October’s Coffee of the Month- Boo Brew!

Boo Brew- Brazil Dark Roast

Our Boo Brew is back for October! This delicious dark roast is the perfect complement to a blustery fall day.

Bean Notes: Our Brazilian roasts are some of our best selling coffees. With bright, caramel tones and rich flavors, this coffee is a delicious addition to the daily routine.

Roast Notes: When our Brazilian Cerrado coffee is roasted to a darker level, the bean develops into a beautiful, dark chocolate color. Our Brazilian coffee is roasted at a higher temperature, allowing for a rich, smoky flavor to rise to the surface of each bean. This provides a similar brightness in the flavor, which also brings out rich, nutty tones.

Country Notes: This month our Boo Brew comes from the Cerrado region of Brazil. Cerrado means “closed” or “inaccessible”, and has earned its nickname from the closed canopy of the rainforest. This region has earned a unique reputation as being one of the few areas in the world where fire and the surrounding environment have found a way to co-exist. Fire is constantly purging the land and putting nutrients back into the soil, while the rest of the area continues to flourish.

May 2011’s Coffee of the Month – Peru Light and Dark Roast

Our “Coffee of the Month” for May, 2011 is a wonderful blend of light and dark roasted Peruvian beans.

Country Notes:
One of the highest in elevation in the region, this Peru coffee bean has sweet, fruity tones that lend towards a naturally sweet cup. Our Peru is a light bodied coffee, which gives great flavor and taste to each cup. This coffee is great any time of the day and will complement every meal.

That description still holds true with this special blend of roasts. The only addition I would make to that description is the added amount of complexity from the combination of a Light Roast coffee and a Dark Roast coffee.

Roast Notes:
At CICR, we get so caught up in coffees that have a “strength” in flavor or provide the drinker with a “rich” cup of coffee, that the Peru often gets overlooked. Peru, while not having a super deep, dark flavor, has a wonderfully mellow tone and smooth taste. When I’m eating a meal, I want my coffee to taste great, but not compete with what I’m enjoying. The natural sweetness and subtle flavors of this Peru blend will complement any meal.

Country Notes: Peru is a beautiful country with a diverse landscape. It is bordered by Ecuador and Colombia to the north, Brazil and Bolivia to the east, and Chile to the south. The estimated population of Peru is 30 million people (2011), and the two national languages are Spanish and Quechua. Peru is home to many people groups today and was the native land of the Incas.
