Finding the next Special brü to follow our showstopping version 37 – Mario Hervas x Werka Wuri was always going to be a challenge. But we had an ace up our sleeve – a micro-lot coffee from the always dependable Anbalagan brother’s Shyira washing station. This exceptional natural process Rwandan coffee has been carefully blended with a Colombian washed coffee, from the female producers in the Coopertivo de Mujeres. This 40:60 blend brings some seriously big flavours – a dense, jammy fruitiness from the Rwandan, pairing with some seriously sweet nougat, cinnamon and apple notes from the Colombian. This Special Brü is versatile, working beautifully as a pour-over, iced filter or cold brew, or even as an espresso.

Our favourite brew method for Special brü is using a chemex – Make
sure your filter is well rinsed and your chemex nicely pre-heated
before brewing. Start with 45g of coffee ground coarse like sea salt.
Bloom with 100ml of freshly boiled water, before pouring another
650g in evenly spaced pulses.

For a lovely twist on an old classic – try using 300g of ice in the
carafe, grinding a little finer and brewing the same dose with 450g of
hot water with a little extra agitation to brew some delicious iced filter.
