Description

As time moves on and the seasons change, coffees come and go – so we need to update our blends. We always do our best to create our blends with coffees that we know aren't going to run out super soon, and always aim for at least 4 months of each blend being the same, but obviously all good things eventually have to come to an end.

While the name and components may change, the flavour profile lives on. The ‘Black’ profile celebrates a heavier, natural process-led espresso. Think dried fruit, dark chocolate and a rich mouthfeel.

Black Hole replaced Blake, and then Eclipse replaced Black Hole, and then Black Tower replaced Eclipse, recently Black Beauty replaced Eclipse and now we say hello to Thundercloud! It's the same delicious profile, just with a different name to show off the different component coffees. For those of you who remember the slight older days, this coffee also replaces Breakfast Bomb.

This is Thundercloud.

70% Nicaragua Finca Limoncillo Natural Bourbon
30% El Salvador Finca Argentina Natural Bourbon

In the cup it's all about that bass! Dark chocolate takes centre stage with little riffs of plum and dried currants, backed by a big, gloopy body.

Roasting Information
Medium dark - slow it down once you reach crack and drop this with the very first pops of second crack.
