Introducing our new & improved blends

With our fresh new look comes some fresh new coffees for you all to try. We have spent the past few months sourcing the best capsule coffee we can get our hands on. Our focus in this new offering is on Fairtrade & Organic blends. We are proud to say that 80% of our coffees are certified Organic & 60% of our coffees are certified Fairtrade and we will continue to work hard until to improve those numbers as we move forward. 

In addition to this, we've also significantly reduced our offering. This was due to a number of factors, but mainly listening to what our customers wanted, and also trying to reduce any confusion between having a gazillion options and not knowing the difference between them. We have chosen 5 awesome blends, each with standout features to help you decide.

So, without further ado, let us introduce you to our 5 new blends:

Honest Blend

Our brand new flagship coffee. This is our new brand new Fairtrade & Organic certified coffee, sourced from various farms in Africa. The blend used 100% Robusta beans, so this coffee packs a real punch, but also serves well as a general all rounder, which is why we chose it for our house coffee. We prefer this coffee with milk, but also love it without. Perfect for those who like a variety of coffees. 

Akiraho Blend

Our most refined coffee. In contrast to the Honest Blend, the Akiraho is a 100% Arabica roast, producing much lighter, citrusy notes than our other offerings. If you are a black coffee drinker and prefer a slightly lighter roast, then this is the coffee for you. If you are using milk with this coffee, we suggest potentially using a second capsule. 

Encore Blend

For those who like a real punch to their coffee first thing in the morning. This is arguably our darkest roast, and is designed for those who love a dark, roasty flavour. We'd recommend having this coffee with milk, ideally as a flat white, but also have a lot of respect for those who love a dark and roasty espresso in the morning. If you're a fan of more traditional French or Italian roasts, then this is the coffee for you to try.

Base Camp Blend

This is another great all rounder, and similar to the Honest Coffee, but instead using a blend of Both Arabica & Robusta beans from various farms to provide a real balance between body and acidity. A slightly lighter roast gives less punch but more citrus notes in the cup. We think this coffee is great both with an without milk. 

Swiss Water Decaf 

For those who love the taste of coffee without the zing. We are really proud to be able to offer a decaf capsule using the swiss water method. This means that the decaffeination process is done by washing the coffee using water rather than removing it using chemicals. This means that this coffee can be certified Organic, and we think it is a great option for those who love their coffee caffeine free. Recommended black, but also great with milk.

 

And that about wraps it up! We really hope that you love our new coffees as much as we do. If you have any feedback, we'd love to hear from you. You can get in touch with me at josh@honestcoffee.co.nz

Looking forward to sharing a coffee with you soon,
