Grand Master has been my favourite blend for the past year. I brew it with a pourover method, let it sit for about 5-10 minutes and mix in some milk. It produces a nice and rich cup of coffee.
It is great coffee I will order again with my next staples with Direct Coffee.
Wonderful red fruit and a mild citrus and caramel sweetness. An oily, rich and powerful coffee. Perfect!
It’s would have to be the best blend I have found so far will definitely will be buying some more 10 out of 10 from me

Our Grandmaster blend is a collective of our top lots available out of our roastery and we don’t just mean our favourites. These coffees have been carefully hand sorted after processing at origin to contain less than 3% minor defects per 100g. Our Grandmaster blend was created specifically to provide a beautiful rich creamy caramel, milk chocolate and full bodied experience to shine through the milk using the Indian and Colombia washed processed coffees while bringing in those lovely sweet, fruit, floral complexities of the natural Ethiopian.
Each particular coffee is methodically roasted. Working hard to roast each bean to allow its very best potential to shine from its terroir (earth and soil) to be confidently identified when brewing. Through years of experience we have perfected this wonderful roast approach which is brought about from years of trialing the S curve, with this we have focused on an aggressive roast into first crack and allow natural bean development with low heat through to second crack. Each coffee is carefully monitored so that natural complex sugars are formed with gentle bean development making the acidity shine and create sweetness in the cup. The grand master blend roasted by our head roaster is available through out the year using the finest traceable coffees we have personally sourced through extensive work in Africa and South America and Asia. Please enjoy and brew with care and respect.
