Mill Town - Dark roast
Taste Notes: cacao, molasses, fudge
“This classic medium-dark roasted coffee has full-bodied, smooth flavours. Hand-crafted on our cast iron coffee roaster at our HQ, in Wellington’s historic Victorian wool mill.
Mill Town Blend is made up of Brazilian and Colombian 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 216 degrees.
Like grapes in wine, coffee beans come in many varietals or cultivars each with their own unique characteristics. In this blend we primarily use a cultivar called Mundo Novo, a hybrid of a natural mutation that took place in East Timor, and an Ethiopian strain. The result is a coffee that is resistant to leaf rust, giving farmers more security.
