3 espresso blends featuring our own sundried ‘naturals’. Grown organically on Zentvelds coffee farm. ‘Naturals’ impart rounded richness into an espresso coffee. A fine introduction to our fuller bodied espresso blends.
Each blend features Zentveld’s Estate sundried ‘natural’ coffee.
What do we mean by that? Well, it’s when the ripe coffee fruit are allowed to over-ripen, and they shrivel up naturally on the tree. Rather like raisins or prunes – when allowed to dry ‘naturally, the fruit becomes more intense, and imparts more nuanced and well-rounded richness – a bit of backbone to the coffee! The acidity drops in the dried fruit – so it’s less of the fresh fruit notes, more of the dried fruit richness within the coffee bean, ready to be unlocked through our roasting process. We like to add naturals to blends aimed for espresso coffee. Espresso extraction draws out the acidity. So to start with less acidity naturally in the bean is often pleasing to the espresso drinker, with it’s rounded richness imparting a fuller espresso experience. Balanced with fully ‘washed’ coffees (fresh ripe red fruit) – from our estate or others, and perhaps adding 2 or 3 roast levels; allows our Roast Mistress to offer up a range of coffee experiences; each with their own nuances and interest.
Each one of these blends showcases our Zentveld estate ‘naturals’.
