EQ v8 Espresso Blend – WINTER WARMER WITH A TWIST
Taken from the idea of a audio equaliser on an old-fashioned amplifier – the key to this blend is balance. A deliciously well rounded cup with great body, pronounced acidity & above all, BIG sweetness. This is our 8th version of the seasonal ‘EQ Espresso Blend’ and is always roasted from the freshest crops available at the time of year.
The winter blend sees the arrival of the new crop Colombians’ along with some delicious African coffees. We’ve decided to stick to a three bean format once again as we’ve found that it helps create complexity in the cup… Something we enjoy in our most refined espressos. This is not a conventional approach to espresso blending as we look to utilise brighter, sweeter & more characterful coffees than you might find elsewhere. Super clean but controlled lime zest acidity, big golden syrup-like mouthful & sweetness with notes of poached pears & a buttery caramel finish.
