Fuel Dark Cuvée from Fuel Espresso
The folks at Fuel treat espresso with the same reverence as is given to fine wines. The company only selects washed Arabica coffee beans, which are batch-roasted in a dedicated facility in Fuel’s hometown of Wellington, New Zealand. Of special note is the fact that Fuel ages its coffees to further develop their flavours. To taste the fruits of the team’s labours, try the Dark Cuvée, which was developed specifically for Hong Kong and Shanghai. This blend is roasted in the style typically found in Milan and boasts a profile reminiscent of a robust Burgundy. Expect a complex brew that’s rich, sweet and spicy, with just a touch of acidity and a smooth finish.
