Black Gold No3
Black Gold No3 espresso is our first signature blend that won two gold stars in the UK Great Taste Awards in 2014.
This blend is hand roasted to just beyond first crack to give it a rich espresso zing whilst still retaining the natural flavours that are manifested at origin. Its rich chocolate and biscuit base makes it very drinkable, and a firm favourite amongst our customers.
