A very light roast, this clean, serene breakfast blend that is soft and sweet. Farm Girl is roasted light and features a light vanilla and caramel tone that comes out in the flavor, rounding out with a refreshingly mild and juicy sweetness.
Story behind the name: Farm Girl is an offering of sunshine and warm, Midwestern hospitality. This coffee is perfect for those crisp, relaxing winter mornings. Truly balanced but with a sweet, high toned acidity that sparkles.
A medium to dark roast, the John Brown blend is a polished coffee with a bold heart, rich character, spicy notes resembling sweet pipe tobacco and dark chocolate with a bittersweet, soft finish.
Story behind the name: During the 1800s, famed abolitionist John Brown took direct, and often dramatic, action to free slaves in the States. Arrested for treason and sentenced to death, Brown's dignified bearing in prison and at his trial moved many spectators. Ralph Waldo Emerson said that Brown's death would make the gallows as glorious as the cross.
A medium to dark roast, this espresso is extremely balanced, but playful, ranging from a deep cocoa and cardamom body to a candied, clementine sweetness. The components marry together to create a beautiful harmony of flavors while still having enough depth to play nicely with milk.
a medium dark roast, this unique coffee is decaffeinated using a Mountain Water Process method which ensures that no chemicals are used in the process. As an espresso, the shot has notes of rich drinking chocolate with hints of cinnamon in the finish.
