autumn roast


Ah, autumn. The perfect season to linger over a great cup of coffee. Today, we are pleased to bring you the fourth and final seasonal roast of 2009. We hope you’ve enjoyed the roasts this year and want to thank you for your support.

from your roaster:

For each this joy+ride offering, I acquire several of the season’s best coffee samples, taste them blind and select the top ones. Sheri tastes the final round, and we select our favorite to feature as the special offering.

This season, my favorites were two coffees from Kenya. Each had lush fruity notes and a clean, bright finish. Kagumo Coop has sweet notes of spiced golden raisins with flavors of cranberry and cinnamon in the finish, perfect for a holiday roast.

Kagumo Coop coffee comes from East Africa Kenya’s Nyeri region (north of Nairobi). Kenya coffees are sold through the impeccable government-run auction lot process where the finest coffees are bid on by international buyers sold at the highest prices. Kagumo is a small cooperative within the Agathi Farmers Cooperative Society that has their own producing mill.

For our final roast of the season, I selected new packaging to maintain your coffee’s freshness. These bags protect the coffee from the staling effects of air, light and moisture. Once roasted, the coffee is bagged and sealed immediately to retain freshness. After you cut the bag open, tightly roll the bag down and clip shut after each use. This will remove most of the air within the bag.

Here’s to a Happy Holiday with friends and family. We hope you enjoy the coffee.

As always, I’d love to hear your feedback on this seasonal roast.
