Lucky Boy is delicious as espresso but shines in milk with its incredible sweetness, subtle orange acidity and creamy body.
Since making its debut on our menu, Lucky Boy has proven to be quite the all rounder, winning over lovers of Aeropress and plunger brew methods, partially due to its boyish charm, but mainly thanks to its incredibly smooth texture.
ESPRESSO BLEND DESCRIPTION
We introduced this humble blend in 2019 to complement our existing house favourites - Daddy’s Girl and the Seasonal Blend - and ever since, Lucky Boy has garnered its own cult following.
Simplicity is key with the Lucky Boy comprising only two components. The Guatemala Huehuetenango - a mild, yet structured coffee with warm chocolate notes. Clarity and fruit forward yet balanced acidity is on point when balanced with the Brazil Sweet Espresso.
The Brazil Sweet Espresso brings the creaminess, sweetness, a little body, finishing with toffee, and vanilla.
