Our Dhak Blend is an ode to one of our favourite Indian trees with its colourful flame-like flowers that signal the onset of Spring. The coffees used in this blend are naturally processed which means that the coffee bean is dried with the cherry, resulting in complex, fruity and sweet flavours.

Roasted dark to bring out flavours of dark chocolate and fruit jam, this blend’s heavy cocoa body leaves a smooth lingering aftertaste.

This blend pairs well with milk, and our roasting team recommends it for espresso-based drinks as well as manual brews such as the Moka Pot and the French Press.

Tasting Notes: Dark Chocolate, Cocoa + Fruit Jam
