After a decade of single-origin coffee offerings, Transcend is bringing back the blend. When Transcend first began in 2006 it only offered blended coffee offerings such as the “Magpie Blend” and “St. Drogo’s Blend”. As Transcend evolved we moved away from blends and focused solely on single-origin coffee offerings. While this model remains the dominant focus with our coffee offerings, we decided it was high time to celebrate a few blends again.

In the past year, we have worked hard to curate a quality coffee line-up that is focused more on distinct flavour profiles rather than country of origin. Our goal with the Argyll Blend is to offer a consistent and classic flavour profile which is available year-round. While the coffees will change with the seasons, the classic profile of chocolate and nuttiness with hints of fruit will remain constant.

The name ARGYLL is an homage to Transcend’s first home just off of Argyll Road in Edmonton. That tiny shop was the beginning of Transcend’s journey through the coffee industry and was where so many Edmontonian's learned about the range of flavour possibilities within coffee. We feel it’s a fitting name for our first signature blend as well.

We’ve designed this blend to be a balance of rich, warm, classic flavours that are accentuated by hints of fruitiness. It will always be composed of two coffees in a 75/25 split.

This version of ARGYLL contains coffee from the Kanzu washing station in the Karambi sector, Rwanda. This will give it some nice fruitiness on top of the sweet caramel and milk chocolate from La Convencion. The flavour profile stays quite similar, with notes of chocolate and caramel covered fruits.
