ORB CAFÉ Range

ORB 101 Roast:
Medium

ORB 101 is our signature blend, perfectly crafted to deliver complex flavours. Specifically created for use in cafés and restaurants, the 101 offers strong, full-bodied characteristics that are best highlighted in milk-based coffees.

ORB 101 is a blend of 100% Arabica coffee beans that have been medium roasted. A base of smooth Colombian beans delivers a full-bodied mouth feel, strengthened by the chocolate, nutty Brazilian beans and delicately tempered with sweet, fruity notes from Uganda.

 

Sensory Profile

 

LATITUDE Roast:
Dark

Latitude is a blend of 100% Arabica beans from Brazil, Costa Rica, and East Africa, delivering a rich, dark flavour profile, more intense than the 101. These regions deliver beans that can handle a dark roast without becoming overly bitter or sour.

Costa Rican beans bring out dark cocoa notes against a nutty Brazilian base, and berry notes from East Africa. The chocolate, nutty flavours cut through milk-based coffee and deliver a deliciously complex, but nicely balanced coffee experience.
