Our Blend

At Wood and Green, we have the same attitude towards our coffee as our food. Only the best will do! Obviously, we don’t exactly have any Coffea Plantations toooo close by, but, we can at least choose the best blend to give you the boost you need with the most delicious flavour.

mustang-coffee-3-750x750We carefully selected the Mustang Blend by Voyager Coffee. We thought this particular blend was perfect for Wood and Green because it is VERY strong. The strength is ensured as the beans are roasted to the stage just before ‘second crack’, which also guarantees deep flavours for a memorable and moreish taste.

Mustang is made predominantly using the ‘Blue Dragon’ bean, from Vietnam, which is a Robusta bean from the Coffea Canephora plant. It has low acidity, double the caffeine and more antioxidants than its Arabican counterparts.

TRIVIA: Most fresh coffee beans and fresh ground coffee is made from Robusta because of the overall higher quality of the bean. Instant coffees are made from mostly Arabica beans because they are easier to grow and also cheaper.

Robusta is the go to bean for a great strong and punchy espresso. With the right roast, it creates a chocolatey, caramel smoothness to its flavour.

The Vietnamese bean is roasted together with three South American estate, single origin beans. This crafts that perfect caffeine fix, which in our minds has to be served freshly ground, perfectly brewed and ALWAYS in a double shot!
