As the water got colder and the winds grew sharper, we soon started demanding more than just great taste from our post-swim coffee. We needed something with enough of a caffeine kick to get us moving again before our fingers and toes fell off and we needed something with an immediate burst of flavour to cut through the salt and get our taste buds working again. We also wanted a coffee we could drink either with milk or without, because some days heating up milk to bring in a flask is too much hassle and we need all the heat we can get so we never use cold milk after a swim.
Nothing delivers base strength and silky smoothness like strictly high grown Mandheling beans from Sumatra so this was a great starting point. We added some beautiful clean, bright, Yirgacheffe beans from Sidamo in Ethiopia bean to give the coffee more bite and to bring the flavour forward in the profile. A Segovian from Nicaragua complimented the length while adding some sweetness in the finish without crowding out the Mandheling. A final seven percent of our favourite Brazilian brought the whole thing home. It’s terrific coffee and it’s great anywhere.
