Origin: Brazil/Indonesia blend Body: Full-bodied Roast: Dark Roast (5) Summary of taste: Smooth, fruity and luxuriously sweet Whittard recommends: Using any type of brewing method and enjoying black or with milk according to taste When to drink: After dinner
Our Santos and Java coffee blends beans from either side of the globe, Brazil and Indonesia, to create a seductively dark, velveteen coffee with a powerful kick.
The Santos beans are grown on the rolling plains of Southern Brazil, yielding dark flavours of baking chocolate and stewed fruit, while beans sourced from the humid volcanic slopes of the Ijen Plateau on the island of Java add a lighter, creamier sweetness with just the right acidity. With its heady aroma and high-roasted boldness, we like to think this coffee has something of the mystery of Indonesia, and a touch of the party spirit of Brazil…
Very dark and satisfying to come back to when you're too used to milder roasts. The Brazilian beans give it that spicy kick of cooked fruit with a slightly sharp acidity, and the Indonesian coffee smooths it out with a dark chocolatey base, with a lovely rounded mouthfeel. Especially made in a cafetiere the dark chocolate notes start to dominate.

Superb I didn't think any other coffee could compare to my chosen one . My son bought me the Santos and Java as a Christmas stocking filler . I brewed it with an open mind and when brewed I pourred myself a cup . I drink it only black . Wonderful !!!!

I have been drinking Santos & Java for over ten years and although I have tried others I keep coming back. This is the best tasting coffee, I drink it black, full of body and lovely aromas. I would recommend this to anyone how likes their coffee.
I have to order on line now as my local store has been closed down (what a shame) but the order arrives within a couple of days.

As everyone seems to say, however many other coffees you try, this is the one you always return to : the perfect espresso and cappuccino.

No matter how many other coffees I try - this remains the firm favourite.
Please consider making into nespresso type pods so I can have it at work too!

I wandered into the Whittard in Nottingham just to have a look and was greeted by an incredibly helpful assistant. She asked me what sort of coffee I liked and suggested this Santos & Java. Well done to her, it makes the most gorgeous Latte, and a perfect espresso. I'll definitely be buying more, and trying others. Gorgeous !

I have been drinking this coffee for some time now and every now and then I slip away and try something new. Returning is always a joy. This is a bold coffee with a distinctive second taste that has a smoky character. Wonderful with a fine malt.

I echo what everyone else says about this combination of beans and the service we always get from Whittard. We've been using the online shop for a couple of years and before that we used to buy from the shop in Cheltenham.
Just one recommendation though: don't grind the beans more than a few hours in advance: grind as many as you're going to use immediately and no more, otherwise you lose some of the volatile aromatic oils which contribute to that beautiful crema on your espresso.

Fantastic, aromatic coffee. It will make you smile. I bought some supposedly special supermarket beans from Java recently - not a patch on this!

This coffee is excellent and I have been drinking it for years. I like the fact that I can order on line and the delivery is quite fast. What does annoy me is that 4 days after I placed this order (in time for Christmas) I received an email offering a 20% discount. My order was for over £70, 20% would have made a considerable difference.

I have been purchasing this coffee from Whittards online for the past 2 years . The coffee is always delivered quickly, well packaged and fresh. When the postman picks up the package for delivery he knows it is for me because of the beautiful aroma. I live in a rural area and the excellent service from Whittards is essential for my coffee needs. Try them you won't be disappointed
