French coffee roaster Malongo, headquartered in Nice, is releasing three new coffee flavours to use with the Chemex Coffee Maker.
The device - which is made from non-porous, borosilicate glass - was invented in 1941 by Dr Peter Schlumbohm in the US. Its design enables coffee to be brewed without imparting any foreign flavours.
Malongo’s latest offerings, to be used with the Chemex, include a Zimbabwe Farfell product (RRP €7.90), which it describes as lightly acidic with a medium body and long-lasting flavour. The coffee beans are sourced from a plantations on volcanic soil and pair well with refined and balanced desserts.
The roaster’s Mexique Veracruz product is made from coffee beans grown between 1000 and 1250 metres above sea level. The finished product offers a ‘aromatic complexity’ and acidic flavours with notes of dried fruit and nuts. The offering is designed for pairings with fruit-based desserts and has an RRP of €8.90.
Malongo’s third offering, the Brésil Quati, is also lightly acidic, while being smooth and well balanced, according to the firm. Notes of cereal grains are also present in the Brésil Quati, which has an RRP of €8.90.
