Yes folks we've gone a little off-piste with our new Espresso Blend. It is based on two new coffees to give something smooth and balanced that suits various brewing styles. We only sourced a small amount of each coffee and hence didn't feel it warranted the full integer label, hence CH8.5. It won't be around for long.

We call it an 'Espresso Blend' but this is not a coffee you can only use for Espresso drinks. It's a versatile coffee that is super tasty brewed as a Cafetiere or Aeropress but equally as the Espresso base to your preferred beverage such as a Flat White or Americano.

The main difference in terms of roasting style for the CH blends is the slightly longer development and slightly higher drop (end) temperature that we take it to in the roaster. Typically more delicate single-origins would be developed under 16-18% DTR (Development Time Ratio) and dropped at under 196C, as opposed to coffees in this blend which would have a 187-22% DTR and a slightly higher drop temperature. Not massive differences but those extra few percent and extra few degrees can enable the sugars and body to develop further.
