Cafe Harlequin Espresso Blend 2009


Bean name Cafe Harlequin Espresso Blend 2009
Other info 50% Brazil Fazenda Cachoeira, 0% Guatemala En


At our 2nd 'Meet Up', which took place in York, we talked about the Harlequin Blend and its make up. It's a base of 50% Brazilian Fazenda Cachoeira for sweetness and that lovely 'Cachoeria caramel', plus 30% Guatemala Entre Rios for acidity and also another level of sweetness with its dark chocolate, then for the grunt and base to cut through milk, 20% Sumatra Raja Batak.

A perfect blend for milk, and very forgiving if pulled a little long, short, hot or cold. This special is in partnership with the 'In My Mug' we recorded at the Cafe Harlequin during the 'Meet Up', and it will only be on offer for the month of April, after after which it is no longer going to be available on the site. Also to tie in with the money already raised from the 'Meet Ups', we will donate 50p from each pack into the fund. Where the fund goes we don't know yet, but as soon as we see the right project we will know - and so will you!
