George Street Blend Coffee

Recommended for espresso. Certified organic by the Soil Association, the George St. blend is our go-to house coffee. Strong enough to shine through milk, George St. is carefully roasted to highlight the coffee’s robust, natural flavours while also pushing the coffee to have a deep sweetness that helps create a syrupy body. This version of our mainstay blend was created by combining two coffees from Latin America: the Colombian coffee Los Vascos and the Peruvian San Fernando. Together, they create a crowd-pleasing combination of sweetness and strength.

Los Vascos is a cooperative of producers who work together under the name ASOTBILBAO. Each of them have small farms that are lush with coffee trees and nature reserves – a combination that makes the area look more like jungle than farmland. The cool weather of this mountainous region creates a terroir that is known for its deep caramel sweetness and light fruitiness.

The Peruvian San Fernando comes from two cooperatives in Cusco. The history of cooperatives in Peru goes back decades, and their collaborative nature is central to what makes Peru one of coffee’s most crowd-pleasing and reliable origins. The Peru coffee profile is all about balance and light sweetness, and San Fernando is all that and more: a calm acidity supports the lightly fruity flavours with a gentle chocolate note throughout.

    A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

    Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
    ...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
