We are huge fans of African coffee at Carvetii and it is very likely that our espresso blend will contain a coffee from Africa. We really enjoy the fruity flavours, the citrus bursts and the often challenging flavours which can accompany an African coffee, particularly if it is a natural processed one.
We have to concede, however, that there is also room for a more familiar coffee. Something easy drinking with which to sit back and relax; maybe something for a chill our Sunday morning. We chose Finca El Parasío for this very reason.
This coffee has a delicate acidity and front end flavours of butter toffee. We were very taken by the sweetness in the cup, particularly as it cools. There is a wonderful lingering aftertaste which reminded us of a combination of caramel and chocolate.
This coffee is currently available to buy on our website.
