TELL ME A TIME - Mental Health Coffee
This months coffee is Brazil - Fazenda Cetec and our chosen charity for all profits to be donated to is CALM.
The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against suicide. Every week 125 people in the UK take their own lives. And 75% of all UK suicides are male. CALM exists to change this. Join the campaign to take a stand against suicide.What we do
Anyone can hit crisis point. We run a free and confidential helpline and webchat – 7 hours a day, 7 days a week for anyone who needs to talk about life’s problems. We support those bereaved by suicide, through the Support After Suicide Partnership (SASP).
Together we’ll help our parents, siblings, partners, friends and colleagues. We spread our message and facilitate, universities, pubs, clubs and prisons across the country – so that people feel empowered to share their experiences and get the help they need before they reach the point of crisis.
MENTAL HEALTH COFFEE.
Coffee - what a medicine! Although, too much can increase levels of anxiety I honestly feel that its a lot more than just a drink. Some of my most important conversations, life decisions and unsuccessful Tinder dates have been over a cup of coffee. A previous mentor first promoted me to get professional help for my headspace over a cup of Nescafe Gold. Hence why I’m excited to collaborate with Chipp Coffee Co to create a mindful product that has an impact.
100% profit will be donated to a relevant mental health charity by purchasing a Chipp Coffee Co x Tell Me A Time Coffee. The coffee will change each month to keep things interesting but the charities which are donated too will also change on a monthly bases and we are open to suggestions! We hope that these coffees are the catalysts for meaningful conversations or meetings with a mate. Make sure to tag us on Instagram so we can see how you are drinking yours!
Roast Profile:- Medium/Light
For six generations, the Aguilar family has produced coffee on the shade-rich land on the north-eastern slope of the San Salvador Volcano, with a direct view over the capital city of San Salvador. The estates cover nearly 160 hectares at altitudes ranging from 1,250 to 1,700 meters (4,100 to 5,577 feet), the top of the farm being unusually high for El Salvador and lending to great coffee growing potential.
Las Mercedes and sister estate Santa Maria are surrounded by 100 hectares of nature reserve designated as a part of the Meso-American Biological Corridor, including a remarkable ‘mini rainforest’ with a noticeable temperature drop as you reach the very highest coffee areas. Given the importance of the preservation of the forest, the Aguilar family, in conjunction with a local NGO, have two park rangers that look after the protected natural forest year-round.
The coffee has been processed in keeping with ecological friendly processes at the nearby Tuxpal mill. A neat and efficient wet and dry mill serving the local specialty producers, with patios and raised beds, optical sorting and a clear attention to detail. Washed coffee is held in fermentation tanks for around 12 hours. Sun dried on clay patios for 14+ days, to help create a rich full body and clean cup. Fernando’s vision of utilising the natural advantage of altitude and re-committing to varietals that lend to best cup profile over rust resistance and yield, and simply managing the plant stock through good farm work, agronomy investment and experience is a bold one, but managed impeccably well. This has allowed the emergence of very high quality production in general, including this specially prepared selection from pickings around the estate.
