New Coffee Roasts at Take Five Café:
Terra Firma

At Take Five Café, we take coffee seriously. This fall, we’re introducing a new coffee roast to our drip coffee offerings – the Terra Firma. It’s a slightly darker roast, perfect for those November mornings where rain seems to be the only constant.

The Terra Firma is a Fair Trade, Organic Coffee that originates from Guatemala, Peru and Ethiopia and is grown in the Antigua, Andres and Sidamo regions. It is fully washed, semi-dried, grown at an altitude of 3,500 to 6,500 feet above sea level and features the following flavour characteristics:

Aroma: Subtle roast profile with dark chocolate notes and toasted almonds

Acidity + Body: Both Good

Flavour: Clean and rich with strong notes of dark chocolate and toasted almonds with a subtle hint of sweet dark cherries to finish.

So this November, when you need a change of pace and something comforting to start your morning right, stop by anyone of our locations and grab a fresh cup of Terra Firma. It’s bound to start your day on the right track.

Your Espresso, small, tasty, and with a good kick of caffeine. Like anything in life, it is our differences that truly set us apart, right down to the details of coffee.
