Description

Following on from all the new espresso blends, it was time to turn our attention to the the long lost De Lujo blend. De Lujo was a blend of bright and sweet coffees; citrus loveliness at a more reasonable price than, say, the Kicker espresso blend (which was the CoE blend replacement).

Like the Kicker, this blend should challenge the palate and not be an easy option, needing hard work to get the best from it. Get it wrong and it will have claws that catch and jaws that bite, but your rewards for slaying this blend shall be plentiful.

Why Jabberwocky? For those who don't know, it's a famous Lewis Carroll poem from 'Alice in Wonderland.' It has always been my favourite poem.

The verse just seems to fit this blend perfectly and as with all of the new blends, it offers a personal link. The poem was written in the home of Lewis Carroll's parents just outside Sunderland, and I am a huge Sunderland football fan. It all seemed too much of a coincidence, so the blend was born.

This is the 13th edition of Jabberwocky. In the cup expect sweetness from the Rwandan with the Burundi bringing fruity/citrus bright acidity. The Colombian Las Mercedes gives it a challenging flavour to tie the others together and make something that is not your typical espresso.
