A combination of African and Central American beans, the Liberty Blend celebrates the “melting pot” quality that gives our United States vitality.
The Liberty Blend is intentionally mixed and roasted to be bold, the way we’d like all coffee to be. It begins with a refreshing balance of the best beans from Central America and Africa, and ends with a flavor only roasting in America can provide.
The specific flavors of this blend will vary from season to season, as all good coffees do, with coffee farming and cultivation ever changing throughout the year. But the essence of American craftsmanship will always ring true in this blended roast.
Life, Liberty Blend, and the pursuit of happiness…
Our first blend, Liberty Blend, came as a request from our friends at Liberty Alliance. They wanted a coffee that their staff could agree on—one that wasn’t too dark or too light. In their honor, we decided to highlight the spirit of traditional American virtues: independence, freedom, and democracy.
The idea of the Liberty Blend was somewhat daunting. We wanted a coffee dedicated to American ideals. We wanted a drink worthy of our Founding Fathers; a drink we’d gladly brew in the great American tradition of consuming coffee—going all the way back to the Boston Tea Party.
After countless roasting sessions and tasting cup after cup of coffee, we settled on a combination of medium-dark roasted and dark roasted beans (we suspect James Madison made his the same way). The resulting blend is technically known as a melange, but we still call it a blend; one in keeping with the diverse and blended nature of our favorite constitutional republic.
