About this coffee
What better way to ring in the holiday season than with this stand-out festive blend from our pals at Allpress. Bursting with seasonal flavours from Ethiopia, Guatemala and Sumatra this roast is suited to both espresso and filter style brewing. The Ethiopian brings bright berry acidity and floral aromas, the Guatemalan good body, smooth apple acidity and chocolate-caramel flavours, and the Sumatran brings spice and dark raisin fruit notes. The end result is a delicious cup tasting just like Grandma’s Christmas Cake but we’ll let you see for yourself.

We recommend whole bean as generally, whole beans will stay fresher for longer and give you the flexibility to grind your beans to suit different brewing methods.
If you have an Espresso Machine, we recommend you grind your own coffee to suit your particular machine. However, we do offer a ground bean option for Espresso, and if you select this option we will do our best to get it right but there are no guarantees as it's a fine balance.
If you select ground coffee for Filter, beans will be ground medium which will be suitable for most at-home brewing methods e.g. Plunger, AeroPress, Chemex, Drippers etc.
