I love Hi Fidelity for its rich flavour along with some sweet fruit flavours and floral highlights. It cuts beautifully through milk but works equally well as an espresso! It's definitely my pick of the bunch!

The right choice for a deliciously smooth coffee!

If you want to drink your coffee with milk, we recommend choosing a blend.

With a blended coffee, most of the time, specific single origins have been chosen to use in that blend that create a complex and balanced espresso while still having a milk based beverage in mind. The coffees have been carefully selected to provide increased body, some delicious brown sugaring flavours, or to simply add some floral complexity in order to help balance the espresso.

If our range of blends is still a little daunting, you can't go wrong with Crompton Road!

Crompton Road Blend

Named after the first home of Five Senses, our Crompton Road blend is all about comfort. With a nod towards more traditional flavour profiles, this blend is perfectly suited towards milk coffees. Think rich flavours of milk chocolate, malt and praline with a smooth, full body.

Welcome to the coffee appreciation society!

If you want to drink your coffee with black, we suggest exploring our range of single origins.

A single origin coffee is from a single known geographic location, such as a farm or estate. This allows the coffee drinker to appreciate the specific nuance that a particular growing region provides. So if you are a black coffee drinker you will be more likely to perceive and enjoy this subtlety of flavour easier without milk masking it.

If you want a tried and true coffee that will consistently be delicious as an espresso or long black, you can't go wrong with our Tightrope Blend!

Tightrope Blend

This is a blend with character! With a large proportion of natural process Ethiopian coffee in the mix, our Tightrope blend will make you sit up and take notice. Vibrant floral aromas drift from the cup well before you dive into nuanced layers of vanilla and stewed berries, all wrapped up in a syrupy body!
