Taste The Synergy Of Flavours In Blended Coffees
Blend. And Snap. If you know, you know… alright, its a Legally Blonde reference and we’re not particularly proud of the fact we just made one. Anyway, lets talk blended speciality coffee. In capable hands, blending can lead to truly wonderful combinations, where the various features and strengths of a particular coffee are matched with another to create a synergy of flavours, a fusion to ignite the palate, an orgasmic taste sensation, some may say.
Coffee roasters also often favour blends in a bid to create consistency. Qualities like body and flavour can differ quite dramatically between harvests and coffee bean batches, and so blending is one way to ensure they are able to minimise the differences between each. Too often, however, we see speciality coffee blends that try to hide the negative qualities of certain coffee by combining it with another. And, that my friends is worse than our Legally Blonde reference. Way, way worse.
Fortunately for you, you can rely on our trusted team at GUSTATORY to steer you clear of all that and on to a path of coffee righteousness. Blend yourself happy with the GUSTATORY blended coffee box subscription, available one, two or three bag monthly for filter or espresso, as wholebeans or pre-ground. All subscriptions are dispatched every month's first Monday to ensure coffee freshness from all our UK and international coffee roasters (all subscribers are consolidated into the same dispatch period irrespective of payment cycles).
