Kicker Espresso Blend Mk3 2015
33.3% Ethiopia Shakiso Abyot Boru Washed
33.3% Nicaragua Finca Limoncillo Washed Longberry
33.4% Nicaragua Finca La Escondida Washed Catuai
Following on from the Jailbreak Espresso Blend, the plan is to build a range of espresso blends along a similar line but all with very different goals and ideals.
This particular one is a super premium, super delicious, challenging, difficult blend that sings like an angel when it is right.
This blend may need a machine and a level of precision to get exactly right, so it's not for the uninitiated, and certainly not for the faint hearted. It will take work to nail it just right, but when you do it is an amazing blend.
When it is right expect a bright espresso with sweetness and substance, with sherbet lemons and oranges, and a vibrant effervescence that works super well in espresso and cuts through the milk in a pleasing way. A grown-up coffee blend.
As always we are proud to share the ingredients with you, no secrets here...

These are premium beans which on their own are amazing single origin coffees, but as a blend bring sweetness, acidity, body, and all around deliciousness. In the cup; oranges, sherbet, lemonade: difficult. Roasted just into the first pops of second crack, it's a shade lighter than our Jailbreak blend, but this is where, for us, the coffees are at their best.
