Wildcard Blend 04: When Brian Met Alé (Wildcard) 2017


Bean name Wildcard Blend 04: When Brian Met Alé (Wildcard) 2017
Other info Blend - see description for bean content


Our new Wildcard blend gives us a chance to explore and experiment, celebrating something specific and outside the box for a limited time only. It sits across many of the previous blends every time it changes, but expect the unexpected!

This blend came to mind at the Manchester Coffee Festival/Cup North where I'd invited Brian from the Kiriga Estate in Kenya and Alejandro from Finca Argentina in El Salvador to join me for some talks and cuppings. If the 2 can meet in person then why not make a blend with their 2 coffees? I hope you really enjoy their collaboration : )

50% El Salvador Finca Argentina Washed Bourbon
50% Kenya Kiriga Estate AB Washed

In the cup two friends meet. Chocolate sweetness of El Salvador and white wine of Kenya push against each other to make this unique blend. The aftertaste finishes with Horlicks and white grape.
