Redemption Of The Spro
If you are wondering what the title "Spro" means, it is coffee slang for "espresso".
But it does not mean this coffee is only for espresso drinkers, e.g. no milk or dairy alternative.
Far from it.
Our Redemption of the Spro is a high-performance coffee blend for any espresso beverage.
It works exceptionally well as a black coffee, and in milk the sweetness soars.
Prepared using 100% specialty grade arabica coffees, we roast this blend to a medium level so that it has broad flexibility to suit many different coffee drinkers.
Redemption of the Spro is remarkably different from other coffee blends.
Initially, Spro was a coffee intended to cater for enthusiasts who value contemporary espresso.
The early brief involved developing a coffee that offered unique flavours and complexity as a black-only espresso.
It also had to be easy to work with for busy cafes.
Today, Spro is a high-flavoured espresso-driven blend with balanced acids and sweet fruit complexity, generating superb cut-through in milk.
The fusions of acids and getting that cup symmetry and balance right have made Spro a classic.
It's roasted slightly lighter than our other blend - by just 1 Deg; the fruits are more "red berry/cherry" focused, and the richness of the caramel and chocolate is incredible.
We even went to a fair amount of trouble to write an article about the various aspects of roasting depths - light, medium or dark - see the article on light-to-dark coffee roasting.
Redemption of the Spro is about celebrating espresso extraction without trying to pigeonhole it into a black or white category.
We roast this unique blend to a careful medium.
It allows all the high-grade, specialty arabica coffees to retain all the fruit complexity with impeccable symmetry and balance.
Sweet from the first sip to the last slurp.
Jammy notes of red berries, vanilla, caramel and dark chocolate - does it get any better than this?
We don't think so.
A delicious coffee for anyone.
