Kaffa Forest Estate, Ethiopia – This full bodied coffee from Limu adds chocolate and honey flavours, sweetness and balance.
The Hay is an espresso blend that we originally developed to serve at our regular market stalls and at pop-ups at food festivals and events.
Each of the blend ingredients are roasted separately and then blended. It’s a fairly traditional blend style based around a great coffee from Brazil and then augmented by other coffees designed to bring sweetness and some fruit to the espresso. Created using speciality coffees from fantastic farms which are roasted to deliver a rich and intense flavour that cuts through milk perfectly to create great lattes and flat whites. The blend works great as a straight-up espresso too.
Ideal for espresso or a more traditional filter or aeropress (lots of chocolate notes with good body and great sweetness).
