A coffee that has never been seen before! Roasted like no coffee has ever been roasted before. The Blind Guardian Espresso is here!

Blind Guardian worked with us to develop a coffee that really makes a splash and lives up to the name of espresso. Beforehand, we had an intensive discussion about what makes a good coffee. It is important to Blind Guardian and us, as roasters, that the coffee not only tastes great, but that it is also produced responsibly. That's why we chose a specialty coffee where the origin is clear, where the farmers are paid fairly and where the soil is not depleted. And here it is: the Majesty Roast. The Bourbon Beans have been sourced from India and bring flavours of chocolate, hazelnut, almond and spices to your cup, which gives the coffee the taste and the kick that you expect from a brilliant espresso. Crafted like a long guitar solo, roasted with skill and perseverance, this espresso is now your perfect start to the day, an after-dinner treat or a little kick whenever you want.

 



What is the Blind Guardian Roast - best Band Coffee ever?

AA Karnataka is wonderfully spicy coffee from the Chikmagalur district in southwest India, a region that used to belong to the Kingdom of Mysore. The coffee in this region is grown in harmony with nature under the naturally given shade of forest trees. In addition to the coffee trees, spices such as pepper, vanilla and various types of nuts grow here. The bourbon trees of our AA Karnataka grow at an altitude of 1500m. After harvesting, they are washed and processed. The AA Karnataka has quite large beans that taste strong and spicy in the cup.

About the farm

The history of coffee cultivation in India goes back to the legend of the pilgrim Baba Budan. He is said to have traveled through Yemen around 1670, smuggling seven coffee seeds across the border on his way back from Mecca to India. Seven is considered a sacred number in Islam, which is why Baba Budan's actions are still considered a sacred act today. He planted the first seeds in the Karnataka region, where they thrived excellently.

The Bababudangiri mountain range remains an important coffee growing region in India - this is where the coffee from the special Blind Guardian roast comes from. The coffees grown here are not only considered rarities, but also the most complex and finest Arabica coffees in India. Their flavors are strongly influenced by the flora and fauna surrounding them: spices such as pepper, vanilla and cardamom, but also orange trees provide great spicy notes.
