Description

I'm not entirely sure when something becomes tradition, though for seven years now we have produced a Christmas special that's only available for the month of December in which we try to encapsulate Christmas in coffee. We only offer this as ROASTED BEANS and when it's gone, it's gone. This is the espresso blend, we also offer a filter blend too.

It has been getting harder each year to formulate the blend, as each year I want it to be more than the last.

The espresso blend contains:

40% Yemen Mocha Matari

This provides some boozy winey style bite, a booze fest, with spicy black pepper and chocolate.

40% Cuba-Serrano-Superior

Here we get toasted nuts, spicy notes and a whole heap of body.

20 % Kenya-Ndimaini-AA

From this comes a lively acidity mixed in with blackcurrant in cream.

Together these create a spicy, full bodied espresso with dark chocolate tones with some hints of fruit and a mouthful of Christmas spirit that is simply amazing in the cup. A great espresso that is available for a limited time.
