This Mediterranean Blend is produced from Fairtrade accredited coffee. It is a Dark Roast Colombian Coffee . We have roasted this as Full City (also called a French) roast, dropped from the roaster just as the roast reaches second crack. This releases the natural oils in the bean without allowing the roasting process to overpower the flavour.
A French/Full City roast is darker than most modern espresso blends. These roasts are characterised by their dark colour, oily beans and lack of acidity. This gives the coffee a rich, solid flavour with a smooth aftertaste and only a hint of bitterness.
Varieties: Bourbon, Typica
Processing: Washed, sun dried.
Our Mediterranean blend works equally well with any brewing method: it makes a good strong shot for espresso-based drinks, or a nice and smooth strong Cafetiere brew.
We currently have a Special Edition Old Brown Java which you may also find of interest:
