We were getting requests for a traditional Italian style espresso. This made us nervous as cheap Italian espresso blends can be bitter from over roasting and cheap robusta. So we set about making a much higher quality version, an elegant modern interpretation in the Dark Woods style.
The blend starts with specialty arabicas from South America and India. Finally, we add in the very best quality robusta from the award-winning Harley Estate in India. It’s just mid-roast resulting in a smooth rich bodied espresso that will make people reassess this style.
With a medium roast, Deer Hill delivers a soft, but full-bodies espresso with notes of fudge, toasted nuts and milk chocolate.
Deer Hill won a coveted 2 Stars at the 2018 Great Taste Awards.
