When crafting our Happy Medium blend, we approached it with the following goals in mind
• A very balanced flavor profile with noticeable sweetness
• A coffee that can be brewed with various brew methods and still maintain a balanced flavor profile
• A balance of flavors including brown sugar and plum
• A three dimensional profile of: sweetness, fruit, and balance
When we set out to create this blend, we began looking for a coffee origin that would provide us with a coffee that exhibited a noticeable sweetness under a medium roast. After extensive trial and error, we discovered the amazing coffees that were being grown in Peru. As an origin, Peru has all the conditions necessary to produce world-class coffee: high elevation; prominence of good coffee varieties including: Typica, Bourbon, and Caturra; and a quality-focused movement among smallholder farmers, especially in cooperatives utilizing organic farming practices (plant husbandry). For all of these reasons, we decided to use a coffee from Peru as the base for this blend.
The second component of this blend is a high altitude coffee from Colombia, which is a very geographically diverse country producing coffee of exceptional quality. The high altitude causes the coffee berries (and seeds, or “beans” inside) to grow slower, allowing more complex flavors to develop. This coffee has been added to provide this blend with a subtle fruit note - very similar to the flavor of a plum. This ties in very nicely to the sweetness the Peru offers and creates an incredible balance of aroma and flavors in the cup.
