Our 1549 Blend currently consists of 50% Rio Verde (Brazil) and 50% Santa Maria, El Salvador.
1549 is the house espresso blend at The Black Apollo, in Holt, north Norfolk.
The flavour notes we get in the cup are milk chocolate, caramel and apple to give a sweet and creamy coffee.
Beans from Rio Verde farm in Brazil constitute 50% of this blend and give the distinct chocolatey notes.
The Santa Maria beans in the blend are of the Pacas varietal. These add caramel and apple notes to the blend.
1549 Blend is delicious as an espresso, long black or flat white and equally as good with a more milky drink such as a cappuccino or latte.
