Christmas Espresso Blend 2014


Bean name Christmas Espresso Blend 2014
Other info Blend - see description for bean content


I'm not entirely sure when something becomes tradition, but for nine years now we have produced a special Christmas blend that's only available for the month of December. In the blend, we try to encapsulate Christmas in a coffee. We only offer this as ROASTED BEANS and when it's gone, it's gone.

It has been getting harder to formulate the blend each year; each year I want the blend to be more special than the last. But I think we have done it again. The 2014 espresso blend contains...

50% Costa Rica El Pedregal
30% El Sal La Gloria Red Pacas and Bourbon Washed
20% Kenya Othaya Chinga Natural SL28 and SL34 NH

In the cup expect a big body with blackcurrant and loads of spice. There's milk chocolate and a lovely, malty Horlicks aftertaste. Perfect after celebrating New Year's Day.

This will be on 'In My Mug' for Christmas week.

"Quick Look" Guide:
Blackcurrant, milk chocolate, malty, Horlicks, spicy.
