Golden Gate Espresso Blend
TASTES LIKE Chocolate, Big & Bold.
PROFILE Ohh Golden Gate, Big and Mighty! We designed this blend to contrast the Seven Seeds Espresso Blend. We do this by continuing the roast a little longer and selecting coffees with more chocolate flavours, and low acidity. The big body and rich mouth feel makes Golden Gate perfect with milk.
COMPONENTS 50% Finca Rosma, Guatemala, 50% El Paraiso A, Colombia

ROASTING IS SUBJECTIVE, BUT TRANSPARENCY IS CLEAR
We think it’s important you know what coffee producers are paid. And, we’re proud that we can actually show you. Paying a sustainable & profitable price means coffee producers have longevity in the industry, and don’t need to turn to a more profitable crop. ‘Farmgate’ is the price the producer, or cooperative received for their selling coffee in parchment. We’ve also listed the FOB (Freight on Board) price that we paid to the exporter partner, and comparisons to other trading models. On top of FOB, we pay to ship the coffee to Melbourne, quality assess, roast (resulting in a 15% weight loss), & retail it, adding significant costs & risk.
