The Docks House Blend
The Docks is well suited to those who love a more ‘traditional’ style of blend and is packed full of rich chocolate and nutty notes. The real star of this show though is the body! A super buttery mouthfeel makes for a moreish smooth espresso.
Expect : Milk Chocolate, Toasted Nuts, Tangerine
Enjoy with : With or Without Milk

It’s my favourite coffee - I not only order it to have at home but also almost exclusively go to coffeeshop that serve it!
I ordered 1kg of The Docks House Blend whilst ordering a nice notneutral mug (which I love and was the only reason I bought some beans). Unfortunately, after drinking it as espresso, long black, cortado and flat white, they are the most middle-of-the-road beans I have ever tasted. Perhaps I should have expected this from a house blend as I imagine its role is to appeal to the masses and not be too "in-your-face"... that being said, I've tried changing the grind size to see if I can capture some more of the flavour profile described but have had no success.
I reckon these are the right beans for someone who is really not fussed about the taste of the coffee but wants a decent amount for a fair price.
I would have given 2 stars for the coffee but have given 3 starts total as the delivery was incredibly quick and I love the mug I bought. I would definitely consider ordering more equipment (they have a great range) and maybe coffee from their Explore range but will stay away from their house blend for the time being.
Taste is subjective but for me I feel like this just works both with milk and without, I do lean towards a more classic coffee.
I grind the beens right before I make my coffee and brew with a moka pot or Aeropress, works well with both.
It’s definitely better than anything I bought in a grocery store.
I’m lucky that North Star is my local roaster, as the coffee is superb, we’ll priced and attractively packaged (these things matter!)
Easy to order quick delivery and great coffee
