“The Verano blend is made up of 50% Indian and 50% Honduras coffee.
Sourced from Kerkeicoondah Estate in the Chikmagalur district of Karnataka, this farm is thoughtfully managed by the Mammen family for three generations. The traditional shade-growing method is used and coffee is inter-cropped with other spices that yield a complex flavor profile.
For this blend, the coffee is roasted light to keep the citrus acidity with a well-developed body. It adds the brightness and cardamom sweetness for the summer blend.
Café Organico Marcala, S.A. (COMSA) is a cooperative of more than 1,500 coffee producers. Known as Finca Humana (the Human Farm), living in harmony with nature is the foundational philosophy of the COMSA producer-members. They put a huge emphasis on education, training, innovation, and development of sustainable agricultural practices and consistent quality coffee production.
The coffee is roasted to a medium level and lends the sweet base note and silky texture to the blend.”
