From Artisan Roast:

Cobblestone is a fresh, juicy espresso blend with a medium body and harmonious balance of caramel sweetness, underlying berry notes and a 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 coffee lands 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 of 2021 revisits one the blends most loved versions of 2020 - a luscious tropical fruit forward and caramel approach to the blend and sourced completely from Colombia. Bringing a vibrant tropical fruit base to the blend the Potosi farm in Colombia’s southern Cauca region. Potosi is one of a group of small farms owned by Rigoberto and Luis Herrera in the Valle de Cauca, and this natural processed Colombia cultivar showcases their complete approach to quality.

Fruit forward and bursting with notes of ripe pineapple, mango and banana, Potosi also brings strawberry and a positive booziness along with a dense creamy finish to Cobblestone.

Second is our ever popular ‘La Virgen’ from the Grupo Asociativo Villa Esperanza group of producers in Colombia's Huila region. It’s a coffee full of brown sugar, orange citrus and milk chocolate like flavours. Subtle undertones of stewed apple and cranberry add further complexity. This coffee is a high grown gem and adds structure, flavour and complexity to the blend.

This caramel like quality forms the centre point of the blend so we roast both coffees separately on a medium to light roast profile before blending after roasting. This allows the rich dense sugar browning and fruit like flavours of both the La Virgen and Potosi to come through without any roast flavours. When brewed look for a pronounced sweetness and flavours of caramel, tropical fruit, strawberry and orange citrus. Cobblestone takes milk very well and delivers a lighter style of cappuccino or latte where toffee, milk chocolate and a red berry notes come through with supreme balance.
