This blend has been renamed the “Wind and Water Blend” from it’s previous name, “Community Blend”, in celebration of the life of our previous Roastmaster, Paul Helbert, who worked for LRC way back in the very beginning of our business and later lost his battle to cancer. This was Paul’s favorite blend of all that he ever roasted for LRC, and we’ve taken his love of water and boating to rename this delicious blend in honor of his amazingly rich life.
This is a blend of South American and Indonesian coffees roasted to a medium-dark level and producing an incredible cup of coffee. Wind and Water is a blend rich in chocolatey notes throughout the cup, with some hints of nuts as it cools. It is charged with deep, rich flavor and is a coffee that is easy to sip and savor slowly.
Paul’s life was also rich and full of family and friends, and it was spent on the water and building small, personal watercraft as often as he could. That’s one of his own creations in the photo we’ve used for the label. Paul helped us get LRC off the ground and started, and we hope you’ll raise your cup to him as often as we do.
