A blend of three coffees. The two Brazilian coffees bring sweetness and toasted cereal notes. They are pre blended and then post blended with a rich, fruity Guatemala.
Works superbly as an espresso and at its very best with just a small amount of milk.
Taste Note: It’s mega sweet with a round mouthfeel and some doughy notes mixed with heavy dried fruit. The Guatemala adds fruit and body.
We like: the sweetness in tight shots and the butterybody. Stunning with small volumes of milk

Hand Roasted Coffee
All Matthew Algie coffee is ethically sourced and traceable, but what makes our hand-roasted coffees so exceptional is the direct sourcing of the most outstanding one-off microlots, often an entire crop, from individual farmers. Seasonality is a major factor in the selection process, with only the freshest green beans making the cut.
Then there's the hand roasting in the Italian 'Vittoria' traditional drum roaster - in batches of just 15-25kg. With decades of experience, we know how to develop the perfect flavour during the roasting process and how to preserve the integrity and freshness of the roasted beans right up until the moment the coffee is brewed.
The result? Each hand roasted microlot is unique, distinctive and memorable.
We change our hand-roasted offering regularly. Once a microlot is gone, it's gone. For more information on matthew Algie, or to stay updated with the latest microlots, please visit www.matthewalgie.com, where you can also join our mailing list.
