As the crops change, so do the components of our Red Brick, highlighting harvest cycles and celebrating the seasonality of coffee. We've combined the great fruit qualities from each component, and allowed the sweetness to shine.
50% RED DE MUJERES
50% SANTA ANITA
Country COSTA RICA
Region WEST VALLEY
Process WHITE HONEY
Our current seasonal blend is a mix of 50% Red de Mujeres from Guatemala and 50% Santa Anita from Costa Rica.
Well rounded, we're finding the Red de Mujeres gives ample red plum and caramel notes, beautifully complemented by the hazelnut flavours and creamy body of the Santa Anita. A deliciously balanced cup, this blend is forecast to last until October.

The recommended baskets for this espresso recipe are the VST 20g.
