“City Blend – Seasonal Project” is our hunt for the elusive “unicorn” that is a magnificent all-rounder. Balanced and sweet enough for a nube, layered and complex enough for a connoisseur, City Blend delivers in every brewing method. City Blend adds the melody that keeps you in step. Our seasonal projects use fresh crops of specialty grade beans and may be a blend or single bean depending on the seasons produce.
Produced at the el Puente mill, that services 90 family farms, the mill derives its name after the nearby footbridge. Like its name, the project creates a local bridge by which small producers are able to come together and produce exceptional quality coffees, earning them premium prices. Happy farmers, and happy customers. Now as a roaster, we can say that the price is worth every cent. The sweet syrupy butterscotch notes from this bean hooked me on the first hit. Or cup, or whatever. Why, just this weekend I was locked in a room trembling like a leaf and begging my wife to give me just one last aeropress of this delicious coffee. Just…..one….more… and then I can stop. Locking me up seemed excessive. I mean, I could stop drinking our stock anytime I wanted to, its just that im not quiet ready. Flavour notes on its own: Espresso – raisins, lemon rind, stone fruit. In the milk – butterscotch, shortbread, caramel.
Raisins, juicy stone fruit, toasted macadamia finish. Very balanced and very sweet.
Shortbread, caramel, butterscotch, oats, toasted nuts and alpaca knit blankies.
We suggest a 1:2 ratio, (18 gm for 36 gm espresso ) and a 27 to 32 second extraction.
