This is our famous foursome Brazil Ethiopia, India and Papua New Guinea are roasted together to achieve a very zesty result. Tough to make, great to take.
Complex and sophisticated this is an incredible blend of four nation’s coffees. Because each bean roasts at a different rate, our roasters need to give this blend X-tra attention. It is one of the most challenging coffees we roast. While X-Rated brews well through espresso and stovetops, its floral notes and bright, silky palate allow it really to shine through plungers, filters and syphons.
The Body & Brightness Profiles:
When you first taste a coffee, you should first assess its body or mouth feel and also just how acidic or bright it is. You may like a coffee that has a whole lot of body but with low acidity. Or you may like a mellower mouth feel but a brighter acidity. It really is a personal preference, there is no right or wrong.
X-Rated has medium body and a medium brightness.
The Flavour Profiles:
What sets each individual coffee apart will be the flavours of what we call the “tasting notes”. The tasting notes are many and varied ranging from floral to nutty, spicy to berry, chocolaty to citrusy, just to name a few. These flavours make each coffee very different and so special. Where the coffee is grown, climate, elevation, soil type and harvesting techniques will all impact on the flavour so unique to each coffee.
X-Rated releases roast almond and malt flavours.
