Veneziano and I are so excited to bring you our new collaboration, Gary Mehigan Specialty Coffee. Veneziano and I go way back, about 15 years in fact. I used to serve Veneziano at my restaurants and I’ve been drinking it for years.
Veneziano are pioneers in specialty coffee and their blends are always consistently delicious with something to suit every taste. The range we’ve created has something for every drinking occasion, from that early morning caffeine hit to something a little more indulgent on a Sunday morning.
THE DAWN – The kickstarter blend. This one will fire you up and get you going in the morning. A blend of beans from Brazil, Colombia and India with tasting notes of cocoa, almonds and dark caramel. It’s a little stronger and designed to cut brilliantly through milk.
THE EVERYDAY – The easy starter blend. This is the perfect blend for any occasion or time of day. A blend of beans from Brazil and Colombia, it carries tasting notes of milk chocolate, cashews, cinnamon and honey. The perfect all-rounder to be enjoyed with milk or black.
THE WEEKEND – The slow starter blend. My favourite fruit-driven blend that I love to indulge in on the weekend. A blend of beans from Peru, Ethiopia and Guatemala. It has beautiful notes of berries, stonefruit with a vibrant green apple acidity. Take your pick, it’s lovely with milk or black.
Veneziano and I have a mutual love of teaching our craft to coffee and food lovers alike. Head to the coffee tips section of the blog for tips on how to get the most out of your beans at home and to level up your barista skills.
I’m also a massive fan of using coffee in food. Dessert is the obvious choice, think espresso panna cotta or crème brûlée, but I also love it pared with beef, think coffee glazed short ribs. Head to the recipes section of the site for some of my favourite coffee recipes.
We hope you love drinking our new blends as much as we do and enjoy turning your everyday coffee into the occasion it deserves!
