I'll admit it: my favorite coffees are the ones that bring a little bit of dessert into breakfast. In this spirit, I’m excited to introduce Portage Blend, a creamy medium roast from Rainier Coffee Roasters, our newest partner. Don’t be fooled, this cup isn’t super-sweet, but its low acidity and toasty, caramelized notes make a truly decadent mix. We taste lots of toffee in this roast, with the mellow, dark sweetness of dried dates and a long, custardy, crème brûlée finish.
Rainier Coffee Company proudly defines their roasts as “bold coffees for bold adventures”. The names of their blends and all parts of Seattle’s natural landscape, which echo their commitment to source their top-quality beans in a transparent and eco-friendly way. Portage Blend is named for a historic area of Lake Union that’s home to a large community of houseboats! Come to think of it, this blend has a lot in common with the houseboat. It’s cozy and homey, close to nature, and unmistakably Seattle: a fun touch of romantic luxury within an everyday staple.
Luckily, you don’t have to move into a houseboat to enjoy little sip of Seattle’s adventurous lifestyle. You don’t need a kitchen torch for this crème brûlée, either. If you’re looking for a decadent take on a dependable medium roast, reserve a bag of Portage Blend from Rainier Coffee Roasters, and let this toasty, creamy coffee bring a touch of brûlée to your day.
