Dark, rich, chocolatey..
The Vivace Blend is left in the coffee roaster for a little longer to offer a dark, bold and creamy coffee. Our coffee roaster says this blend brings out the richness of coffee without giving too much bitterness. A popular option for espresso or a rich filter with those that buy coffee online and in our retail store. Our coffee roaster alternates between this and the Premium Blend as our two dark roasted blends.
A rich blend with lower acidity. A heavy bold body with dark and chocolate tones. It exhibits flavours of sweet dark caramel and bakers chocolate.
Recipe (commercial espresso machine):
Espresso Brew Ratio: 1:2.3
Extraction Time: 27-32 seconds.
This means that for every gram of ground coffee dosed into the porta-filter there is 2.3 grams of coffee extracted. If using and dosing with an 18g porta-filter you can extract approximately 42-grams of liquid (coffee). Still stuck?

Where it’s from:
This blend is a four bean blend with a South American Colombian base to give the coffee its natural sweetness. Central American and Indonesian beans are added that give this blend its distinctive character and rich body. All origins are ethically sourced and picked based on their quality, consistency and flavour characteristics. As this blend is predominantly used in espresso we have chosen a base with a heavy mouth feel and flavour characteristics that will minimise bitterness.
