Thunderbird is currently a 70/30 blend of washed and honey processed coffees. Created with both the traditional espresso lover and milk coffee drinker in mind. Thunderbird is roasted carefully to produce a specific cup profile that has lower acidity and a focus on chocolate and caramel flavours. Like everything else we roast, we chose the coffees in this blend because they are sweet, clean and were grown and processed beautifully. This means it can be enjoyed with or without milk to the very bottom of the cup!

The consistency and clean cup profile is the reason this coffee is the base of our Thunderbird Blend. Working closely with our main import partner Caravela Coffee, and producer group, La Estrella, allows us to commit to excellent coffee, harvest after harvest. This commitment also empowers the farmers to improve their farms and better their communities.
