3 equal parts of Brazil, Colombia and Central America. - 100% Arabica
Brazil – A naturally processed Brazilian Arabica grown in Minas Gerais. Grown at low altitudes, this coffee has a very mild acidity, creamy body and rich chocolate sweetness.
Honduras and Nicaragua – Fully washed Arabica beans from Central America, grown at a minimum altitude of 1,350 masl. These coffees provide a soft, mellow acidity and balance to the blend.
India – Most Indian coffee is shade grown and often intercropped with other plants such as cardamom, clove and pepper. This blend contains both natural and washed Robustas. The natural provides body and sweetness to the blend, whilst the washed coffee gives a clean, chocolatey taste to the finish.
The blend is heavy, dark and robust. Designed to punch through large milky drinks, this coffee has an intense roasty taste, chocolate like sweetness and a long nutty finish.
