Christmas Deal

Aeropress + 250 g. Esmeralda Special + mineral water.

Get it here.

Hacienda La Esmeralda Special is a remarkably aromatic coffee. We find those floral aromas come out very well when brewed on the Aeropress. (With each Aeropress you get a note about our brew profile).

The water quality is extremely important for bringing out the aromas. Especially in the Copenhagen region the water is very hard and the calcium in the water eliminates a lot of the organic acids that bring these bright aromas. So we've included half a litre of mineral water in this package so you'll be sure to experience this difference to tab water. We hope you'll choose to spring for some mineral water for the rest of the coffee once you've tasted it.

This offer runs until Christmas.

New Espresso Blend

Thursday we're launching our new Direct Trade Espresso Blend.

From the early days of The Coffee Collective it has been a goal for us to have a Direct Trade Espresso. We're therefore happy to finally have our espresso blend 100% Direct Trade.

The new blend builds on the base from before: Daterra Sweet Collection and Finca Vista Hermosa. But in stead of the Idido we've now found a great espresso roasting profile for the Kiawamururu from Kenya. We've managed to balance the acidity without loosing the fantastic floral aromas.

The taste is clean and very sweet with an elegant acidity. Marcipan and chocolate base notes and subtle top aromas of black currant and gooseberries.

Come by all day Thursday for a free espresso at the coffee shop!
