GREAT COFFEE. HAND ROASTED. FOR EVERYONE.
I have a sage espresso machine which is great, but dialling it in can be a bit of a pain. With this roast however, it's so fruity and flavourful that even when it's not perfectly dialled in it's still delicious. I've tried so many roasts in my machine but never has one been so consistently great! Totally recommend.
Another outstanding product. Great flavour. Perfect to get your day started!
Dare I say it - this is our favourite in Alt’s current line up and we’ve tried them all! Heaven in a mug.
Besides making the perfect cuppa with this aromatic coffee, I tried it in a couple of recipes too. A simple layered tiramisu made with mascarpone cheese, cream, boudoir biscuits and this excellent brew (with a glug of Marsala and a few fresh cherries to reflect the cherry notes in the coffee) was divine. Then a favourite speedy dessert - affogato - with a quality vanilla ice cream doused with hot coffee and served with amaretto biscuits. Perfect!
