Mow's x Dark Woods Black Edition

Regular price £10.95


Mow's Black Edition - an Ethiopian from Yirgacheffe with delicate jasmine florals and notes of blueberry and lemon makes this is beautiful as black but also works beautifully as a flat white with Oat milk it reminds me of blueberry granola. 


When we approached Dark Woods to create our own bespoke Espressos the aim was simple, we wanted to create a dedicated espresso that would be bold enough to stand out in milk beverages (the White edition) and a more nuanced and fruit forward Espresso for black coffee drinkers (Black Edition). Working closely with Tom and Damien we have created exactly that. 

Both of our Espressos are exclusive to Mow's Coffee and are roasted for us on a small scale by Dark Woods head roaster. They are single estate blends meaning they are a blend of processing methods rather than origin. Our White Edition Panama is 60% Natural and 40% washed and our Black Edition Ethiopian is 70% Natural and 30% washed - this provides a balanced and easy to work with Espresso but maintains the inherent quality of the terroir.
