Jaguar Espresso Fair Trade Organic
Jaguar is a complex espresso blend that combines organic and Fair Trade certified coffees from the world’s major growing regions: Latin America, East Africa and Indonesia. With this blend we take a new world approach to a traditional-style espresso. Our goal is to develop flavors of fruit, dark chocolate and spice that result in an espresso sweet enough to taste great on its own, while maintaining enough richness and intensity to stand up to milk.
A fully washed coffee from Latin America is the foundation of the blend. Like most agricultural products, coffee is seasonal, so throughout the crop year the origin country changes to ensure freshness but, we always source coffees that provide clarity and sweetness. For complexity we add dry processed coffee from the Sidama region of Ethiopia which adds flavors of berries and bittersweet chocolate. Wet-hulled coffee produced by the Ketiara Cooperative in Sumatra’s Gayo Mountain region rounds out the blend. Ketiara is a women-led group that is committed to producing high quality coffee and empowering women of the local community. This coffee’s classic Sumatran character perfectly complements the blend’s other components by adding body and flavors of spice, resulting in a rich, full flavored espresso.
