Our lowest acid blend!
The Riviera Blend is our smooth low acid blend. Crafted by the coffee roaster for a coffee that is sweet, nutty and roasted for flavour. Our coffee roaster says this blend has a lower acidity and is designed to be more gentle on your stomach. This is done by selecting beans and origins and typically contain lower acidity. A good option for both espresso or filter with those that buy coffee online and in our retail store. Our coffee roaster alternates between this and the Meebz Blend as our two medium to dark roasted blends.
A smooth blend with lower acidity and a silky mouth feel. A medium body with some nutty and chocolatey components. It exhibits flavours of sweet candy with nutty tones.
Recipe (commercial espresso machine):
Espresso Brew Ratio: 1:2
Extraction Time: 29-34 seconds.
This means that for every gram of ground coffee dosed into the porta-filter there is 2 grams of coffee extracted. If using and dosing with an 18g porta-filter you can extract approximately 36-grams of liquid (coffee). Still stuck?

Where it’s from:
This blend is a three bean blend with a South American Colombian base to give the coffee its natural sweetness and lower acidity. Central American and Sumatran beans from Indonesia are added that give this blend its distinctive character and flavours. All origins are ethically sourced and picked based on their quality, consistency and flavour characteristics. This blend is used well in both espresso and filter brews therefore it’s not an overly dark roast.
