Smokey Bird

Gracing our guest grinder this month is the Smokey Bird Espresso Blend from the guys at Pelicano Roastery in Brighton.

This brilliant seasonal blend of Colombian, Honduran, and Ethiopian origin offers a blinding caffenation punch right in the taste buds. Expect caramel, citrus, and some cheeky floral highlights in the espresso, or smooth and soothing sweetness with milk.

Smokey bird boasts smoked cocoa nibs from Latin america & jazzy floral notes from Africa

Pelicano Roastery describe themselves as the 'New kids on the block', a foundling roastery found on 28 Sydney street in Brighton. They sent us a bag in the post to try... we liked it so much it's now our guest espresso. Simple as. Got a brew you'd like us to try? Pop it in the post: 49 Old Street, EC1V 9HX.

We'll post a little piece about the featured guest espresso (as and when it changes) in our grinder... come to the cafe and try it yourself, yeah?
