Salted Caramel Plait
Salted Caramel Plait – Mahembe Coffee from Rawanda.
100% Arabica Bourbon Washed Coffee.
Rawandan coffees are typically very chocolately and salty, with hints of blueberry. This coffee goes perfectly with the complex flavours of the pastry.
Cherry Chocolate Coronet – Finca Melchor by Café Tuxpal from El Salvador. Honey processed.
100% Arabica. One of the easiest to pair, according to Søren. It goes well with a host of coffees because of it’s many flavour nuances. Søren has chosen a honey processed coffee from El Salvador which has a caramel and chocolate flavour. This goes really well with the fruitiness and silkiness of the pastry.
