Award-winning New Zealand artisan coffee roastery, Ozone Coffee Roasters (www.ozonecoffee.co.uk) has launched its first-ever festive blend for the UK – the perfect gift for coffee-lovers this Christmas.

Ozone Coffee Roasters has selected, artisan roasted and blended the highest quality coffee beans from Brazil, Guatemala and Kenya to create the Limited Edition 2012 Christmas Blend, which brews rich, naturally sweet, complex coffee with a full, rounded body.

Flavours evoke the festive season, with roasted nuts, cocoa, caramel, raisin and dark red berry fruit. The aroma is dynamic with citrus peel, bold fruit and floral notes.

The recommended at-home brewing methods to complement this special blend’s characteristics are Espresso, Cafetiere/Plunger, Pour-over/Filter and Chemex.

The Limited Edition 2012 Christmas Blend is the first in what will become a seasonal tradition for Ozone Coffee Roasters.

Lizzie Bain and James Gurr, co-owners of Ozone Coffee Roasters said: “This year we have selected a rich, complex coffee from Ipanema Estate in Brazil, a stunning direct trade coffee from Finca El Aguacatal in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala and a bold, dynamic Peaberry micro-lot selected at auction from Kenya.

“Our 2012 Christmas Blend is balanced, sweet, full bodied, aromatic and satisfying with every complex sip.”

The Limited Edition 2012 Christmas Blend is £9 per 250g bag, available to buy at the café on Leonard St in Shoreditch. Credit Card orders can also be placed via email info@ozonecoffee.co.uk and Ozone Coffee Roasters will ship orders to any UK location for a small delivery fee.
