And we're live!

It's been a long and winding road on the journey to starting The Persistent Drip. We couldn't be happier that it's finally come to fruition!

We have always had a fascination with coffee and the social aspect that surrounds it. What started as intrigue turned to passion and so decided to start a business. A little over two years ago we began developing our brand and roasts and working to build relationships with our suppliers to ensure we are able to offer the best products and value to our customers.

Naming a business can be overwhelming. We wanted our name to mean something to us while also playing on words that denote we are a coffee company. We believe an invaluable characteristic in life is persistence; the drive and determination to work through difficult situations to overcome and achieve a set goal. The Persistent Drip was something that came to mind and when googling to see if this was already taken we came across a quote from Roman era poet that perfectly conveyed our thoughts.

"Dripping water hollows out stone, not through force but through persistence."   - Ovid

Now to the coffee. We are starting off with 3 roasts that we love; our Daybreak espresso blend, and our two single origin roasts, Kefita Ethiopian and Magdalena Colombian.

Daybreak is an exceptional espresso blend with beans from Brazil, Guatemala, Indonesia and Colombia roasted to a light/medium profile which results in a rich mouth feel containing nutty notes and a dark chocolate finish. Daybreak is great as a straight shot, or double, of espresso or as the base of a cappuccino, latte, cortado or any other espresso beverage that you love to enjoy.

Kefita hails from Sidamo Ethiopia and the beans are grown at a higher altitude between 1900-2100 meters which is where its name is derived; Kefita meaning altitude in the native Amharic language. A lighter roast profile of citrus notes, a fruitful cup and delicate finish.

Magdalena takes its namesake from the largest river in Colombia, running through the growing region of Huila where our beans are sourced. This single origin light roast is the perfect daily bean that never gets old. It's smooth yet flavorful and is great in any brewing method or iced.

As we continue to grow, we plan to develop new roasts we think you'll love along with even more great products to fuel your coffee obsession. Have a look around, sign up to our customer newsletter, check us out on Social Media and why not buy something while you're here.
