03 Feb Southside Blend
When the idea of developing a blend that celebrated our Southside Chicago roots, I set out to develop the boldest blend possible without compromising sweetness and balance. Discovering a coffee from Colombia that has been fermented in beer yeast for a few days was the key. This new style of processing at the farm level will become more prevalent in specialty coffee over the years to come as it allows the farmers to create new and interesting flavor profiles from the same coffee beans.
With this blend we showcase the beautiful diversity of the Southside of Chicago. Our home.
