Snow Leopard is a seasonal blend that gives us the opportunity to take single origin coffees we enjoy on their own and combine them in unique ways to create something delicious!
This latest rendition showcases an outstanding, bright coffee from the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is produced by small-holder farmers of the Lake Kivu region in the far east of the country, and processed at the Kavisa washing station. The coffee’s crisp acidity and fruit-forward character provides the foundation that the blend is built around. To provide balance we included a richly nuanced coffee from Finca Joya Grande in Santa Rosa, Guatemala, which adds body and deeper-toned flavors of brown sugar and spice. Finally, a natural-processed coffee from Ethiopia affectionately known as Ardi completes the blend. We have been sourcing Ardi for many years and its rich body and intensely fruity character reminiscent of berries has made it into a crowd favorite. We had the privilege of visiting the farmers who produce Ardi and see first-hand the high quality, oversight and care that goes into this natural sun-dried coffee. The blend comes together in such a way that all the best characteristics of each component coffee come through, creating a fruit-forward, complex and balanced cup of coffee!
This blend will only be available for a limited time -- as long as supplies of the component coffees last. Due to the increasing popularity of Snow Leopard, we now offer this evolving seasonal blend on an ongoing basis.
