The Tiki Tonga Team spend the day put our Specialist Performance Blends at our most recent Spring photoshoot; the No.#2 The Heavy Hitter and our No.#8 The Big Contender to the test...
Tiki Tonga Training tip for you...
As both blends are specifically designed with performance in mind, try adding the #No.2 or #No.8 as your training preparation drink 30 mins before your session, giving you the edge you deserve and packed with a delicious caffeine punch!
The Mocha Latte, for sure doesn’t usually immediately spring to mind when deciding on your drink of choice, but when tasted it can quickly become one of the best winter warmers around, not as sweet as a pure hot chocolate, but just enough and also giving you on occasion that much needed chocolatey caffeine kick!
We hope you enjoy our video, where we prepare for you our Guinness 232 Mocha Latte. The malty sweetness and rich mouthfeel of this Arabica blend, is the perfect partner to the real chocolate. For this recipe we chose to make it with Guinness Dark Chocolate from Lir, for that extra Guinness twist.
Following the success of our first single origin No.#10 The General, we are excited to introduce you to our second single origin coffee joining the Tiki Tonga family.
No.#3 The Unsung Hero, is the cornerstone of our pack, a player with exceptional character.

Iced Coffee – So who invented it?
We are told that the first versions of iced coffee, then named 'Mazagran', made their appearance in Algeria around the year 1840 during the battle of Mazagran (pronounced Masagran). During this battle, the French were fighting the Arab and Berber military over Algeria, it took 17 years and during this time milk became scarce, so the soldiers took to adding water to their coffee as a substitute for milk and even drank it as a ‘pick-me-up’ most refreshing cold. Upon returning to France, they brought their new recipe home with them to the local cafés and named it ‘café mazagran’.
