Getting product details...

From Artisan Roast:

Two delicious Latin coffees combine in this seasonal espresso blend inspired by the cobbled streets of rural Latin America. Medium bodied, laden with caramel sweetness, berry fruit flavours and a roasted almond finish.

Cobblestone is a fresh, juicy espresso blend with a medium body and harmonious balance of caramel sweetness with bright citrus acidity. It's inspired by the beauty and diversity of Latin America, the ever changing landscapes, cultures and people, the seemingly endless range of coffee flavours to be found throughout the region, and of course Latin vibrance. Throughout this diversity a constant that harmonises the coffeelands bringing a sense of cohesiveness to the region are idyllic rural towns, draped in history with brightly painted houses that line ever present cobbled streets.

Version two point five of Cobblestone brings together three very unique coffees together. First up is a super sweet fruit driven red honey processed coffee from Rolando Ramirez Moreno's farm Montes Urales in Ahuachapan, El Salvador This is a new coffee to Artisan Roast following our sourcing trip to El Salvador. Second is the long term Cobblestone component, Colombia - this time from Jaiber Joven Mercia, a small producer in Guadeloupe, Huila. Jaiber's coffee delivers classic caramel and orange citrus like qualities to the blend, along with a molasses like sweetness. This version of the blend also includes a small proportion of what has become a real Artisan favourite, Bella Aurora from Nicaragua. With a fuller espresso focused roast Bella Aurora brings an underlying hint of almond and milk chocolate to the blend.

When developing the blend it was important to focus on caramel as the centre point of the profile so the roasts of both coffees have been kept pretty light before blending after roasting. This allows the rich dense caramel notes, orange citrus and roasted almond flavours of La Virgen to come through without any roast flavours. These characteristics sit harmoniously with the pronounced sweetness, and flavours of milk chocolate, dried fruit and red berries of the Montes Urales. The low acidity and moreish, dense mouthfeel of Montes Urales bring further depth and complexity to the blend.

Cobblestone takes milk very well and delivers a lighter style of cappuccino or latte where toffee, milk chocolate and a little redcurrant come through with supreme balance.
