For a long time it has been taken for granted that high-quality coffee must be 100% Arabica varietal.
Times have changed. Whilst Robusta has traditionally been destined for (dare I say it) the ‘instant coffee’ market, there is a new wave of specialty Robusta that we are keen to embrace. Not least due to its resilience in thriving in conditions where Arabica cannot, but also because, like everything, if treated with care, love and respect along its journey, the results are surprisingly good.
We invite you to try our new signature blend ‘Steel Horse’.
50% specialty Robusta from the Pô Kô Fairtrade co-operative in Vietnam
50% our house brew from the Vinhal estate that we all know and love.
Expect a little extra kick from the Robusta, very low acidity and a thick crema, with rye and ridiculous nutty notes. A traditional Italian espresso shot in our view.
