This year is the return of the Krampus Blend, first sold way back in 2013, but on a hiatus these past 7 years. This year's blend is unique for a number of reasons. First, it is comprised completely of natural processed coffees.
The Brasil was grown by Marco Antonio Fernandes in the Minas Gerais region, it contributes loads of the chocolate character along with nuttiness, and brown sugar sweetness.
The natural process Ethiopia Limmu was grown by Ibrahim Huessin on his farm Burka Gudina. The Limmu brings all the dried fruit notes, from fresh dates, to dried mission figs, and flame raisin.
Lastly is a naturally processed Robusta from Sajonia Estate, in the sparsely settled southeast of the Jinotega growing region. This coffee being a robusta brings a huge body to the blend, lending a creamy and rich texture. it brings yet more baker's chocolate, more almonds and loads of sweet spice notes.
This coffee is a hard hitting medium dark blend that works in just about any brewing method you can throw at it. It is a dark, punchy, rich drip coffee, it makes a monster shot of espresso, and a smooth, rich, creamy cold brew.
