Espresso Blend Description

Lucky Boy is a coffee blend that is perfect for espresso lovers but truly shines when combined with milk. It has a unique flavour profile that boasts incredible sweetness, subtle hints of orange acidity, and a creamy body that is simply irresistible. Since its introduction to our menu, Lucky Boy has become a crowd favourite, winning over Aeropress and plunger brew fans with its boyish charm and smooth texture.

We created Lucky Boy in 2019 to complement our existing house favourites, and it has quickly become a cult classic in its own right. The key to its success is its simplicity, comprising only two components: the Guatemala Huehuetenango and the Brazil Sweet Espresso. The Guatemalan is a mild yet structured coffee with warm chocolate notes, while the Brazilian brings creaminess, sweetness, and a touch of body, finishing with toffee and vanilla. The two components complement each other perfectly, resulting in a well-balanced and delicious blend.

Lucky Boy's smooth texture and well-rounded flavour profile have won the hearts of coffee enthusiasts worldwide. Whether you prefer your coffee with milk or black, Lucky Boy is a versatile blend that is perfect for any brewing method. It is no wonder that since its debut on our menu, Lucky Boy has become an all-rounder, loved by many and boasting a loyal following.

If you're looking for a delicious and versatile coffee blend, Lucky Boy is the one for you. With its unique flavour profile, simple yet balanced components, and incredible smoothness, it's no wonder why it has become a beloved classic among coffee lovers.
