Continental Blend (Fairly Traded)


Roasted with selected arabica and robusta beans from Africa, our Fair trade Continental is an elegant and strong coffee indeed. A classic coffee, simple, clean; and direct; it’s intense flavour derived from the long continental roasting process. This coffee with it’s distinctive bite, makes an excellent base for a Cappuccino or espresso.



Fair trade Continental Blend coffee contains nothing but the finest Fair Trade beans.  Continental roast is a very high roast that requires careful attention.  Wilkinson’s master roaster not only performs this roast but creates a coffee blend that is less bitter yet maintains the strong satisfying flavour of a continental roast.  As is traditional in espresso, our Fair trade Continental Blend is mostly comprised of beans from Brazil.  Wilkinson’s recommends you try Fairly traded Continental Blend as a filter coffee base for iced coffee or Irish coffee as its strong clean flavour stands up to the addition of milk, cream or spirits.
