 Stronghold is Origin's celebration of the incredible coffees they source from Brazil and the long-standing direct trade partners that they've established there. The roast profile for Stronghold creates a darker, more traditional roast than our other blends.

To build this blend, Origin drew on three of their trusted long-term partners. Ricardo Barbosa is our go-to when we want to add bass toned richness. For dark sugar sweetness and chocolate notes, they then look to Virgulino Muniz’ crops. São João – courtesy of Osvaldo Bachião – completes the blend with an added layer of complexity. This coffee is clean and sweet with flavours of dark sugar and chocolate. Stronghold is built to please those that want a simple, easy and intense cup. A coffee that is sweet but with no acidity.
