About the Blend
The Blues Blend features a mix of Guatemalan and Ethiopian beans. Coffee beans, grown in Guatemala typically have tasting notes indicating a full body and a rich chocolatey-cocoa flavor, and a toffee-like sweetness. Ethiopia's beans are known for their bright fruit and floral flavors. This blend of beans creates a nice, smooth balanced coffee that has blueberry undertones, and will pair well with a breakfast muffin of your choice.
