This blend has been created in the style of a more traditional espresso blend to work perfectly with milk based drinks. We have combined coffees from three origins – Brazil, El Salvador & Sumatra – to produce a smooth and full bodied coffee with great depth of flavour – as espresso, you should expect intense chocolate and caramel with a touch of orange on the finish. In milk, this coffee is fantastically sweet with notes of chocolate and praline.
The Dark Arches blend currently comprises of the following coffees:40% Brazil, Uva varietal, natural process40% El Salvador, Bourbon varietal, washed process20% Sumatra, Typica & P88 varietals, semi-washed ‘giling basah’ process
Flavours: Dark Chocolate | Caramel | Hazelnut
El Salvador Finca Bonanza
Finca Bonanza is situated in the Santa Ana region on the foothills of the Ilamatepec Volcano. It is owned by a great friend of ours and an award winning farmer, Joe Molina. Joe is one of the most knowledgeable coffee farmers around and invests a lot of time in his farm. He is dedicated to coffee, particularly its genetics and possibilities of cross breeding to improve flavour. For the last two years, he has been growing a potentially disease resistant varietal nicknamed ‘Old Chap’ (a nod to his love of traditional English phrases!) which he has great hopes for in safeguarding the future of his farm against ‘Roya’ (leaf rust) – a disease which is sweeping across Latin American coffee farms, greatly affecting yield.
