Upstart Blend

Upstart Blend


A lively blend, nicely balanced, accented by the concentrated, robust flavour of Kenya peaberry. Hints of passion fruit, blueberry and almond. Lingering finish.

Not much has changed since we introduced this blend in 2008, and it remains to be our most popular seller. As a black coffee, the combination of Colombia excelso and Kenya brings out a more fruity character, whereas as a white coffee, Guatemala supports the sweet, maltiness of the Kenya peaberry. A tasty all-rounder suited for all brewing methods.
