Red Blend 04: Red Rum 2018


Bean name Red Blend 04: Red Rum 2018
Other info Blend - see description for bean content


This is the newest version of our Red blend - Red Rum.

As time moves on and the seasons change, coffees come and go – so we need to update our blends. We always do our best to create our blends with coffees that we know aren't going to run out super soon, but obviously all good things eventually have to come to an end.

While the name and components may change, the flavour profile lives on. Our red blend focuses on balance, sweetness and clarity, while also being easy to work with and super forgiving.

Interested in the blend name timeline? In ye olden days there was Jailbreak, we changed that to Red Giant when it became the first of our new Red blend series. Since then it turned into Sunset then Merlot, and now here we are with the newest version, Red Rum. It may sound like a lot of changes, but that's going back a long way – our aim is to have each blend last for around about four months. It's the same delicious profile, just with a different name and different component coffees.
