The Great Taste results are in…

We are thrilled to announce that we have won stars yet again at this year’s prestigious Great Taste Awards for not just ONE, but THREE of our freshly roasted speciality coffees!

SUSSEX BARN ★★

Back in 2015 we roasted a coffee and called it Sussex Barn, named after the lovely Dutch barn in which our Coffee Roaster resides. We sent it to the Great Taste Guild of Fine Foods competition and were rewarded with a 2 STAR award, which tickled us pink! It has been our house speciality blend and served at the Edge Café for our many happy customers, and winning the coveted award every year since then. Once again we have been awarded another 2 STARS in 2018..

Hear what the judges had to say:

“Light, full, round, deep, creamy and a great balance. Berry notes with hints of dark chocolate which were pleasing and a long, balanced finish which we enjoyed!” 

“A good heavy crema. There is a spicy fruitiness with a degree of buttery biscuit. The balance is well judged with the characteristics of the different beans all playing a complex part. A coffee for all seasons to satisy the true coffee aficionado.”

Coffee from the fields of Colombia to make up the Sussex Barn Blend.

COSTA RICA – CERRO DRAGON ★★

The name ‘Cerro Dragon’  comes from one of the biggest mountains in front of the small farm where this coffee is produced. Visited earlier this year by our directors, Chris & Alice Rendle, this microlot has been awarded 2 STARS by the Guild of Fine Food. The judges said:

“There is a good medium body to this coffee and a subtle toastiness and jammed peach flavour!”

DARK SIDE OF THE EDGE

Live life on the dark side! This blend was developed for those seeking a bit of intensity – It is a blend of three beautiful darker roasted speciality coffees hailing from Brazil, Colombia and Indonesia. Dark Side of the EDGE coffee blend has been freshly roasted for espresso but can be equally enjoyed slow brewed for filter or cafetiere – receiving it’s first award of 1 STAR by the Guild of Fine Food, the judges said:

“Heavy, dark and intense – this espresso has a great crema and a long draw out and indulgent finish!”
