Look on the BRIGHTSIDE

17.00

A riff on the classic blends of the 19th century. This coffee will have you lookin' to the BRIGHTSIDE of coffee future. A successful combination of Fruity Natural Peru, Minty Fresh Java, and Classic Brazil. We find this coffee to be refreshing, awesome texturally, and the key to a never-ending summertime feeling!

Story Time: When Lion Coffee started in the mid-1900’s they were combining Mohka, Java & Rio in proportions to their roasted coffee as availability would allow. A methodology that was all function and no form, we hope to reclaim the best of the tasting notes from that era. Many persons described it as the first coffee with restrained fruit-tones and a wonder of wistful balance. The juxtaposition of including 60% Natural Process coffee is the key to a sweet and fruited cup. While it is certainly a cleaner process than one might have found in yesteryear, this Peruvian gem of a coffee comes via JUMARP Co-Op. It is similar in grading to the Mohka exports of that era. Well processed and graded, but of a mixture of cultivars in the Utcubamba river. On to the 25% of the blend, our Java counterpart is another co-op coffee from Klasik. They are known for Sunda Hejo grade micro-lots. This coffee has the unique flavors you’ll love from a terroir and variety laden java coffee. Lime Leaf, Mint finish, and a characteristic intensity help pin this coffee down. Finally the 15% of Brazil coming from bourbon coffees lends a chocolatey and lemon-like acidity to provide a base to an otherwise wild combo of coffees. Try it as a pour-over, espresso shot, or anyway you like. We believe it will hold up.
