This blend started as a one-day fundraiser blend to raise money for some local friends in Wolfeboro, NH, who introduced us to Best Buddies in 2016. In the process of its creation, however, and because of our ongoing involvement with Best Buddies in New Hampshire, we decided to make this coffee available through our website and to donate a portion of each sale to Best Buddies New Hampshire.
This blend is comprised of a dark-roast Brazil and a medium roast Guatemala, and the forward notes are of rich chocolate with a full body, and as the cup cools the acidity of the Guatemala emerges with hints of subtle citrus notes of lime. The overall cup is extremely well-balanced and sweet, and upon it’s local introduction we’ve received nothing but very positive feedback.
Now, besides tasting exceptional, this coffee will be an on going fundraising coffee, and a portion of each bag purchased will be donated directly to Best Buddies. We’ve included a brief description here of what the program does, and we encourage you to follow this link to the Best Buddies website for further details. Please enjoy this coffee knowing you’re contributing to a world of good with its purchase.
