Christmas Espresso Blend 2013


Bean name Christmas Espresso Blend 2013
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 Christmas special blend that's only available for the month of December, in which we try to encapsulate Christmas in a 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.

It has been getting harder each year to formulate the blend, as each year I want it to be more special than the last. But I think we have done it again. The 2013 espresso blend contains:

50% Brazil Fazenda Cachoeira da Grama Bourbon Pulped Natural
This provides some toffee and milk chocolate, and a lovely mouthfeel.

30% Ethiopian Kebal Kercha Guji Natural
Here we get sherbet-like mouthfeel, effervescent and zingy, then this turns into a sweetness like blueberry muffins.

20% Nicaragua Finca Limoncillo Washed Pacamara
This brings lemon pith on the front end, and think those bright vibrant hops you get in craft ales.

Together these create a full-bodied espresso with milk chocolate tones, along with some hints of blueberries, lemons and a mouthful of Christmas spirit that is simply amazing in the cup. A great espresso that is available for a limited time only.

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

"Quick Look" Guide:
Milk chocolate, toffee, blueberries, lemon and hops.
