Magic Rock & London Coffee Festival

Magic Rock crop

For some time we have been collaborating with Magic Rock Brewery, looking at innovative combinations of coffee and beer. It is great to have a brewer with such an international reputation on our doorstep and their knowledge of the brewing process is astounding.

It started with an idyllic afternoon down at our mill with a host of coffee samples and a few fresh flasks of Cannonball IPA brought along by the guys from the brewery. To top the afternoon off Russell from Companio Bakery popped by with some of his new breads.
And last week the fruits of that afternoon were unveiled simultaneously by Magic Rock at the Copenhagen Beer Festival and ourselves at the London Coffee Festival. Magic Rock had Caffeinball, the bigger brother to our coffee spiked Hire Wire. Both beers infused with a bright citrus coffee from Thiriku in Kenya.

Thanks also must go to Cimbali who hosted Dark Woods Coffee on their stand at the Festival. After a busy day brewing coffee we switched to the beer late in the afternoon to universal approval!
