Quality Report - Cornerstone Blend

About This Coffee

Cornerstone Blend was firstly made in 2019 in order to offer an alternative product to blend customers. As the Damn Good Blend was (and is still) dark roasted, there have been needs for lighter roasted blend coffee. According to the research we did, we wanted to make a blend that had a similar flavour profile to the Damn Good Coffee but just in a light roasting profile because the flavours of the Damn Good Blend was the most favourite ones by people.

So, with the same flavour concept, we adjusted the blend components and ratio. Then, designed a new medium roast profile for this coffee (Cornerstone Blend) to be used as a multi-functional blend (for black, milk, even filter). So, the Cornerstone Blend is roasted a little slower speed and at a medium range of temperature. This results in sweet, rich and smooth quality.
