Our House Blend Organic Fair Trade has the velvety mouthfeel of a red wine with chocolate, spice, and woody notes. It has mild acidity and a silky body. It is a great everyday coffee and is a particularly good caffeinated dessert.
Roast Color: Dark
Cupping Notes: Chocolate, Red Wine, Spicy
Story: When we started working with Transfair USA back in the late 90's we expanded our product offerings to include Fair Trade certified coffees. That was when we created our House Blend Organic Fair Trade. We wanted to create a great house coffee for our wholesale customers in the area who were passionate about Fair Trade coffee. This blend of two Latin American Fair Trade coffees has been a favorite of our Berkeley wholesale customers over the years and has become our most popular Fair Trade blend with all of our wholesale and retail coffee lovers.
McLaughlin is the best! I've been loving this blend for years. Great company and great coffee!
Doesn't need sugar
I drink my coffee black but always with sugar, so I do not consider myself a coffee purist. It is a habit born out of necessity since I did not have access to good quality coffee in my early years. I made a travel mug of coffee from these beans and forgot to add sugar to it. I did not realize this until I had my first sip at work. Ordinarily, I would find that undrinkable but this was so smooth, I could actually drink AND still enjoy it. I do not recall any other coffee that does this for me.
