Santa Lucia, Christmas Blend
Colombia, Kenya and Mexico
These are naturally processed coffees from Mexico and Colombia for body, spice, dried fruit flavours and a boozy finish.
There’s also some washed Kenya in there for bright, berry notes.
The natural process coffees bring sweetness, body and booziness to the blend, with the washed coffees bringing the brightness, orange and berry flavours.
This can make a great espresso as a base for flat whites or lattes, but my favourite way to enjoy this coffee is brewed as a filter coffee.
Enjoyed black, it makes me think of Christmas, and when I feel REALLY decadent, a dollop of Brandy cream stirred in, sitting in front of the fire with the fairy lights twinkling and Bing Crosby on the playlist is the perfect way to close out the day.
And with the addition of a sherry cask whisky, this is a divine Irish coffee too…
