Ona Coffee launches Easter Egg coffee blend

Easter egg coffee blend

Ona Coffee has announced the release of a limited-edition Easter Egg coffee blend for the upcoming Easter holidays.

This special blend has been created using a mixture of single origin coffees from Africa, India, and Papua New Guinea.

Ona Coffee Head Roaster Sam Corra says that the mixture of these coffees creates the Easter Egg flavours of the blend.

“The coffees we are using are created using specific techniques, which accentuates different flavour profiles in the cup,” he says.

“We are using carbonic maceration-processed coffees from Ethiopia to bring complexity of sweetness and texture to the blend, and the coffees from India and Papua New Guinea help to balance this sweetness and prolong the experience on the palate.”

Ona says the Easter Egg blend has a sweet, milk chocolate flavour quality. When paired with milk, this quality transitions into a sweet, caramel chocolate similar to a Creme Egg.

Ona Coffee has provided tasting notes and recipes on its website for customers wishing to use the Easter Egg blend at home.

“We want people to be able to replicate the recipes and methods we use when they are in their own home,” Sam says.

“We utilise QR codes and URLs on our packaging to direct people towards our online database, which contains recipes and information about each coffee we currently stock.”

The Easter Egg blend is available from 14 March until the Easter holidays in late April.
