Summer Coffee Means Iced

Summer Coffee Means Iced

We've been flying through iced coffee over the last few weeks at our cafe and at home, too, and have been loving our Ardi coffee as our go-to iced coffee choice. Fruity and tropical, it's a pretty perfect way to start off summer. We're brewing it in Japanese fashion or hot-over-ice to preserve those clean flavors and fruity brightness, but it also has enough body and chocolaty base to work well for you cold brewers, too.

Ardi gets a lot of praise, but we're equally pleased with our Las Brisas coffee right now. Our roaster often picks washed coffees over naturals and finds that the smaller, semester two harvest of Las Brisas has been a really unique Latin American coffee. Colombia has two harvests, and for Las Brisas, the smaller harvest that lands in late May to early June tends to be a bit more complex, fruity, and bright. This year is no exception - it's got some really nice green grape and grilled pineapple fruity brightness, plenty of caramel sweetness, and a bit of savory complexity.  If you're expecting the same coffee we last roasted for you back in early spring, you'll be pleasantly surprised with this harvest.

Beyond those two coffees currently up for grabs, you can expect at least one new coffee every three weeks or so for the next few months. We're excited about lots of tasty offerings from Ethiopia, Kenya, Guatemala, and more - as coffee buyers and roasters, summer arrival season is our favorite time in the coffee year. Next up is a returning friend, fresh crop Beriti from Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia! Delicate florals, citrus, lychee (think slightly creamy white peach), and a nice honey and graham cracker sweetness. Grab some coffee over ice and enjoy the summer sun!
