Reindeer Poop | Espresso Blend
Meet our special holiday release - Reindeer Poop! Two of our favourite coffees of the year - a washed caturra from Alberio Lugo in Acevedo, Colombia & natural heirloom varieties from Kayon Mountain Farm in Guji, Ethiopia!
Expect to taste: Christmas! lychee, honey, milk chocolate, jasmine, marmalade, mango pudding & cranberry
TL;DR: We've paired two of our favourite coffees of the year to bring you this bouquet of tropical fruit in true festive Australian style! Forget fruit cake, spices and chocolate, it's way too hot for that! We've got you covered with all the chill tropical flavours that we should be enjoying at this time of year!
Stuff your stockings and put on a silly hat, this is Christmas in a cup!
'Tis the season, and we (Dani) are releasing this coffee with the confidence of a middle-aged, middle-class white man who’s never been told no. Kinda like how Santa somehow has permission to break into everyone’s house and eat their cookies (rude).
It’s called Reindeer Poop because we assume, somewhat like unicorns, these magical creatures could only expel the sweetest of things (and honestly we ran out of ideas that weren’t childish).
We are roasting this for espresso and filter brewing so no one has to miss out. This special release is only around till January, so jump on it!
From all of us here at Core, to you, your families and loved ones - especially the puppies - we want to say thank you for your support in 2023, have a great Chrimbo Limbo (yeah, we had to google that one too), and we can't wait to be up in your mugs in 2024!
We start with the same recipe for all of our espresso coffees:
- 20g dose
- 45g yield
- 30 seconds
From here we will tweak things to get the flavours to highlight things we like. Use this as your starting point and go wild!
Note: some domestic espresso machines can’t use a 20g dose. Please always follow your manufacturers instructions to avoid damaging your equipment.
