About the Twin Peaks Blend:
Aaron puts it like this, “As Wood and Co has grown over the past several years we owe most of it to Twin Peaks. It’s the backbone of our coffee offerings – it’s what our cafes and customers lean on as their main coffee.”
“It’s easy to use, versatile and fun to drink. It’s both new, seasonal and specialty- whilst remaining old school in the sense that it uses coffees from a consistent source year- round so it’s flavour profile is very consistent. It is really reliable. It’s great as filter, black espresso and also works brilliantly with any kind of milk.”
