Bedford Blend Espresso
Orange marmalade, brown sugar, peach.
Syrupy sweetness welcomes vibrant flavors reminiscent of orange marmalade's sparkling acidity joined by ripe, juicy pomegranate. Brown sugar and maple syrup sweetness round off the cup. Conceptualized around a flavor profile equally delicious in milk as alone, Bedford Blend is Toby’s Estate’s flagship coffee for espresso preparation.
To realize their vision for Bedford, Toby's Estate combines two of their favorite relationships from a couple of the prime producing countries in the world—the San Antonio township collection station in Huila region of Colombia, and a small-scale farming community in Ethiopia, Guji zone, specifically in Shakiso. The twice-yearly harvest from the San Antonio growers ensures perpetually fresh lots of bright, sparkling acidity, excellent cup clarity, and rich citrus fruit flavors. The big berry and peach flavors from Shakiso bring depth of flavor, engaging complexity, and a syrupy roundness.
These two components are carefully workshopped throughout each lot’s lifespan, and reassessed with each harvest to ensure that the most on-profile lots are selected to fill this beloved, iconic blend.
