    While on holiday in Devon last week I spotted these beans in the Barnstaple branch of TK Maxx. Apparently the tasting notes are 'a slight smoky whiff' and they are 70% Arabica and 30% Robusta. I resisted the temptation to buy any!!

    It's not often that you hear of a 100% Robusta Single Origin being fit to drink as an espresso. Robusta (Coffea canephora) beans are usually added to Arabica (Coffea arabica) beans to form a blend, raising the caffeine content and in some cases keeping the price of the blend low (as Robusta...
