MARKET BLEND ESPRESSO, SUMMER 2017
Sidama Chu Chu
Continuing on with this theme, Summertime in the UK sees the arrival of a selection of long awaited coffees from Central America and East Africa; all of which have been sourced through relationships that we have built over the past several years.
We’ve found this espresso to have a light, lingering sweetness and a vibrant, juicy acidity with just a hint of floral on the finish – perfect to enjoy during these warmer days and versatile enough to cut through milk or even to enjoy iced.
A starting ratio of 2:1 yields crisp, sweet, complex brews that are ideally suited to the warmer weather. We’ve been dialling in with a starting dose of 18g aiming for a 35 gm yield over a 34 seconds extraction; we have found that when paired with milk the cup is led by light stone fruit notes with a subtle jasmine finish!
