The 888 Blend is a fun story of accidental discovery leading to one of our most well know blends. I found this blend amongst a list of other designs from many years ago, shelved away after many cupping sessions and marked as incomplete.
After approching our Head Roaster at the time, we decided to give it another try, tweaking and testing it to get something that tasted amazing. We found that mixing a light and dark roast toegether achieved a unique profile from just roasting the blend all as one, with these results, we entered the 888 into the Golden Bean roasting competition in 2010.
Not expecting any particular result, mainly interested in the industry feedback, we instead were awarded with the gold medal in the milk-based catergory.
Fast forward a number of years and the 888 blend is still enjoyed by our numerous retail and wholesale customers, providing a rich dark chocolate aroma with a citrus sweet finish that really cuts through the milk.
Try this award winning blend and see for yourself why so many of our customers love it.
