On the grinders this week

We have changed the beans on our grinders around a little…

For milk coffees we are serving the “Hurricane Brew” blend for Carib Bean Coffee in Antigua. It’s their signature blend since hurricane George in 1998. A wonderfully balanced blend of 5 Arabica beans roasted dark but without many of the normal bitters. It goes great with the warm milk in your flat white, cappuccino or latte.

For our black coffees, we are finishing our last bags of Wicked Joe’s “Bella Maria” blend of beans from Central America, Africa and Indonesia. They’re roasted light-medium to bring out the fantastic flavors of citrus, red berries and a smooth chocolate finish.

Once the latter is finished, we’ll try a bag of beans from Ethical Beans Company in Vancouver, Canada. They have a great collection of beans sourced from around the world and each bag has a unique QR code that tells you exactly where the beans came from, which altitude, which finca/plantation, who roasted them and what the roasting profile was. Very excited to be able to try them!

coffee to go

Cortado or Flat White

You know the difference between a cortado and a flat white coffee?

They’re both for coffee lovers. Both are enjoyed with a double espresso.

  • The Cortado has just a dab of creamy warm frothed milk.
  • The Flat White has a good pour of frothed milk but much more than a Cortado and less foam than a cappuccino.

A cortado is about the coffee. A flat white is about the milk. But then what’s a “Latte”, I hear you ask?

Come on down and let us explain it to you!

Fancy a real Cappuccino with breakfast?

Just woke up, nothing good to eat around and you need coffee badly.

Head down to the Market Café in Simpson Bay and treat yourself to fresh croissants, pastires, Greek yogurt with overnight oats, some Chia yoghurt and fresh juices or smoothies to detox from last night.

And finish it all off with an awesome Cappuccino made with real beans, whole milk and lots of love.
