Which blend shall I pick?
Too easy, ONE of each and you’re covered.
Our family sources raw coffee beans from renown small ethical growers from all over the world. These exclusive coffees are roasted and blended to develop a diverse range of flavours, complexity, strength, body and aromas suitable for all coffee makers, whether you use a plunger, filter or espresso.
Each blend has it’s unique identity and flavour, from strong BOLD & EARTHY in our Special Italian blend, Rich TOFFEE & FRUIT in The Original blend to Smooth MALT & CREAM in our famous Smooth Espresso blend.
I personally love the rich fruit like flavours and sweet butterscotch that our Original blend has. It’s my favourite as a piccolo. A.K.A. “The Adult Latté”.
If you like sweet lively coffees then go for Maria’s Choice our family favourite. RICH & NUTTY a great all rounder and Maria herself has been enjoying her blend daily in a plunger and filter for almost 40 years. It must have something in it???
The simplest way is pick one you find interesting and make it exactly how you’ve always been making your coffee, this way you’ll have a fair idea of the difference. I would also suggest to try it without milk and also in different types of beverages, piccolo, cappuccino, espresso or mocha. From there you’ll have a better understanding of its flavour against another one of our blends.
Be warned, once you try a few you’ll get a craving for a particular one. We have clients that have gone through our range of coffees and always purchase a few contrasting flavours.
There are times when all I crave is a traditional full bodied heavy earthy ristretto so I grind up our Special Italian. Another time I’m in a mood for a real lively sweet fruity espresso so I go The Original.
Still stuck, we’d love to help you, so send us an email or gives us a call. Our family has been helping people with their coffee since 1958 at mum and dads landmark Delicatessen – The Olympos.
