Wow! The first time we offered an anaerobic coffee, it sold out before we could blink — this rare type of coffee doesn’t come along very often. So when our friends at Broadcast told us they’d be releasing a special, limited lot in honor of Pride Month, we jumped at the chance to share an amazing coffee that will inspire you to be Loud and Proud all day long.
Loud and Proud is an Anaerobic Zambian Natural coffee, and it's definitely not shy on flavor: this coffee is a strawberry bomb in your mouth. At first sip, you'll be blown away by the big, berry-forward notes in this cup, tons of wild strawberry with a round, black cherry sweetness and a hint of citrus zest. After an initial burst of fruit, spiced notes follow, like cinnamon-dusted breakfast cereal. A silky cola-syrup flavor rounds out the finish, with a hint of that wine-like, fermenty sparkle that's so unique to anaerobic coffees.
Anaerobic coffees are still relatively new, the wild child coffees of the specialty scene— and we've never seen one from Zambia before. All coffees undergo some level of fermentation during processing, but anaerobic fermentation is unique because of its oxygen-constrained environment. The result is a complex, sparkly flavor profile that perfectly suits the full body and robust sweetness of a fruit-forward East African coffee.
As a gay-owned company, Broadcast Coffee has always strived to create a welcoming, inclusive environment for staff and visitors of every identity, orientation, and affiliation. In recognition of Pride month, Broadcast is donating $3 from every bag to two local LGBTQ+ non-profits, the Lambert House in Seattle and The Community Center in Boise, ID.
With big, sparkly notes of wild strawberries and fruity pebbles cereal, this Zambia Anaerobic Natural is a rainbow in a mug — but rainbows don't last forever. Anaerobic coffees are always small lots, and this limited release is bound to move fast. Reserve your bag of Broadcast Coffee's Zambia Anaerobic Natural while it's still available, and brew it with Pride.
