This blend has been handed down through the generations and is a closely guarded secret, the current owners were handed the recipe in an envelope with the shop keys when they bought the business! In many ways this coffee is the cornerstone of our business. It is by far our biggest seller on the wholesale side and has proven to be very popular over the counter as espresso machines have become more available for home use.
Although the blend is over 150 years old it still holds its own in today’s saturated coffee market; we have recently won a Great Taste Award from the Guild of Fine Foods. The judges described the blend as being an “Interesting coffee. Forceful on the palate. This is deep and quite complex. Warm milk rounded it well. An undemanding drink that satisfies and offers an interesting mix of flavours. A clever blend.” Fine praise indeed!
Best used for espresso coffee this blend delivers a tart berry acidity, caramel body and a bittersweet chocolate finish.
