Spotlight on the floral one... Bloom
Welcome to our Spotlight series, where we are taking the time to introduce you more closely to our range of independent specialty coffees, all of which are hand-roasted in small batches in Yorkshire to ensure ultimate freshness and a truly unique drinking experience. This time, it’s the turn of our sweetest blend, Bloom, or as we like to call it, the floral one...
Our multi-origin Bloom blend is the sweeter, more innocent sister to our best-selling Fortuna. It contains a delicate balance of beans from El Salvador, Brazil and Ethiopia; the latter really shine and bring the unique fruitiness to the palate. The fragrant floral notes make it perfect for an afternoon pick me up, and with the days getting darker and the fact we are all staying at home, we may be needing an afternoon brew more and more.
With England back under lockdown for the next few weeks, we know it’s more important than ever to be able to brew the perfect coffee at home. When using our Bloom blend, we would recommend using a filter or drip method, such as a V60 Coffee Dripper. If these words mean nothing to you, don’t fret! Read on to learn more about this handy piece of equipment which will help to get the most out of Bloom’s clean, light taste in your own kitchen.
The V60 Dripper Cup designed by Hario, a Japanese design company with a passion for coffee, is a cheap and cheerful way to elevate your brewing game. It's named after the 60° angle of the cone which is where you brew the ground beans. The angle cone design allows the water to flow over the beans longer when poured on top, maximising water to bean contact and therefore maximising the flavour. The ribbing on the inside of the cup also allows air to escape, making more room for ground expansion, and therefore, yep, you guessed it, more flavour.
If you like the sound of this dynamic duo, you can purchase our Bloom blend and a ceramic V60 Dripper cup and 100x filter papers as part of our one of our Brewing Equipment Bundles; the perfect kit which has everything you need to kickstart your Divine Coffee love affair, or even as a present for a fellow coffee addict.
However you choose to prepare, we’d suggest serving Bloom black as the addition to milk may obscure some of the more delicate flavours of this floral blend.
