2015 Holiday Blend Bag PicThis year, Black Powder is proud to bring you “Blend 21″…yes, one through twenty just didn’t have a well rounded cup. Some customers think we got this one right with the “best blend” we have ever created.

Primarily Medium-Dark roasted (12).

Beans: Micro-Lot Burundi, Sumatra, and African Beans

Roasted: Blend of medium and dark roasted prime coffee roasted individually and then blended in a proportion to derive a bright beginning and then a wonderful bold flavor cup with a hint of spice.

Varietals: Bourbon, Bergendahl, Kent, Java (limited: Djember, Ateng, Catimor)

Elevation: 1,400 – 2,000 meters (4,000-6,000 ft)

Cupping Notes: Molasses, with mild acidity with hints of Black Tea, Chocolate, Lemon, Blackberry

Roaster General Notes:  Spicy – Chocolate – Creamy/Dry finish

Majority of the beans are imported via Direct Trade to the USA by Café Imports. In Burundi, Kirema is in Kayanza, a small “cooperative,” has around 1,350 small farmers deliver cherry here. This is part of a Café Imports project where a quality premium is paid above the normal “market rate,” and this premium is paid directly back to the farmers.

The mountains of Burundi produce a deep fig and fruity coffee-almost a Malbec of a cup highlighted by a firm supporting acidity.
