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. Amidst this incredible diversity, there's a constant that brings a sense of cohesiveness to the coffeelands—the idyllic rural towns. These historic gems, with their brightly painted houses, are nestled along cobbled streets that seem to tell stories of their own.

Juicy autumnal berry, stone fruit and butterscotch flavours shine through in this latest version that combines a newly sourced Nicaraguan coffee with our perennial favourite Colombian coffee. Plum, cherry and red berry fruit quality come in abundance from coffee grown on the Bethania farm in Nicaragua’s Nueva Segovia region.Owned by Martha Lucía Albir Sotomayor and her family Bethania lies deep in the forested mountains of Nueva Segovia and takes its name from a place known for tranquillity and meditation. Coffee thrives in this part of the world and a drier micro- climate around the area has helped the farm move from washed processed coffees to delicious fruit-forward natural process micro-lots.

The big autumnal stone fruit notes in Bethiania meld deliciously with red berry notes. These flavours combined with a positive sweetness, undertones of malt loaf
and a dense syrupy finish to set the main foundation of Cobblestone.

Second up is the ever-popular La Virgen from the Grupo Asociativo Villa Esperanza producer collective in Colombia's Huila region. This coffee is a true gem, boasting flavours reminiscent of brown sugar, orange citrus, stewed fruit, and milk chocolate. Its high elevation growth adds structure, flavour, and complexity to the blend, elevating it to new heights. To ensure that all the caramel and fruit flavours take centre stage in the final product, we roast both coffees separately on their own medium roast profiles before blending.

This approach preserves the nuances of each coffee ready for blending and brewing. When making Cobblestone at home look for a pronounced sweetness and flavours of caramel, strawberry, roasted almond and orange citrus. if you're a fan of milk-based drinks, you'e in for a treat. Cobblestone pairs beautifully with milk, resulting in a lighter-style cappuccino or latte. Notes of toffee, milk chocolate and a red berry note come through with supreme balance.

The blend is primarily designed for espresso but will work in other brew methods. We've put together some brew recipes with supporting tasting notes for different types of coffee maker to start you off. Please use these as a guide only:
