Hear what the Great Taste Judges had to say –
“A really good example of a light roast that has developed with lots of body and a great finish. This begins with just the right acidity without any sourness. Light and breezy with layers of flavour that just keep changing into something else: cranberries, walnuts, chocolate. Really clean, well-balanced and evidences clever blending.” – 2 star (2019)
Table 1 – “A good even roast. Light, full, round, deep, creamy and a great balance. Berry notes with hints of dark chocolate which were pleasing. Long, balanced finish which we enjoyed!” Table 2 – “A good heavy creama. There is a spicy fruitiness with a degree of buttery biscuit. The balance is well judged with the characteristics of the different beans all playing a complex part. A coffee for all seasons to satisy the true coffee aficionado.” – 2 star (2018)
“An excellent, brilliantly made coffee” – 2 star (2017)
“Lovely bright acidity to this espresso and a finish of toasted chocolate” – 1 star (2016)
