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.
1/3 LIMA COFFEE
Bringing together Colombia and Peru for the next iteration of Red Brick, we’re ending 2020 on a high note!
Making up 2/3rds of the blend is one of our favourite coffees to work with and regular Red Brick component, Serrania. Adding brightness to Serrania's creamy chocolate and classic speciality notes, Lima Coffee from Peru offers apple acidity with caramel raisin on top!
