CROW TREE: Dark yet bright, Crow Tree is a rarity amongst speciality coffees. Top quality, high altitude Arabicas are more commonly left light but Dark Woods felt that this only tells half their story. By using the cleanest available green coffee they are able to roast darker to develop bold yet defined flavours that match those found in the very best single estate chocolate.
Crow Tree utilises coffees sourced from farms closely involved with the Café Femenino Project. This ground-breaking organisation supports women farmers and producers in what can be a challenging and male-dominated industry.
TASTING NOTES: Dark Chocolate with a hint of red berries
ROAST LEVEL: 4
LAMPLIGHT DECAF: Dark Woods' Lamplight Decaf is gently decaffeinated using the Swiss Water method. This process not only removes the caffeine without resorting to harsh chemicals but also imparts a breaded sweetness that resembles rich fruit cake. Delicious brewed in every method Lamplight is coffee without caffeine or compromise.
TASTING NOTES: Flavours of sweet fruit cake
ROAST LEVEL: 3
UNDER MILK WOOD: Awarded a 3-star award and the “Golden Fork” in the 2016 Great Taste Awards for the best product in the North of England; it has also won a great taste award in 2017 & 2018.
This espresso blend is designed to melt into milk to give you a wonderfully caramel flavoured cappuccino, using high-grade single estate coffees to deliver familiar flavours rather than challenge.The roast level is carefully balanced to avoid the bitter flavours associated with some tradition style espresso blends, or acidity of some lighter blends, letting the sweetness shine through. Under Milk Wood is very versatile and works well as a filter coffee too, in cafetieres and drip filters.
TASTING NOTES: Melts to smooth caramel in milk
ROAST LEVEL: 3
