- Moonbat Blend
Like it’s name suggests, we strive to make this blend a little left-of-center. We do this by combining coffees that are approachable and sweet, with just enough liveliness to keep things interesting. By using a roast profile that emphasizes sugar-browning, we showcase a classic full-bodied style of coffee while still leaving room for the uniqueness of each origin to show through. Seasonally updated like the rest of our offerings, with the same transparency we have based our reputation on.
Our latest version of Moonbat is a blend of thirds, with coffees from the regions of Acatenango, Guatemala; Western Highlands, Papua New Guinea; and Tarrazu, Costa Rica.
ORIGINS: Guatemala, Papua New Guinea, Costa Rica
REGIONS: Acatenango, Western Highlands, Tarrazu
PROCESS: Fully washed
NOTES: Black Cherry, Dark Chocolate, Baking Spice
NOTES ON BREWING
In the roaster, we develop Moonbat a little further to allow the natural sugars of the blend components to come to the forefront, keeping it approachable and easy to brew, while still vibrant enough to stand on its own, with or without milk. As a pour over, in order to bring out a touch more acidity, we recommend having a slightly longer pour time. With the Aeropress, a slightly slower plunge will result in a little more clarity in the cup. Expect a faster drawdown than with lighter coffees, so extend the pour time if you need to, to keep your total contact time within the right parameters. We find it to be a forgiving coffee on all brew methods, so play around!
