Our master blenders have joined three rare and remarkable coffees, creating an exquisite, singular gift of terroir. Hacienda Alsacia™, from our own Costa Rica farm, returns with hints of citrus alongside Aged Sumatra, ling treasured for its earthy, aromatic spice. New this year is inclusion of full-codies Sulawesi coffee from the Indonesian archipelago. These hand-selected beans, cultivated by smallholder farmers, bring delicate butterscotch sweetness to our Christmas 2020 blend.
Caffè Verona™ is a seductive blend of beans from Latin America and Indonesia, with a gentle touch of Italian Roast lending depth, soul and sweetness. Because this delectable combination pairs so very well with chocolate, it has become a Valentine’s Day favorite – and the coffee we most associate with romance. Bella, Bella! P.S.: Literature lovers out there will recognize Verona as the city where Shakespeare set Romeo and Juliet. Although the play ends in tragedy, we’d like you to know that every cup of this coffee has a happy ending.
It's a special blend of beans from Latin America and Asia-Pacific darkly roasted to produce a rich and caramelly sweetness. Because this dense, full-bodied brew has a stout taste that stands up against milk, it’s the perfect foundation for making a latte or cappuccino at home. Here’s an interesting fact: Espresso was invented in Italy by an enterprising soul who was seeking a way to prepare coffee in less time, in order to serve commuters rushing to catch trains. Which is somewhat ironic when you think about it, because coffee lovers in Italy (and all over the world) now prefer to savor their espresso in long, slow sips.
That’s an apt description of our favorite way to enjoy Italian Roast – just ourselves, two cups, and an afternoon to spare. This coffee gets its distinctive sweetness from the way it is roasted: dark, and darker still. Somewhere beyond the caramel notes of our Espresso Roast but short of the smokiness that identifies our French Roast – that is the sweet spot held by Italian Roast. What is created after the coffee cools is a sturdy and sweet blend, potent and intense.
It takes an adventurous palate to appreciate this coffee’s blunt flavors. In fact, French Roast is one coffee that people seem to either love or hate. There is no in-between here. If you are a Francophile, we’d like you to know that our French Roast is something we’re particularly proud of. Perhaps no other coffee demands more attention from our roasters. And the beans we use here are of the highest quality. In truth, they have to be in order to withstand the intense fires that make French Roast what it is – anything less than the sturdiest would be totally consumed by the heat.
