Colombian crowdpleaser in the house! The ultimate representative of a 'comfort' offering - classy and easy to brew using a variety of methods.

In the cup, you can expect milk chocolate and raisins with a hint of brown sugar and a creamy body. Gentle papaya acidity makes it a great filter brew, meanwhile in espresso you get all the chocolate goodness. Combined with milk this coffee creates a very comforting beverage, which is super easy to drink.

Gorgeous coffee

This one hits all my favourite notes. It’s smooth and rounded with a fruitcake richness dusted with cocoa.

A comforting brew

It's a very good, go-to, Colombian coffee. Won't blow your socks off with a new taste sensation but then again I don't want that with my morning coffee. I'll get this again, love the chocolate-ness.
