Christmas Filter Blend 2009


Bean name Christmas Filter Blend 2009


I'm not entirely sure when something becomes tradition, though for seven years now we have produced a Christmas special that's only available for the month of December in which we try to encapsulate Christmas in coffee. We only offer this as ROASTED BEANS and when it's gone, it's gone. This is the filter blend, we also offer an espresso blend too.

It has been harder to formulate the blend this year. Normally our Christmas coffee revolves around Yemen as a base, but as we don't have any at this time, the blend has had to be built from the ground up.

The filter blend contains:

33.3% Brazil Rancho Sao Benedito - Mariana de Carvalho Junqueira Cup of Excellence

This brings a thick mouthfeel of caramel and chocolate, with the slightest hint of acidity in the background (and I mean slight) and smooth vanilla.

33.3% Rwandan Murambi Bourbon

This provides sweet treacle toffee with a smoky mid-palate, a lovely sticky mouthfeel and smooth aftertaste.

33.3% Honduras Sesesmile Cup of Excellence

This brings a bright acidity and a lemon front mixed with jasmine that turns into a bowl of summer fruits, with peach, apricot and a great sweetness.
