Bébó (Pronounced: Bay-boh)
This is our seasonal house blend and we hope you love it as much as we do.
The flavour profile is full bodied and syrupy with milk chocolate, plum jam and butterscotch. We get this by combining the rich, full bodied and chocolatey profile of the Sumatran bean with the sweetness of the Brazilian coffee and the big punch of flavour of the Kenyan beans.
Winner of a 2 star UK Taste Award 2022 and, along with our Niamh coffee. a finalist in this year's Blas na hEireann 2022 Irish Food Awards. We've won the Gold medal for that last 2 years. Let's see if we can make it again this year.
We've named it after the beautiful Queen to King Lubhdán from the 13th century story Eisert, itself based on the 8th century saga of Fearghus Mac Leide, King of Ulster. The story relates the adventures and misadventures of Bábó and her husband Lubhdán in Ulster. It is believed that this story was the basis for Swift's Gulliver's Travels!
Winner of a 2 Star Great Taste Award 2022. Here's what the judges said
'Excellent coffee.....each source of beans brings something totally characteristic of the three regions. The Brazil is the drum beat that keeps the story rolling, the Kenya is the rhythm that adds a further degree of complexity then the Sumatran a spicy top line that takes the finish to a balanced whole with interest and character in every mouthful.'
