Elixir Espresso

Now in our guest grinder! The magical Elixir Espresso from London based Alchemy Coffee.

Boasting notes of pineapple, lime, and almond, this espresso blend packs a spellbinding punch.

"Our new Elixir blend, comprises 50% Guatemala Entre Volcanes (washed process), 25% Costa Rica El Abuelo (red honey process) and 25% Guatemala San Sebastian (natural process)."

Guatemala is an incredibly versatile coffee, and Alchemy have roasted it light to highlight its fruit character, which is very orangey and clean. El Abuelo brings lots of red berry and stone fruit flavours while San Sebastian, also from Antigua, Guatemala, provides a classic natural dark fruit edge, with a lingering cacao finish, as well as a host of brighter notes including a dominant pineapple flavour.

Alchemy are roasters based in South London with a café on Cnr Carter Lane & Ludgate Broadway, EC4V 6DU. Open Mon- Fri 7.00 - 16.30, roastery by appointment.



We'll share details on our featured guest espresso (as and when it changes)... so why not pop to the cafe and try it yourself!
