This is a combination of specially selected high quality Arabica coffee beans, blended and freshly roasted (medium roast) to achieve the sought-after taste profile of Fruit & Nut Chocolate.
This blend includes the following coffees:
Bourbon beans from Fina San Antonio estate, San Antonio, El Salvador. Washed, 1800-2000m.
Caturra beans from Medellin, Colombia. Fully Washed, 1700-2000m.
Red Catuai beans from Cachoeira farm, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Natural. 1100m.
Cauvery (Catimor) eans from Mysore, India. Natural. 1000-2000m.
In case you don't know the background, Kev from coffeeblog.co.uk (that's me) decided to create The Coffeeworks, by asking coffeeblog readers what they're looking for in their coffee beans, and then giving them exactly that.
This wasn't only about taste, but of course taste was an important question, and one of the most commonly described favourite taste notes in coffee, was fruit & nut chocolate. So this medium roast blend of high quality Arabica coffee beans was chosen for this reason.
