This flagship blend will warm your soul like a mug of hot chocolate on a winter’s day and leave you wanting to come back for more with it’s jammy blueberry that is perfectly complemented by the graham cracker finish.
This is a sensory story in three parts. One for every component. The first lending itself to the berry acidity that reminds you of blueberry pie from the Guji Zone in Ethiopia. Started in 2012 Guji Highlands is a family owned farm in the Oromia woreda, just a stone’s throw away from the town of shakisso. This beautiful natural process is represented in the big berry sweetness and the Guji flavor profile is what lends to the deep herbaceous quality.
The second, Uganda Mwezi Natural comes from the Rwenzori Mountain Range, where it was grown by 106 small farmers, who are part of the Great Lakes Coffee Cherry Selection Program. The goal of this program, founded in 2017, is to pay higher prices for ripe cherries instead of unripe, unpeeled cherries in order to improve the final qualities of the natural beans. In less than two years, the program has begun producing unique natural coffees.
Lastly the structured Colombian hails from the Southern region of Cauca provided by Argcafe Growers Association. The group is made up of 102 farmers who grow on the surrounding mountains and deliver their coffee to be processed at a shared mill. This densely structured coffee gives this blend it’s signature clean chocolate finish.
