The Ona Coffee team are excited to open the doors to its first Sydney café on Saturday 26 May.
To help celebrate the launch, Ona Coffee will release the Unico blend as the latest addition to its range of blends.
Unico is a seasonal, roasters selection blend, with rotating beans to showcase rare and exciting coffees.
“Unlike our current blends, this concept blend has the room to evolve in flavour and change into something new with each new release,” says Sam Corra, Ona Coffee Head Roaster.
“Sometimes it will be a blend specifically made to be prepared as espresso, sometimes for milk-based beverages, it really depends on what green [beans] we mix and how best it will work for each beverage.”
The first release of the Unico blend will showcase a mixture of Project Origin-sourced Gesha, Catuai and Heirloom coffees from Brazil, Ethiopia, Panama and Honduras.
“We’re calling our first Unico release Black Forrest, as it has a flavour profile like a Black Forrest Cake with berry undertones,” Sam says.
Bags of the Unico will be available in 200-gram bags at Ona Coffee Marrickville, its online store, and hopefully nationwide in due course.
“All of our shops will be stocking this release of the Unico in the coming weeks,” Sam says. “We’re hoping that people are excited by the idea of a ‘roasters choice’ blend and that they enjoy a changing blend that expresses a bit of creativity.”

Ona’s new Marrickville venue at 140 Marrickville Road, Marrickville, New South Wales, will also house offices, a training facility and an espresso bar featuring frozen doses of coffee.
It will be serving free coffees on 26 and 27 May to celebrate the grand opening.
