Nadia Hernandez

We were lucky enough to have ex-Brisbane, now Sydney designer, Nadia Hernandez, work on a branding story for Lowlands. Below is the beautiful design that currently adorns our cups. The series will slowly be made into stamps to feature throughout the shop. It feels a bit like getting stuff in cereal boxes and collecting all of them. Same anticipation.

Honduras Aguas Dulce COE #14

Tomorrow we will have a Cup Of Excellence lot from Honduras running as an espresso single as well as filter coffee. The Aguas Dulces (translates to 'fresh waters') placed fourteenth with a score of 85.59. Worked beautifully as a pour over this afternoon so looking forward to playing around with it a bit tomorrow.

We are on to the last couple of days of all this work. Seems like an appropriate time to post something. Our 2 group Synesso Hyrda arrived yesterday. Sad to see our Linea go but excited about what this new machine brings in terms of pressure profiling and the experimenting we can do with that.
