As the summer draws to a close, the sun also sets on one of our favorite summer blends: Kuma Coffee’s Sun Bear. Luckily, there’s still a chance to catch the final rays! Sun Bear, one of our most-loved annual blends, is a fruit-meets-chocolate cup of African and South American beans, with a light, refreshing body and juicy flavors of ripe berries and purple grapes. As sparkling and bright as the summer sunshine, this cup is a real sip of the season: what better way to hold onto it?
Kuma Coffee is one of those true Seattle coffee gems, a small roaster who does what he does best and allows his work to speak for itself. They began roasting in 2007, for farmers’ markets and friends, and grew into an iconic local institution. Kuma’s coffees are small lots, all directly sourced by the founder, and known for their distinctive, sugary-sweet profiles. In this light roast, you’ll find a bouquet of florals on the front end, a lingering sugar on the finish, and a super sweet, juicy body. When chilled, the fruit notes remind me of grape popsicles… the kind you don’t have to share with the kids!
We’ve enjoyed this blend all season long, and now is the time to capture those final rays. As long as these beans are in your kitchen, it’s still summertime! Act quickly and reserve one of the final few bags of Sun Bear, Kuma’s best-selling iced coffee blend. Summer love can’t last forever… but there’s still time to make the most of it.
