Red Brick

Seasonal Espresso
£8.00

This blend is all about really enjoying the best lots of coffee that are in season right now.  We want to combine great fruit qualities from each of the components, and their sweetness which comes from the careful and hard work of the producers involved.

This is our current seasonal espresso blend. Right now the blend is composed of 5 different lots of coffee from 2 different origins.

50% LA BOLSA (GUATEMALA) 

10% RABANALES (GUATEMALA)

10% KAIGURU AA (KENYA)

20% SAN JUAN (GUATEMALA) 

10% LA FLORIDA (GUATEMALA) 

Weight 350G

Red Brick - 1

From the largest component La Bolsa we found a nice grape sweetness with an apple acidity and notes of vanilla and peach.

The San Juan has lovely confectionary qualities which are complimented by the hazelnut in the Rabanales. Toffee and chocolate notes in the La Florida further enhance the overall sweetness.

The Kaiguri AA brings the classic Kenyan flavours of blackcurrants, raspberries, cherries and red currants with a crisp mandarin acidity and a sweetness which reminds us of fruit pastilles.
