About this Coffee
Our flagship espresso blend has evolved over the years but the goal has remained the same – pack as much sweetness, chocolate and caramel into an espresso with a rich, smooth and silky body. Currently we’re tasting notes of dark chocolate, caramel and hazelnut.
The components of coffee for our flagship espresso change throughout the year in-line with the availability of fresh crop but we work hard to maintain the taste profile and quality in the cup – a trusty friend that we know we can count on time and again.
The name Empire originates from our hometown, New Plymouth – Empire is the name of the first café that offered this blend and we love the idea that ever since, many a successful new venture has put their faith in our trusty friend.
