Hickling Espresso Blend

(6 customer reviews)

Our Hickling Espresso is a little different.

We took a natural process Brazil and blended it post-roast with a sweet, juicy Guatemala.

The result is a flavour explosion, showcasing the potential of two exceptional coffees.

Give it a whirl, it’s tasty as filter or espresso.

About the coffee

Blending coffees together after roasting is interesting because it allows us to profile each component separately. Our Hickling Espresso is a base of natural process Brazilian speciality coffee roasted on a medium-dark profile, blended post-roast with a light-medium roast Guatemala. The resulting characteristics are juicy, apple acidity from the Guatemala, over a thick and sweet caramel base.

As espresso, we’re looking for a rich, mahogany-coloured start, going to a golden syrup at the 25 second mark. Ratio wise, we’d use 16 to 18 grams into 55 to 60ml of water. Play around, over-extracting can happen quickly, so if you’re losing the apple notes, cut the shot a little shorter.

    An amazing post roast combination of 2 coffee beans, creates a wonderful “sweet & sour” tastes on the tongue. A great shot to start the day or after your evening meal, enjoy!
