It’s Festival time in New Orleans! This year's blend consists of fresh crop Colombia and Peru. The Colombia coffee was purchased on our sourcing trip last December; it’s a collection of lots from various small farmers in the Huila region. This coffee is great, with a really nice sugary acidity, notes of caramel, and a creamy mouthfeel. The Peru aspect of the blend is also a collection of small lots from various small farmers in the Chirinos region in Cajamarca. This coffee was selected during a sourcing trip to Peru back in the fall. Sharing notes of caramel with the Colombia, the Peru also has flavors of apple and orange.
The idea behind the blend is that it is bright and juicy to match the vibe of festival season. These coffees are roasted separately and then blended after roasting. With French Quarter Fest around the corner and Jazz Fest after that, it is really one of the most fun times of year! This coffee is intended to reflect that, with bright and fruity notes that hopefully come through in the cup and help people celebrate this lighthearted and cheerful time of year.
