THE COFFEE ROASTING COMPANY

Our Specialty Post-Roast Blends

Blending is an art in and of itself. All beans don't roast to the same level in the same time, so why would other roasters treat their blends as a single roast? Alternatively, we ensure each bean is correctly roasted -- maximizing its potential for flavor prior to blending. This practice my not be seen as practical or cost effective by many commercial roasters, but like artistic masterpieces it is achievable and we believe worthwhile. The combining of various coffees not only brings out the individual character of the different types and origins, but also achieves something special that is greater even than the sum of its beans. Our blends offer unique and rewarding coffee drinking experiences to please the most discriminating tastes.

The Coffee Roasting Company provides these fresh-roasted beans for retail or wholesale both at its Louisville, Colorado, location and online. Specific coffee beans are offered both in green and roasted form, and both by specific beans or in blends.

Bold intensity / Heavy fruited notes, syrupy thick body 

Compare to: 

Classic dry-process Ethiopia character, with tons of fruit and great body, with no off musty or fermented notes. 

While there is a little uncertainty about the origin of this lot, there is no uncertainty about the cup; it is wonderful. The dry fragrance has very intense fruit character; dried mango and peach in the light roasts with a heavy overlay of chocolate as you approach Full City+ levels. Adding the hot water the wet aromatics are a veritable fruit potpourri; hibiscus, orange peel, rose hips, dried apricot. The cup has the sweetness of a tropical fruit salad. Peach and apricot dominate, with mango, passionfruit, guava and orange in the mix. At City+ roast the fruited notes are so sweet and intense. As you roast darker, an overlay of chocolate and caramelized sugars comes into play. The nature of the dry-process technique means a few under-ripe fruits usually sneak past the pickers, showing up as "quakers" in the roast. There are much fewer of them in this dry-processed coffee than the multitude of samples I have cupped this year, but you can remove some of them and improve the cup a bit. It's always instructive to brew a cup of them, to learn the distinct peanut note they give to the cup, and astringent mouthfeel.
