Christmas Filter Blend 2013


Bean name Christmas Filter 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 filter blend: we also offer an espresso blend.

The filter blend contains:

50% Rwandan Kinunu Washed Red Bourbon
This gives the cup a Lemon pithiness, a coffee specially selected for this blend.

30% Costa Rica Carlos Arrieta Washed Caturra
I've wanted to blend with this ever since I have had it, but its too expensive and too rare to do so, but hey it's Christmas. This gives the cup peaches and pineapple and brightness, a summer fruit salad.

20% El Salvador Santa Petronas Washed Pacas
This gives it that champaign sparkling edge, with milk chocolate sweetness.

Together they bring a lemon-bright, citrus refreshing delight that takes me back to Christmases of old, mixed in with amazing sweetness of Chocolate and champagne.

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

"Quick Look" Guide:
Lemon, champagne, sweet, fruit salad.
