Where The Heck Did They Get The Beans for the Blend?
Good Question. We got them from a farm of course but not just any farms. We chose Hawaiian Kauai Estate Coffee as the base. A coffee known for its bright acidity, deep body and smooth finish and character. Why blend it then? Well we think it benefits from a coffee with a higher note, one that lingers on the palate and freshens the finish. Solution- a Papua New Guinea Estate coffee. Papua New Guinea to our minds is earthy but has unique fruit highlights that pair well with the Kauai. We also added a dark roasted Indonesian Estate for its smoky essence and depth. The result is a truly balanced “Once in a Lifetime, Limited Edition JavaMoose Exclusive” and we have only a very small amount of it. (Remember this is an experiment.)
(And here is the special coffee code for this blend....can you figure it out?)
Do I like it? Yes, very much and I am unanimous in that! Actually our cupping panel (Me, Glen, Stephen, Heather and Jeff) agree that this “Profound Blend “ is just that-PROFOUND! We would not offer it if it did not reach a certain pinnacle of blending craftsmanship. Unfortunately you will never get another chance to taste it. Once it’s gone it’s gone. Not our fault mind you, we will just never be able to get the exact same coffees again.
So how do you get yours? You go to any JavaMoose location this Friday and ask for “Profound Blend.” It is only available in single serve packages (60g) ground for automatic drip. This is because we expect it will be brewed and enjoyed right away and to make it available to as many customers as possible. In person shopping only please as we expect it to sell very quickly.
Next post I am going to ask you to comment on your experience with “Profound Blend.” People of a certain vintage will remember the pre-internet line “Keep those cards and letters coming.” That’s because we really do appreciate hearing from you and your opinion counts.
