Espresso: 1:2 coffee to water, extracted in 28-32 secs
Origin don’t label their coffees as espresso, filter, dark or light roast. All of their coffees are omni-roast, meant to be delicious however you brew. We believe the heart of speciality is keeping the identity and character of every coffee intact and alive, no matter the brew method.
Origin's story behind Stronghold:
Stronghold is our celebration of the incredible coffees that we source from Brazil and the long-standing direct trade partners that we work with there. Our roast profile for Stronghold creates a darker, more traditional roast than our other blends.
To build this blend we drew on three of our trusted long-term partners. Ricardo Barbosa is our go-to when we want to add bass toned richness. For dark sugar sweetness and chocolate notes, we then look to Virgulino Muniz’ crops. São João – courtesy of Osvaldo Bachião – completes the blend with an added layer of complexity. This coffee is clean and sweet with flavours of dark sugar and chocolate. Stronghold is built to please those that want a simple, easy, and intense cup. A coffee that is sweet but with no acidity. We hope you enjoy it.
