Black Gold No.3

By Coaltown Coffee Roasters

The name sake and foundation of what we do here at the roastery. This was the coffee that kick started everything. The idea was a coffee that is easily approachable and great crowd pleaser. A delicious blend of Brazilian, Colombian and El Salvadorian Arabica coffee, Black Gold No3 espresso is our first signature blend that won two gold stars in the UK Great Taste Awards in 2014.
