Birthday Blend in short

A powerful, intense, sustainable coffee. Birthday Blend from Ray & Jules is roasted slightly darker, for extra power. With an attractive crema and slight notes of fruit and nuts and full aftertaste. Sustainable coffee from Ray & Jules: slow and freshly roasted on solar energy

Fair: fair trade or direct trade

Our ultimate goal: equal and direct relationships with cooperatives and/or farmers . We want to give them ownership in the coffee chain and grow together towards climate-proof plantations.

If this is not (yet) possible, we choose FTO. Through these labels we can be sure that farmers receive support to provide for their livelihood and to invest in their coffee cultivation.

What's special
about this coffee

We sometimes heard from customers that they were looking for a strong, not too crazy, coffee that works well in fully automatic espresso machines. More and more companies were also looking for a coffee that has both espresso and lungo character.

Many tests, tastings and recipe adjustments later, our roasters Sarah & Lieze launched our very first, real ESPRESSO ROAST in December 2022. This was baptized 'Birthday Blend because this (coincidentally) coincided with 3 years of Ray & Jules.

Birthday Blend is organic & fair trade

In anticipation of deeper and more direct relationships, we opted for the Organic and Fairtrade certificates of the two coffees from which this blend is created.
