The mix of Colombian Medellin Excelso and Kenya AA make it an excellent-tasting coffee and stands well on a hotplate.

The story of our Mountain Deluxe blend starts in the early 1970s, when we originally started roasting coffee. At the time Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee was probably the best known but least consumed coffee in Britain.

The recipe is very simple: our mountain is a blend of 50% Colombian Medellan Excelso and 50% Kenya AA Coffee (from either the Mount Kenya or Mount Elgon areas, which produce some of the best coffees in Kenya). The result is a well-rounded perfectly balanced blend that works equally well in filter or cafetiere with a fruity rich flavour. Its ability to stand well on a hot-plate meant that this coffee was incredibly popular with caterers (who at the time were mainly using filter machines) and its popularity has continued unabated throughout the filter age and on through the 1980s and 90s through the laid-back cafetiere age.
