Introducing our Cornerstone Blend, a coffee crafted with the same delicious flavour profile of our popular Damn Good Blend, but roasted to a lighter, medium roast for those who prefer a milder taste.

We listened to our customers who were seeking a lighter roasted blend, while still craving the bold and smooth flavour of our Damn Good Blend. Our expert roasters researched and experimented with different blend components and ratios until we found the perfect balance for our Cornerstone Blend.

Roasted at a slower speed and medium temperature, our Cornerstone Blend has a sweet and rich flavour profile that is perfect for any brewing method. Whether you prefer it black, with milk, or as a pour-over, this versatile blend will satisfy your coffee cravings.

A. We do our production roasting on every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (except public holidays), and roasted coffees are stored in the warehouse for a few days for the dispatch of orders.

Pick up order waited too long

Ordered online and waited 12 days to pick up.
If I didn't go to store to ask about it, it might have taken much longer

Good for cold brew, not a fan when making pour over

I only have a pour over set-up at home, so I am reviewing this based on my experience with filter and cold brew.

For starters, I got the Cornerstone blend as part of the Duo Kilo sale so it made it quite affordable to try & experiment with.
I personally feel the roast level is medium-dark more than medium, compared to the Orange Sugar Blend which looks more like medium roast.

Found it difficult to nail a recipe I really liked, but I found that brewing with lower temps (88-90) with a 1:15 ratio and a coarser grind size (went with 19 clicks on Timemore C3) was a good in-between spot where there's some sweetness and acidity that isn't overpowered by the bitterness of the blend.

Cold brew on the other hand, surprisingly yielded yummy results! Very refreshing for the hot and lengthened summer. Sweet and slightly acidic at the start with milk chocolate notes at the end and the chocolate notes linger. Went with ratio of 1:13 / 1:13.33 (3g:40ml for easier measurement) and let it chill in the fridge for 16-24hrs, before filtering out with a v60.

Perhaps this coffee would work best with milk-based espresso drinks, I can imagine the bitterness of it blending well with the sweetness of milk.

No customer service

I was really looking forward to reviewing this coffee however my delivery never arrived.
Upon asking normcocoffee for assistance, I'm still yet to receive any feedback. Have reached out 3 times!
Coffee was ordered a month ago.
Still hopeful but at this stage, it's definitely dwindling!

Great drop and easy to brew

A very nice medium roast that I find extremely easy to dial in. Tasty too!
