Oca is our version of a ‘house blend’. We wanted to create a coffee that was super-easy to brew with and would satisfy a wide range of tastes.
Oca is a really accessible coffee, it can be enjoyed with or without milk, any time of the day - morning, noon or night.
In 2022 we became a carbon neutral coffee roaster. As a nod to this, the components used in the Oca blend have been selected from carbon neutral farms. We have also pledged to plant a tree every time we sell a kilogram of Oca.
The name Oca refers to a kind of communal space - an Oca was a traditional Brazilian dwelling that could be shared by different families. The Oca would typically feature several doorways in and out, with no internal divisions. Built by the community, for the community.

Ideal for espresso or a more traditional filter or aeropress (lots of chocolate notes, good body and great sweetness).
