The Truth is our house blend and is a great base for all espresso based drinks. The focus is on sweetness, balance and body complemented by notes of chocolate caramel and subtle cherry bakewell.

The Truth is a combination of two ethically sourced, speciality grade, single-estate coffees to create a rich and sweet espresso base for smashing out world class drinks.
The Brazil Monte Cristo comes from the Daterra Farm which is one of the most technologically advanced farms in the world with extensive research being carried out in cultivars, harvesting, processing, sorting and storage. Sustainability and social responsibility have always been a priority with over 50% of the farm land dedicated to preservation areas.
The Colombian element comes from an extraordinary producer called Beatriz Giraldo and sourced through Raw Material Coffee as part of their ground breaking Red Association project. This project aims to achieve stable and sustainable prices for community coffee lots through improved quality control, shared knowledge, and a connection to the specialty coffee market. Members can expect to earn 2.5x more profit than if they sold their coffee on the commodity market.
As an espresso expect a balanced and soft acidity, high sweetness and notes of dark chocolate and cherry bakewell with a relatively heavy body. Milk accentuates the sweetness and gives the coffee a lovely yummy mouthfeel.
