Really Great With Milk
The primary constituent of this Special is a beautiful Samba coffee from Brazil, which we select for its great flavour and its full body. The beans are slightly darker than many Brazilian beans and they definitely have more body than Daterra or Santos Bourbons. We like this; it gives character to the coffee. Coffee needs body and bite and our Bossa Nova Blonde has enough caffeine to keep you moving all day long but not enough to give you the shakes if you overdo it. Ethiopian, Guatemalan and Indonesian origins round out the flavour and a handful of a hard-to-roast and rarely found Hondurans finish out the profile. These beans are hard-to-roast and difficult to get right so most roasters leave them alone. Not us. We know that in the right hands they can deliver flavour notes you simply won’t get anywhere else. If you have the skill and the patience, they’re almost like a secret weapon.
