Crosby Coffee was founded in 2013 by Jack Foster, who has a love and passion for all things coffee. He supplies homes and businesses all over the North West with his freshly roast, finely ground and beautifully brewed coffee with his creativity shining through every blend.
The Rookwood Roast is inspired by bourbon, and has been designed to mimic the flavours of an aged whiskey that has a strong citrus or orange like aroma, with hints of herbs and spices. When searching for the perfect blend we experimented with dried orange zest, and by adding herbs and spices once the coffee was ground. Then, after conducting a blind taste test… Rookwood Roast was the winning blend! The final blend consists of a strong flavoured Indian coffee bean, grown high up in the hills which runs alongside an orange plantation. Combined with a strong Brazilian coffee bean with deep intriguing flavours.
The pair are roast separately and then ground together whilst freshly ground cinnamon is passed through the mix.
The coffee left is full bodied and strong in flavour. Orange and cocoa aroma, and hints of cinnamon and herbs towards the finish.
