Time for something new. CH9 is our new blend created for easy brewing and a smooth rounded flavour profile. 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 I take it to in the roaster.  Not massive differences but those extra few seconds and extra few degrees can enable the sugars and body to develop further.

Taste Notes:

The Honduran gives the creamy milk chocolate body and the Guatemalan the juicy cherry fruit, finally topped off with the washed Yirgacheffe to add some elegant and sweet florals.
