THE BARISTA
BLEND

The Barista Blend is reminiscent of the coffee blends that follow the finest of Italian traditions. With a flavour profile highlighting the origins of the beans: Ethiopian beans from the Sidamo region, featuring notes of chocolate and subtle floral taste, Colombian beans adding a delicate touch of acidity, and Peruvian beans rounding it off with a beautiful texture, full-bodied taste, and delightfully long finish.

The Barista Blend is perfect for those who enjoy single and double espressos. It is also excellent for making ristrettos, and because of its full flavour profile is also a great option for lattes and cappuccinos!

THE SIGNATURE
BLEND

The Signature Blend will charm the senses of coffee drinkers who enjoy a touch of fruitiness in their coffee. With less intensity than the Barista Blend, it showcases a higher level of acidity and noticeable notes of citrus (from the Nicaraguan beans) and silky caramel. This coffee is mild in taste but has a delightful bitter punch!

Ideal for those who enjoy americanos, the Signature Blend is also a great option for espresso-based beverages with a touch of milk, such as cortados and macchiatos.

THE DARK
NICARAGUAN

The Dark Nicaraguan is the darkest coffee we make. The way in which it is roasted gives the beans a nice sheen and level of intensity that will please those who love strong- tasting coffee. After taking a sip, you will immediately notice that it is a darker roast, with chocolatey and delicate smoky notes that is followed by a subtle fruity finish. Perfect for your morning coffee!
