coffee by code Black Coffee Roasters


At Small Axe, every step of the coffee making process is considered and deliberate.


BLACK COFFEE
We use Code Black’s ‘Seasonal’ blend for our black coffee. This blend is roasted lightly; in order to retain more of the natural flavours of the coffee cherry/bean. When properly extracted, it should taste sweet, acidic + fruity.


MILK COFFEE
We use Code Black’s ‘Ex Wife’ blend for our milk coffees. This is a medium-dark roast and more traditionally Italian. It’s more robust and can be bitter when black, but is sweetened by the natural sugars in the milk.
We steam our milk to a range of about 55-65 degrees Celsius. In this range, milk tastes the sweetest but is not so hot that the sugars burn and become bitter, of course milk can be made extra hot on request.
