This full bodied blend is full of dark chocolate and roasted hazelnuts with a swirl of caramel running through it all.
Our flagship espresso blend has constantly evolved over the years but the goal has always stayed the same – pack as much sweetness, chocolate and caramel into an espresso as possible, along with the most rich, smooth and silky body achievable. This full bodied blend is full of dark chocolate and roasted hazelnuts with a swirl of caramel running through it all.
The components change throughout the year in-line with the availability of fresh crop, but we work hard to maintain the taste profile and quality in the cup – a trusty friend that we know we can count on time and again.
The name EMPIRE originates from our hometown, New Plymouth – Empire is the name of the first café that offered this blend and we love the idea that ever since, many a successful new venture has put their faith in our trusty friend.
