An exceptional export quality Colombian coffee. The smooth palate has delicious undertones of dark chocolate. These beans are roasted to perfection and well-suited to use as filter coffee, espresso, or espresso-based milky brews.
This is a blend of dark roast Ethiopian beans and medium roast Brazilian beans and is, on balance, a slightly darker roast overall. The choice to darken the Ethiopian beans was made to reduce the traditional acidity of this prime coffee, while the Brazilian beans were added to lend a soft, creamy body with a hint of nuttiness. This blend is ideally suited to filter and plunger brews.
Kenya AB beans have been used for this coffee. AB referring not to quality but to size, these beans typically measure between 6.2mm to 6.8mm long. As an acidic varietal, Kenya Blue has a fruitier flavour with a hint of caramel sweetness on the palate. More specifically, distinct notes of blackcurrant and berries can be discerned before finishing with a clean aftertaste.
