Castlehill Blend

Castlehill Blend

Stand at very nearly any point in the city of Edinburgh Scotland and you'll see a castle that utterly dominates the sky. The city is known for this castle as it's stood, in part,  since the 2nd century. Being completely destroyed and rebuilt before coffee was first known to make it's way from Ethiopia to Yemen, it's certainly an impressive sight to take in.

Stand at very nearly any point in the city of Edinburgh Scotland and you'll see a castle that utterly dominates the sky. The city is known for this castle as it's stood, in part,  since the 2nd century. Being completely destroyed and rebuilt before coffee was first known to make it's way from Ethiopia to Yemen, it's certainly an impressive sight to take in. Just outside of the gates of this castle is a street called Castlehill which makes up the first part of the Royal Mile depending on where you start. When it came time for us to create a blend we thought what better names to use than the ones that make up where we get our name from. Photo's seen of the street and the Castle I took while there on the old iPhone 2g.

We designed this coffee with the intent that it would be approachable to almost any coffee drinker but more geared towards ones that like darker roast.  One that's familiar yet a little different than what you might have had if you've only had the really dark roasts. While nothing is too dominating, there's a certain "strong" aspect due to it being what I would call a french roast. Nuts and Chocolate (due to the heavier roasting) are what you should get. As espresso this one is chocolate all the way and one we use regularly for shots but it might not be the most nuanced.

Coffee Origin: South America + Africa
