BLAKES ALWAYS ORGANIC (BLAKES ORGANIC CHOCOLATE Ltd)
Blakes Organic Chocolate Ltd now produces their own Organic Kefir and Coffee products in County Leitrim, to complement their existing Organic chocolate business. In order to reflect this, we have recently changed our company name to Blakes Always Organic
Blakes Culture Blend Coffee was recently awarded the Bord Bia National Organic Award 2016 for Best Prepared Product. Our coffee beans are roasted locally in Carrick on Shannon. They are a blend of three Organic and Fairtrade coffee bean varieties, which are blended to give our coffee a rich body, low acidity, and just a hint of sweetness.
The main bean variety we use is an Arabica bean from Indonesia: Sumatra Mandheling Raja Gayo (The King of the Gayo Mountain). This gives our blend a nice smooth body. To this we add some Peruvian Arabica: HB Grade One, which gives our blend its sweetness and a hint of fruitiness. Then we add a small amount of Indonesian Flores Robusta for that extra kick of caffeine.
Blakes ‘Feel Good’ Kefir is produced in Drumshanbo from locally sourced organic pasteurized cows’ milk. Our natural flavour contains nothing but the Organic milk and the kefir culture to ferment the product. This gives our kefir its rich tarty flavour. Thanks to our blend of kefir cultures, each cup of kefir contains 12 live and active beneficial cultures. The benefits of these good bacteria may include supporting immunity and a healthy digestive system.
