Have you ever tried blending your two subscription roasts together to make a blend? Try blending different precentages to see how the two roasts work together. Sometimes they work well together and other times the flavor characteristics can cancel each other out. In this case, the Timor and Ethiopia coffees are worth a shot to blend. I would start with a lower percentage of Timor to Ethiopia. Maybe even a 10% Timor to 90% Ethiopia. This is an interesting experiment with creating a Mokha Java blend of your own! If you're not a Bi-Weekely Roasted Coffee Pairing subscriber, you can order these coffees below, while we have them in stock.
Ethiopia Kaffa - Michiti Cooperative City+
There is lots of lemon in this cup. From fresh juicy lemonaide to creamy lemon curd, without being too bright. Cinnamon, brown sugar and vanilla also form as a balance in this Ethiopia. The body is juicy and leaves a refreshing sensation on the palate. The finish has a toasted cocoa bittersweetness.
Timor Eraulu Launa Villages Full City
This Timor roast has a lot of sweet chocolate while it's hot in the cup. As it cools down a bit, the ripe fruits come out alongside the chocolate. Banana, green apple, and tropical fruits. The acidity reveals how clean this coffee is. It's actually quite surprising how well the crisp acidity has held on with this coffee at a Full City roast!
