooned Malabar coffee, originating from South West India.

India Monsooned Malabar is a particularly strong coffee bean with unique combinations of brown spice, tobacco, and wood notes with an intense earthy finish.

Monsooned Malabar creates a full body brew with low acidity and works well as an espresso blend.

The monsooned process is unique to the South-West coast of India, consisting of exposing green coffee to the high humidity conditions. During the monsoon season, exposure to humidity causes the coffee beans to swell as they soak in moisture, unveiling the distinct aromas and unique flavours of the coffee beans. The process takes between 12 and 16 months as the coffee beans double in size and turn a pale golden colour.

This processing method dates back to an era when raw green coffee beans were transported from India to Europe via the Cape of Good Hope – a journey which could take up to six months. With coffee beans stored within the wooden hulls of sailing vessels, it was noticed that the sea winds and humid atmospheres of the monsoon season transformed the character and state of the beans, enhancing their flavour profile.
