Rich and Fruity Flavors in Familiar and New Coffees
This week we're excited to release Ixhuatlán, a new, unique coffee from the Veracruz region of Mexico. While it's become more and more common to see coffee grown by single producers or by farmer cooperatives, Ixhuatlán is the work of three growers - Silvano Delin Reynoso, Ranulfo Felipe Delin Alcantara, and Flavia Clicelia Reynoso Vichique - who banded together outside of the structure of a cooperative or growers' association. Thus far, we've loved this coffee's chocolate, berry, red grape, and tropical fruit flavors, and its rich, creamy body. We think it'll be a stellar brewed coffee for customers who have not had the chance to try any exceptional coffees from Mexico.
While we're excited to welcome a new coffee to our lineup, we're also a bit sad to say goodbye to one of our favorite single origin offerings of the season. Today we'll be roasting our last batch of this year's El Roble. This coffee has been great this year, and while we'd love to roast it for a little bit longer, we're happy that we were able to buy and roast part of this small lot from the Monge Quiros family in Costa Rica.
Finally, today marks a new version of Blue Orchid, with El Carmen Estate from Huila, Colombia in place of Pueblos Mayas from Guatemala . In terms of flavor, the differences will be subtle. Blue Orchid will always maintain its full body and chocolaty, caramel flavor profile, and this new version will remain a great option both for espresso and milk-intense beverages.
