Square Mile, SweetShop, Espresso beans - 350g
The idea behind our Sweetshop blend is simple: combine sweet and characterful coffee to create a fun, wildly complex and fruit-driven espresso.
This isn’t about balance and it certainly isn’t about tradition. This is about cramming as much fruit and fun into the cup as possible. We want an espresso that doesn’t taste like anything else.
For those of us in the northern hemisphere, the days are longer, spring is on the horizon, and it’s Rwanda season! A little different to anything we’ve done before, this iteration is a blend of two different lots, from the same washing station.
Influenced by nuances in typography, microclimate, tree location, and harvest times, this blend was inspired by how radically different these coffees are in flavour and structure despite coming from the same area and mill.
An eight on the Sweetshop Richter scale, Gatare 626 bursts with bright acids oozing flavours of red berries, currants, and pineapple notes. With the rounder, caramel sweetness, creamy structure and soft malic acids, Gatare 657 anchors the blend with its depth. Thrilled at how they came together, get ready for punchy, vibrant and pitch- perfect iteration of Sweetshop. Here is to Spring!
