ABOUT THIS FILTER COFFEE
Bright, juicy notes of lemon citrus, florals, and tropical berry sweetness.
Not the usual rich chocolates and caramels you would expect to find, but a delicious foray into a new style of coffee blend for us.
As the Specialty Coffee market develops, new doors open. Currently, we have blends which represent the origins of filter with roast profiles matching Southern Italy, Northern Italy, and Australia. Over the last few years, there has been the emergence of a new style of roasting and blending which has been spurred on by new wave roasters in Scandinavia.
Of particular note is a handful of Norwegian roasters who have based their filter styles on a roast profile that is much lighter than what was previously the norm. Higher acidity and brighter coffee profiles became commonplace in “3rd wave”speciality coffee as a result of the success of the Scandinavian trailblazers. Blade Runner blend is our tribute to this exciting movement.
Our innovation team and roasters have collaborated on a 12-month project to develop this Nordic style coffee blend which offers an ultra-bright and juicy result. The coffees used in the blend are brighter Kenyan and Ethiopian with a touch of natural processed coffee to elevate the fruity notes.
We are having a great time running it through our espresso machines and as a filter brew in our stores as well. We hope you enjoy tasting this Scandinavian inspired coffee blend.
