Dark Horse Espresso Blend Coffee

Our house espresso blend changes components seasonally. Our goal is to make an espresso that is firstly a building block for a wonderful milk based espresso beverage, as well as interesting and complex on its own.

Don Claudio is produced in the surrounding hills of the Chirripó Mountain, the highest in Costa Rica, where the soil is rich, and the rainfall abundant. The ripe coffee cherries are picked and dried without removal of the fruit skin or pulp, before being milled. This takes time, but the rewards are vibrant, stone-fruit rich and floral tasting coffees.

Tolima is a coffee with exceptional brightness, balanced body and sweet, clean citrus and toasted pecan notes. Coffee from the Tolima region competes with cocoa for popularity among farmers in this remote mountainous region, where the microclimate and careful processing result in a balanced coffee with a sweet prolonged aftertaste.

  • Blend - 75% Costa Rica Don Claudio, 25% Colombia Tolima
  • Process - Washed
  • Notes - Milk Chocolate, Caramel, Cherry & Hazelnuts

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.
