From New Zealand we have X-blend beans from Havana Coffee Works.
The packaging is fairly minimal with little details on the beans that make up this fine blend. As a result I really had no idea what to expect.
Clearly with something from New Zealand the obvious thing to do is make a Flat white and see how it works with milk.
As you’d probably expect this coffee sings when made in this way. There’s an initial brown sugar/caramel sweetness followed by bursts of cocoa/chocolate flavours with a hint of roasted nuts with a pleasing mouthfeel. Simply delicious. This is the kind of brew that you could keep drinking all day until you’re bouncing off the ceiling.
