Toffee - Espresso Blend - Vilhelms Purvītis

In honor of the birthday of the great landscape painter Vilhelms Purvītis and the artist's 150th anniversary in 2022, we opened a special art collection tin with Purvītis work “in Spring” (Springtime).

The name of Purvītis has been accumulated by his own image of the native nature, becoming a sign of national identity. At the turn of the century, he was an international recognition of the modern winter and spring motifs in the big European art centers, strengthening his future status in the Latvian art world.

The landscape called "Snow psychologists and physiologists" is mostly known after the many varying views of early north spring, where birch is reflected in the water in the thaw. However, in the portrayal of nature awakening, Ziedonis time was also associated with the time of the white humps to resemble flowering fruit trees and the snow blossomed in the air. Colors in the pure and cheerful painting "Spring" ("Ziedonis") belong to the artist's best known masterpiece, which is included in the list of values of the Latvian Cultural Canon.

Artwork: Vilhelms Purvītis. In Spring (Springtime). 1933 - 1934, collection of the Latvian National Museum of Art.



Full-bodied and silky texture with caramel and walnut flavour notes and a dried fruit finish.

This is our most recent espresso blend, tailored to fit the preference of those coffee lovers, who prefer an intense cup with next-to-no acidity. By maintaining a stable roast curve and blending highly soluble coffees from Brazil and Colombia, we achieve a profile that is reminiscent of Toffee - sweet, buttery and intense. Besides that, we feel like this cup profile, which is loved by so many, can also be an ode to people who have helped shape events in the world, which is why this coffee will always represent something or someone of importance to us.

Roast info

This coffee is roasted for espresso, meaning that it will present with higher intensity, rich texture and sweetness, lower acidity and more distinct caramelization flavours. Espresso roasts have higher solubility, meaning that you will be able to access the coffee flavours with more ease. Even though it is more suited for espresso machines and mokka pots, you can definitely enjoy it in any other method as well if you're looking for a richer cup. Espresso roasts are at their best starting from 2 weeks from the roast date, so take your time with it.

Use and storage

Brew it at a ratio of 1:2.5. For example, use 18 grams of coffee and brew 46 grams of espresso, to dilute some of the intensity and increase silkiness.

We recommend you enjoy this coffee within 3 months of the roasting date.

Store in a dry and cool place, between +16 and +25 degrees.
