Kaleidoscope & Beans for africa serves great coffee

Kaleidoscope was previously known as the Institute for the Blind, and has a long and proud history of assisting the visually impaired. 

In an initiative with Beans for Africa, a large scale coffee importer, Kaleidoscope has found gainful employment for a number of visually impaired people, who blend, taste and pack a unique roast of coffee called the Blindiana Blend, which is also served at the Blindiana Barista Coffee Shop, on the premises of Kaleidoscope.

Recently, one of the graduates of the Kaleidoscope & Beans for Africa initiative, Joseph Matheatau, became South Africa’s first blind barista. 

We had a cupping of the Blindiana Blend and found that this 100% Arabica coffee, with beans sourced from Central and South America as well as Africa, has been roasted to a medium dark finish, which created a medium-bodied, bright and bittersweet espresso.

Most of the people at the cupping enjoyed this blend and were fascinated by how this coffee was created and in particular by the story of Joseph Matheatau.

Blindiana Coffee may be bought online from the www.kaleidos.ecwid.com or better still, pop into the Blindiana Barista Coffee Shop when you next visit Worcester and watch Joseph in action before buying you bag of beans.
