Altitude - House Blend
Taste Notes: caramel, red berry, clementine
Our flagship blend Altitude uses a selection of fresh crop single origins. The high proportion of natural-processed coffee creates its characteristic boozy qualities. A lighter roast style ensures fine, crisp acidity and sweetness.
Altitude Blend is made up of Brazilian, Rwandan and Ethiopian coffees, however these will vary throughout the year to ensure we are using as fresh a harvest as possible. The beans are roasted in batches and it takes about 15 minutes to reach the desired 'drop' temperature for this blend of 206 degrees.
Like grapes in wine, coffee beans come in many varietals or cultivars each with their own unique characteristics. In this blend we primally use a cultivar called Bourbon, an early mutation of the more ubiquitous Typica strain that is prized for its excellent flavour. However it does produce lower yields and is susceptible coffee leaf rust- for this reason it commands a high price.
