Caramba - Danes Specialty Coffee

The Legend

Our house blend for many years on the Northern Beaches, Caramba is the go-to café choice for its legendary Danes flavour. Beautifully balanced for milk and black styles, its legendary flavour will catch you by surprise. Its dynamic flavour is created by origins from Brazil, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Costa Rica. Caramba means “good gracious!” in Spanish, a name that will roll over your tongue as smoothly as your next cup of this popular drop.

Black - Sweetly mild acidity and a plum-like aroma. Cocoa plays with pineapple and ends with a papaya finish.

Smooth and tasty

This is the first time I’ve tried Caramba. Viking is my usual go-to bean because I enjoy the strong flavour.
Caramba surprised me - it has so much depth of flavour, smoother than Viking and definitely more chocolatey.
I’ll definitely be buying more in the future.

Best coffee is Caramba

I discovered Caramba from Danes years ago
Like a lot of coffee lovers I have had thousands from hundreds of different cafes over the years
Always searching and hoping for a great coffee
Then I found a great coffee at a cafe and I kept going back
After having daily coffees at this cafe for ages and always loving their coffee I finally asked if they would tell me what they use
Danes Caramba
I googled that and found Danes
I’ve been buying it from them ever since
Bought myself a coffee machine that goes from whole beans to expresso
I get up every morning and look forward to putting the beans in the machine then sitting down to my favourite coffee
And the other bonus is that I’m told by family and friends that I’m now really good at making cappuccinos
