Today we are proud to refresh and reborn Jabberwocky, one of our most successful blends
With teeth that bite and jaws that snap, its a bight in your face espresso blend with a kick in its tail.
Following on from all the new espresso blends, it was time to turn our attention to the the long lost De Lujo blend. De Lujo was a blend of bright and sweet coffees; citrus loveliness at a more reasonable price than, say, the Kicker espresso blend (which was the CoE blend replacement).
Like the Kicker, this blend should challenge the palate and not be an easy option, needing hard work to get the best from it. Get it wrong and it will have claws that catch and jaws that bite, but your rewards for taming this blend shall be plentiful.
Why Jabberwocky? For those who don’t know, it’s a famous Lewis Carroll poem from ‘Alice in Wonderland’. It has always been my favourite poem.
The verse just seems to fit this blend perfectly and as with all of the new blends, it offers a personal link. The poem was written in the home of Lewis Carroll’s parents just outside Sunderland, and I am a huge Sunderland football fan. It all seemed too much of a coincidence, so the blend was born.
This is a fruity, challenging, bright citrus acidity based blend with a sweet kick at the end.
