The story behind this blend was our desire to create a coffee masterpiece that is perfect as a traditional espresso but also has the characteristics strong enough to pull through milk.
This creation is done without much of the powerful strength that some would associate with a bitter taste or flavour but enough punch to give it a laidback kick. You should associate this blend with a strong but mellow, smooth, premium tasting coffee.
Strength profile: medium
It began on the cupping table with a handful of different coffee beans that were designed solely for the purpose to match the extraction of our most popular coffee making equipment. Our Q Graders have spent hours testing through different machinery and in different forms, this has given us what we would call an elite all round match for the coffee makers we supply. This absolute masterpiece is designed specifically for our products but works perfectly with all coffee making machinery on the market.
This mouth watering creation is a mixture of Ethiopian coffee with its heavy floral flavour along with Brazil, Kenyan, Columbian and the ever romantic Monsoon Malabar which involves an individual story of its own. The Brazil gives a soft nutty flavour with a low acidity, the Kenyan gives a rich wine like undertone, the Colombian gives a strong caramel sweetness and all of this combined with the Exotic Malabar’s intense flavour and full body gives what we believe is the perfect coffee experience.
Recommended extraction time: Based on a double shot in a 12 ounce cup we recommend 26 seconds through a traditional espresso machine. This setting avoids coffee being too weak or strong whilst hitting the coffee sweet spot associated with perfection.
This is our favourite blend to date. Cool Beans Bella Rose is unrivalled as an all round taste pleaser. This coffee blend gives you a unique quality over any competitor.
SO WHAT BEANS MAKE BELLA ROSE?
Ethiopia Genika is a type of Arabica coffee of single origin grown exclusively in the Bench Maji Zone of Ethiopia. Like most African coffees, Ethiopia Guraferda features a small and greyish bean, yet is valued for its deep, spice and wine or chocolate-like taste and floral aroma.
Brazil is the world’s leading grower and exporter of coffee beans, with a mellow flavor that makes for a very typical dark roast. About one-third of all of the world’s coffee is grown in Brazil, and much of Brazil’s premium coffee is labeled Santos after the port it is shipped through.
Colombia coffee reviews tend to note it as medium-bodied with a rich taste and citrus-like acidity. The best high-grown Colombian coffee typifies the classic Latin American mild, fruity flavor though not the type of fruity taste that seems almost fermented.
Kenyan Beans are Known for its consistently rich flavor along with a deep, wine-like acidity and pleasant aroma, Kenyan coffee beans have distinctly bright taste with complex tones of fruit and berry.
The coffee beans are unique to the Malabar Coast of Karnataka and Kerala. The blend is heavy bodied, pungent, and considered to be dry with a musty, chocolatey aroma and notes of spice and nuts. The harvested coffee seeds are exposed to the monsoon rain and winds for a period of about three to four months, causing the beans to swell and lose the original acidity, resulting in a flavor profile with a practically neutral pH balance. and has protected status under India’s Geographical Indications of Goods Act.
