The Daily Blend’s flavour profile is crafted with approachability and versatility in mind, created for all-day drinking and for perfect expression in milk. To achieve this, our Head of Coffee selects fresh, in-season lots from around the globe, combining their unique flavour elements to construct the Daily’s signature profile of dark chocolate, chewy praline, and warm spices. Before it winds up in your cup, each component is rigorously tested through a series of blind tasting sessions, where our buyers, roasters, and quality control team ensure that consistency and quality meet our exacting standards for a delicious brew.
Our latest version of the Daily Blend introduces a new producer relationship for Caravan: Mujeres de San Antonio, a group of eight female producers all located near the town of San Antonio Huista, in the department of Huehuetenango, Guatemala. This coffee's story started over a year ago, through conversations between our Andrea Otte, our Head of Coffee and Nadine Rasch, the founder of Primavera, our Guatemalan import partner. Andrea and Nadine wanted to find a way to further support female coffee producers through larger coffee purchases, not only through our single origin offerings.
The foundation of the Daily Blend hails from Brazil, via a blend of farms in the Mantiqueira de Minas region. This region has some of the highest altitudes in southern Brazil, making for exceptionally sweet and clean coffees. Supporting flavours of nougat and spice come from the Sumatra Blue Toba, grown on the slopes of Lake Toba, the largest volcanic lake in the world.

It is worth noting that when brewing as an espresso this blend is extremely forgiving and works well with a variety of doses and extraction times. A good starting point when dialling in a recipe is 19g ground coffee, extracted over 27-33 seconds, to produce 38-40g of espresso.
