We’ve launched the Redemption Roasters taster kit; a great gift for the people in your life who really should be drinking our coffee!
What’s inside? We’ve chosen our 2 house classics; as our most popular coffees, they are the perfect introduction to what we do.
1x 250g Aylesbury Espresso – This is our staple espresso blend, named for our original roastery site. The components rotate seasonally to ensure freshness, variety and quality, but they are always selected to maintain a consistent profile that is easy to dial in and to perform well with or without milk.
The current component mix presents a flavour profile like a crumble or cobbler, with crisp apple- or pear-like acidity at the front, syrupy apricot, blackberry and blackcurrant flavours through the middle, and a mildly biscuity aftertaste. Underlying this is a creamy, sweetly nutty praline and milk chocolate base, giving the blend the quality of a delicious dessert.
1x 250g The Mount Filter blend – In this latest version, we have sourced two incredible lots from two different continents which remarkably displayed similar complex and high-quality flavour profiles.
The first component is from Los Naranjos, a farm in Urrao, Antioquia, Colombia. The farm is run by Elkin Raúl Urrego, who has produced this lot consisting of both the classic Caturra variety, and Chiroso, which won this year’s Cup of Excellence competition in Colombia – the cup displayed wonderful floral notes like tea-rose, with an intense berry sweetness, and a delicate silky mouthfeel. The second element is sourced from the Boji Washing Station in Kochere, Ethiopia, which services 500 local smallholder producers. Kochere borders the Yirgacheffe region, famous for producing world-class coffees, and the lot we have selected here is no exception – bright lemon acidity, blackcurrants, and raspberries, with some jasmine in there too!
