Coffee and Cask - BEDIM Day 14

In April, I was contacted by the lovely people over at Coffee and Cask on Instagram.

They asked if I wanted to try out some of their coffee, and how could I say no? 






Coffee and Cask provide Ale and Coffee Subscription Boxes (can I get a hallelujah for a perfect combo in a box?!)

All of their coffee is roasted in Kent and they work closely with the roasters to make sure that their blends are the best they can be. 
They have also teamed up with some of the best breweries from all across the country.



They kindly sent me over a bag of their Resaca Blend, which is a blend of Honduras and Ethiopia. 


Next in the box was this super cool envelope, I had no idea what was inside.




A VIP card, I think this is an amazing intensive for customers to Coffee and Cask who can access special percentages off boxes and free entry to any events Coffee and Cask do. 









Resaca is a Coffee and Cask unique blend of Honduras higher grown coffee and a classic Ethiopian.
This blend gives a fusion of cocoa and dried apricot with a long and pleasant lingering cashew tone. A most delightful and classic coffee blend of two regions renowned for their coffee heritage.




Like most blends I get here on The Coffee Life we're going to do a French Press brew (since I broke my mokka pot, oops)



Brew
French Press
26g of Coffee
500g of Water
Total Brew Time 6 Minutes
30 Second Bloom 120g of Water




This coffee is typically roasted a little darker than I would usually go for - however!!! It was super delicious, with overwhelming cocoa notes, a full bodied nutty undertone and dark chocolate aromas. With some added milk it made it super creamy and more like milk chocolate. 
I'm super excited to put this into my aeropress and see how the taste differs (I'm sure I'll post an update on my insta when I do!)
