Cedar's seasonal espresso blend is crafted to please most palates. It's a combination of coffees from origins that already have broad appeal, perfectly blended to hit the spot, whether that's black or in a milk-based drink. It makes a great introduction to Cedar, and would be a great choice for coffee businesses as well as home brewers.
Phaedon's tasting notes
I've been telling a joke (mostly in my head, to myself) about how Cedar's Seasonal Blend reminds me of its founders, Leigh & Winston. It's very easy to get on with. You could even call it easygoing.
Silly jokes aside, I have no doubt that this coffee is a crowd-pleaser. There's nothing loud or brash in it. It's not dark and roasty. It's not overly acidic, though it's also not in any way flabby. It's mellow, yet full-flavoured. It's balanced, sweet, nutty and even a little fruity. In short, this is a blend that most people will really enjoy.
It will of course shine in espresso, both black and for milk-based drinks, but you'll be pleasantly surprised at how it fairs in manual brews. Not only does it make a sensational moka pot, but I thoroughly enjoyed it in my siphon, Chemex, French press, AeroPress and even MoccaMaster.
The latest edition of this coffee which includes a bit of Cedar's much loved and relatively rare Timor Leste coffee adds a bit more fruit to the profile. Discerning palates may pick up a little stone fruit in combination with those sweet, nutty balanced flavours that were also there in the previous edition.
- Cup Profile: Balanced, smooth mouthfeel, notes of pecan nuts & milk chocolate.
This is our signature blend where we aim to achieve a consistent flavour profile that provides a good balance of sweetness and body. Roast profile suits espresso-based drinks with its toned down acidity and smooth mouthfeel. A perfect coffee for the morning and everyday use. We prefer using this coffee for brewers that exemplify full body and bold notes such as espresso, plunger and moka-pots. Coffee is seasonal so expect our components to change throughout the year but maintain a consistent flavour profile.
