Light Roast Pick: Kenya Ichamama #1267

Roaster: Camber Coffee

Tasting Notes: Passionfruit, Butter Cookie, Sun-Dried Tomato

Pairs Well With: Cream Cheese Danish

Why We Recommend It: Like the Ichamama River, this coffee winds and twists in surprising directions. Bright notes of passionfruit lead into a finish like browned-butter cookie. You may notice a sweet hint of sun-dried tomato, a flavor especially unique to Kenyan coffee.

Medium Roast Pick: Autumn Spice Blend #875

Roaster: Broadcast Coffee Roasters

Tasting Notes: Cacao, Baking Spice, Vanilla, Dried Fruit

Pairs Well With: Apple Cider Donuts

Why We Recommend It: This medium roast tastes like warm, freshly-baked spice cake, nutty cacao nib, and a touch of dried fruit. Vanilla-bean finish adds a dollop of whipped cream to your cup. These rich, spicy flavors remind us of the best parts of the season: the changing leaves, Halloween costumes, taking our favorite sweaters out of storage… not to mention football season (Go Hawks!).

Dark Roast Pick: Bearded Lady #58

Roaster: Longshoreman’s Daughter

Tasting Notes: Molasses, Cocoa, Ginger, Cherry, Nutty

Pairs Well With: Dark Chocolate Brownies 

Why We Recommend It: Treat yourself to a rich cup of chocolaty-cocoa powder, sweet molasses, almonds, and deep red cherry. Our latest pick from Longshoreman's Daughter is roasted to a robust medium-dark profile for a satisfying and decadent cup. Grown certified organic, the beans in this blend come from small growers' co-ops in Guatemala and Ethiopia.
