A mild roast blend of Guatemala and Peru
This is one of our most popular medium-mild coffees. In recent years there has been a growth in demand for mild roast coffees with Brazil a popular starting point. However we find Peru, though more expensive, works better on a mild roast and unlike most Brazils it is available as organic Fairtrade.
Guatemalan offers excellent flavour and body which the Peru is wrapped around (to use trade expressions)
Flavour notes: a Full bodied rich flavour with high acidity with slight fruity and chocolate tones.
Our for all methods grind is finer than many other producers. This helps the flavour to seep into your drink. For mass market suppliers there is a problem with this: over time a finer grind will lead to faster staling on supermarket shelves. But our direct distribution ensures that our coffee is fresh and benefits from the finer grind.
We have designed this for all methods grind to work in a cafetiere, filter or stove top machine. Note: when coffee is ground for all methods it cannot be perfect. Where available it can help to use the specific grind. So a cafetiere grind will make larger grounds and reduce any sediment at the bottom of your cup. A filter grind will slow down the infusion and get more out.
As the roast of the coffee gets stronger the grind needed gets finer, so a continental roast will run through very fast while a medium to mild coffee using the same system will go through very slowly.
Did you realise: our coffee packs are always 250 grams, not 225 grams as is often the case with mass market coffee.
