“Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared.” Nehemiah 8:10 (NIV)
Named after a character in the Old Testament, Nehemiah was a key person in rebuilding Jerusalem after the exile to Babylon. And, as you can see from the quote above, he was a bloke who knew the value of a ‘sweet drink’.
And that describes a major characteristic of this blend nicely. Naturally, and beautifully sweet, with distinct chocolate or caramel tones on the back of the palate. On the front, there is a distinct, lively but not too aggressive berry fruitiness.
Made up from beans from Brazil, Colombia and Ethiopia.
Roasting Notes: Start the roast on a high heat (but not an over-hot roast chamber/drum), and keep the heat up until first crack is about 1.5 minutes away. Drop the heat back, but don’t stall the roast. Take it through to within a minute or so of second crack. Dump and cool.
