Fireside

Fireside is Here!

We chose two coffees for this year’s Fireside blend.

Peru Norandino is a full-bodied coffee with notes of pepper and cinnamon. Nicaragua Segovia is a lively, sweet coffee with distinct vanilla bean. Together in a darker roast, these two coffees make up what we think is the best Fireside yet. Smooth, creamy, and with a warming spicy note that is perfect for those short autumn and winter days.

Peru Norandino is sourced from Cooperativa Agrícola de Servicios Múltiples Norandino. Coffee producers receive training and technical assistance in land management, irrigation, organic farming, productivity, quality control, and reforestation programs. Norandino also seeks to improve the quality of life for coffee producers and their families through projects promoting commercial diversification. Nicaragua Segovia is shade grown in the Segovia region of Nicaragua by members of PRODECOOP, a cooperative of over 2000 families.

We hope you enjoy this year’s holiday roast as much as we do!

Fireside

FiresideWeekends away in cabins, community and family, evergreen forests, mist-covered snowcapped mountains, Puget Sound ferry rides, and warm apple cider with bourbon are the inspiration for Fireside.  It is an homage and accouterment to the beauty of our region. For 2012, the blend also celebrates our first full year of sourcing and roasting our own coffee!

We searched high and low to develop a profile for this special release to be both adventurous and classic. With seasonality as our guidepost, we picked out two plush and lively coffees hailing from Cauca in the southern part of Colombia.  The first coffee provides a base of chocolate and apple cider notes while the other component brings the additional spice and body.  We then tailored a roast profile that would draw out these delicious flavors and also add an underlying nuttiness to the cup.

This coffee is best enjoyed amongst friends, preferably where it’s cold enough to see your breath.

Enjoy the holidays and stay tuned for more seasonal releases.
