About the coffee

The coffee from the Corcasan cooperative is rich and intense with notes of creamy dark chocolate and pecans.

A versatile dark roast coffee that is suitable for everything from lattes to pure espressos. The sweet and rich notes is why this is one of the most popular coffees at ØNSK. Rasmus, our coffee buyer says: "Corcasan makes a coffee that fits perfectly with the preferences we experience here in DK. It's rich and intense, with a noticable coffee taste.This is precisely why it is really great for milk based coffee drinks, where the fat frothy milk and the deep, intense coffee taste compliment each other perfectly. It is perfect choice for the coffee drinker who wants an excellent, rounded coffee, without a lot of surprises."
