BERT'S BREAKFAST BLEND #263
Our Dark, Shipworthy Breakfast Blend
Want to be notified when it's back?
Today I’m sipping Captain Bert’s Breakfast Blend, one of the staple roasts that has buoyed Lighthouse Roasters’ reputation for over 25 years. Darker than the usual breakfast blend, Bert’s is a Central American and Sumatran mix: the Central American brings body, heft, and a smooth nutty chocolate; the Sumatran its earthy complexity. It’s a hard coffee to describe, because it “tastes like coffee”. The type of coffee that’s heady, aromatic and dark, easy to throw into a French press, maybe heat up some milk in the microwave, and settle into the morning. A good breakfast blend, roasted a few ticks lighter than a traditional espresso blend, this is the lighthouse of the coffee world, shining a beacon of flavor and welcoming us to the day.
If you’re a dark-roast lover, stock your home with Bert’s Breakfast Blend, one of my favorite dark-roasted Seattle staples. May your own journey through the next few weeks be smooth sailing and perfectly caffeinated.
