Welcome Reservoir drinkers & brewers! Whether you’ve scanned our O-File in a café serving Reservoir, or you’re brewing up some of its ripe stone fruit & vibrant acidity at home, here’s the latest single origin lots featured within, along with our brew guide.
Reservoir embodies our love of well-structured coffees & has been the pride of our café on Reservoir Street since 2003. It’s passed through naked handles as risties, & these days through splits as spros, always savoured for its vibrancy, the bright spark it is.
Ripe stone fruits, vibrant acidity & structured finish.

SINGLE O X PURA CEPA
In our 2nd year with Pura Cepa, we’re stoked to have brought the goodness of their ‘Betwa Aqua Batch’ Mt. Elgon Uganda coffee into Reservoir. Pura Cepa’s thing is to add value for its growers by improving tastes through special processes. They borrow wine science fermentation & drying techniques, such as Aqua Batch, where depulped coffee cherries are submerged underwater into a cocktail of esters & lactic bacteria in enormous stainless steel tanks. The intensified flavours help growers earn premiums they wouldn’t have commanded otherwise & contributes to long term sustainability.
