Concocted in our state of the art Holy Island roasting facility - aka a couple of old shipping containers with a chimney - Our Holy Grail blend will always be comprised of only organic coffees.
The current blend is made up of an excellent high grown Colombian coffee and a beautiful, classic, washed Ethiopian. Blended, they complement each other perfectly resulting in bags of sweetness and a clean, satisfying, Juicy acidity whilst maintaining a balance to the final cup. Our Holy Grail blend works well as a slightly longer espresso but is currently being drunk here as a batch brewed filter - the perfect partner to a hard days graft.
