Summer officially began this week and I dunno about you, but that means I’ve got a hankering for fruity, sweet and refreshing coffees! But with all the amazing options out there, it can be a little overwhelming to choose a single origin that will hit all the right notes. What notes exactly? Ripe fruit, juicy berries, intense sweetness, full body, crisp brightness and just a hint of smooth, silky chocolate. Oh, and toss in just a dash of depth and complexity because every good melody needs harmony, am I right? Because we’re talking about a true “fruit bomb”, folks! So after roasting, evaluating and testing tons of different coffees in different ratios, we’ve put together our go-to seasonal blend for fruity filter brewed coffee. In the cup we tasted big notes of raspberry, strawberry, grape, tangerine, dark chocolate and just a dash of baking spices.

Now it’s important to specify this is OUR interpretation of the ideal “fruit bomb.” We tasted lots of blends that were too crisp, too tangy, too sweet and yes, even too fruity! So our preferred blend may not jive with what you have in mind for a fruity extravaganza and that’s ok because everybody’s tastes are just a little different. But we talk to lots of coffee fiends and after listening to their feedback, I can safely say this coffee is a sure bet when you’re not sure which coffee to choose when a fruity coffee must be chosen. And if it just happens to turn into your new favorite coffee, I promise not to say “I told ya so”!

A few quick notes on brewing: this blend was formulated and tested for filter brewed coffee, not espresso. If you’re looking for the espresso version, it’s right here! We tested this blend on both immersion and drip brew methods and found we had just a slight preference towards drip, though both performed admirably, which is one of the reasons we chose this blend over others. We also LOVED this coffee as a flash iced pour over so you can count on it for a summer afternoon refresher!

Reminder! This coffee is raw, you must roast it before brewing

Arrival Date: Available seasonally, blend contents vary based on current offerings.

Acidity & Brightness: Vibrantly bright with intense, juicy sweetness

Balance & Finish: Moderately balanced and fairly clean finish

Body & Texture: Full body and silky-to-creamy texture

Flavors: Raspberry, strawberry, tangerine, grape, dark chocolate and a hint of spice

Grade: Blend of Grade 1, SHB and SHG coffees

Processing: Blend of anaerobic fermentation and conventional natural process

Blend Components: Natural processed coffees from Central America and Africa

Recommended Roast Range: City to Full City (light to medium)

We like this coffee best at City + (light-medium, or around the end of 1st crack), but it will perform well nearly anywhere in the Light to Medium spectrum. Lighter roasts accent bright acidity and bring out some florals as well as more of a fresh fruit vibe. Medium roasts will lose brightness in favor of body as well as bringing out more rounded sweetness creating more of a candied fruit profile. In general if your cup isn’t as fruity as you’d like, roast lighter. Also, we found the flavors more vibrant when roasting hot and fast, hitting first crack with lots of momentum making the crack very active. If the cup is too intense, slow your roast down a notch and stretch the roast time out just a bit. Remember that when it comes to stretching the roast, a little goes a long way, crashes lead to dull cups! Final Note: as the current version of this blend has an anaerobic natural in it, we recommend a lengthy rest time for this blend, 10-14 days.

These coffees are all sourced from our current offerings and while the selections are seasonal, we don’t source anything “just for blending”. So you can bet the coffees in this blend meet all our standard criteria for transparency and quality!
