Breakfast Blend

Roast: Light roast

Cupping notes:  Smooth, even body, floral

This is a classic breakfast blend that is mild and smooth, with an inviting aroma to entice you in the morning! This full-bodied coffee is smooth as silk. This breakfast blend consists of a post blended combination of the light roasted San Pedro Costa Rica Tarrazu and dark roasted Mexico Chiapas.

Costa Rican coffees set the standard for washed (wet processed) bright Central American coffees in both the bean and at the mill. Costa Rican coffees are exceptionally high grown in amazing volcanic soil. These two factors come together to produce a very bright and very clean cup. The best Costas are the cups that develop a bit of berry fruitiness to compliment the straight-out brightness. Costa Rican coffees serve as an excellent bright single origin coffee and will definitely add life to various blends.

At the same time, Mexico adds a mild acidity, with a bit of sweetness to the blend.
