Kicker Espresso Blend 2010 Mk1, First Edition


Bean name Kicker Espresso Blend 2010 Mk1, First Edition
Other info Blend, see below for contents


Following on from the Jailbreak Espresso Blend, the plan is to build a range of espresso blends along a similar line, but all with very different goals and ideals. This is a super premium, super delicious, challenging, difficult blend that when it is right it sings like an angel.

This blend may need a machine and a level of precision to get exactly right, so its not for the uninitiated, and certainly not for the faint hearted. It will take work to nail exactly right, but when you do it is an amazing blend.

But when it is right expect a bight espresso with sweetness and substance, with sherbet lemons, with oranges and a vibrant effervescence that works super well in espresso and cuts through the milk in a pleasing way. A grown up coffee blend.

As always we are proud to share the ingredients with you, no secrets here.

(40%) El Salvador Finca La Ilusion Bourbon

(40%) El Salvador Finca Alaska Bourbon

(20%) Ethiopian Yirgacheffe

These are premium beans that on their own are amazing single origin coffees, but as a blend bring sweetness, acidity, body and all around deliciousness. In the cup: oranges, sherbet, lemonade, difficult. Roasted just into the first pops of second crack, it's a shade lighter than our Jailbreak Blend, but this is where, for us, the coffees are at their best.
