UCC Coffee Launches Grand Crü Composition No.6 With Master Sommelier Ronan Sayburn

UCC Coffee UK & Ireland has launched its latest iteration of its seasonal Grand Crü coffee - Composition No.6.

Ronan Sayburn, master sommelier, has once again collaborated with Gayan Munaweera, UCC Coffee's head of coffee quality and Q grader, to source this season's finest coffees. Using their combined knowledge to create a unique composition and an extraordinary coffee, they have developed a delicious, complex blend, perfect for the premium out-of-home market. Grand Crü Composition No.6 will be available from August 2019 directly from UCC Coffee UK & Ireland.

Composition No.6 is a blend of four components offering a unique and delicate blend of Ethiopia washed (15%), Ethiopia Natural (30%), Guatemala (25%) and Costa Rica (30%), and delivering a velvety, silk-like body with notes of creamy butterscotch, cacao and dark cherries.

A true specialty coffee, each component boasts an industry recognised SCAA international quality score of over 80, giving the blend an incredible flavour worthy of the Grand Crü name. The washed Ethiopian beans offer an elegant, delicious and complex flavour, whereas the naturally processed beans deliver an enchantingly fruity undertone. When paired with Costa Rican and Guatemalan Arabica beans - regions both renowned for high quality coffee - the blend delivers an unrivalled and unique flavour in every sip.

"A Complex Cup"

Gayan Munaweera, head of coffee quality and Q grader at UCC Coffee UK & Ireland stated, "Ronan and I share a passion for identifying unique flavours, and it has been great working together again on this blend. For our sixth seasonal Grand Crü blend, we're taking drinkers to central America and across to the horn of Africa. Renowned for its floral quality of bean, Ethiopia delivers a complex cup, and when combined with Arabica beans from Guatemala and Costa Rica, it carries sumptuous flavours of creamy butterscotch, cacao and dark cherries, with a complexity of flavour coming from its refined, premium taste. It's truly a unique blend."


"An Exceptional Blend"

Meanwhile, Sayburn commented, "Much like how regions play a major role in the taste of wine, the same can be said with coffee, and Grand Crü is made for operators who treat their coffee as they do their wine. Our Composition No.6 is totally unrivalled in flavour and quality, combining the very best coffees from these regions to deliver a truly premium and memorable experience. Refreshing this composition every six months ensures customers only receive the best of best. It's an exceptional blend."

Grand Crü Composition No.6 is available from August 2019 in 10x500g packs.
