985 Blend Description
Our first ever blend is a testimony to why it took us to long to develop one. We have standards. We tried to answer the question, "How do you develop a blend of two premium, direct trade coffees and make it as good, if not better than just selling those amazing coffees on their own?" The answer, our 985 Blend.
The biggest problem with fresh roasted single origin coffees is that sometimes you don't get the same flavor year over year, because we're really relying on the crops to be consistent and that just isn't possible. We know the farms that produce the best coffees, but the beans themselves are not going to be the same each year. In a blend, our goal is to bring this consistent flavor year after year. The only way I knew to do this was to spend years developing and testing it. We're pretty sure we have it and are so excited to finally launch our first of several blends.
Our 985 Blend is a delicious mix of nutty and chocolatey flavor notes. It has the perfect balance of earthiness and smoothness that comes from a Latin American coffee.
