Kicker Espresso Blend 2011 Mk1


Bean name Kicker Espresso Blend 2011 Mk1
Other info Blend - see description for bean content


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 sings like an angel when it is right it.

This blend may need a machine and a level of precision to get exactly right, so it's 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 Sidamo Washed

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.

Roasting Information:
Take it into first pops of second no further!!
