Drunken Warrior


Our Gold Medal Award-Winning Coffee

The inspiration

Drunken Warrior is a labour of love, ignited by our passion to make Rum-aged beans accessible. This unique specialty blend was born from the challenge of taming the acidity in Rum-aged coffee beans.

Crafting this unique specialty coffee blend came with its share of challenges. Initially, we grappled with the inherent acidity of Rum-aged coffee beans, which could be quite intense when enjoyed on its own. Surprisingly, even adding milk did not always mellow it out. To find the right balance, we drew inspiration from the delightful flavours of Rum and Raisins ice cream.

Another hurdle was the art of blending five distinct single-origin beans and roasting them together. Our senior roaster skillfully navigated this complexity. In an espresso shot, you will encounter the bright acidity of stone fruit notes. Yet, with the addition of milk, the magic unfolds, rum, raisin, and dark chocolate nougat notes harmonised. Drunken Warrior is your ideal dessert companion, pairing exquisitely with cakes, ice cream, or any sweet indulgence.

Drunken Warrior is our pride, a testament to our commitment to exceptional coffee.
