B’Cause Blend was inspired by the fruit-forward flavor characteristics found in traditional Mocha Java-style blends. The foundation of this blend is a dried-in-the-fruit natural processed coffee from the Telamo Cooperative located in the Sidama region of Ethiopia. Small, intensely fruity lots are blended together to create this type, which contributes a foundation of berry-like fruit to the blend. This component is complemented by two washed coffees, one from Kenya and the other from the Antioquia region in Colombia. The bright and assertive Kenyan coffee helps intensify the delicious fruit flavors in the blend, while the smooth and spicy Colombia coffee adds notes of chocolate and provides balance. The roast profile and solid medium roast degree are designed to highlight fruit flavors and caramel-like sweetness.
