Jerome Street Blend gets its name from the address of our warehouse, where Len brews up fresh coffee every day for himself, our workers, and any guests who come to visit. The idea behind Jerome Street Blend is to have a go-to coffee using our best easily available beans, partly to keep the demanding "troops" on the packing room happy (they get spoiled easily) and also impress guests.
As our "opportunistic house blend" we revise it periodically based on which coffees we have that fit the bill in providing a uniquely delicious blend while being plentiful and easy to produce. We have just revised the previous formula, which was based on Sumatra Lintong as the primary Arabica, because we are having increasing difficulty sourcing and sorting that origin. Len worked on the new formula for a week before we all decided that a new winner was born! Enjoy.
NOTE: We just roasted the last of the previous formula based on Sumatra Lintong. You can purchase bags from this lot by selecting "Medium - Previous Lintong Formula" (while the supply lasts) or to select the new formula, choose "Harlequin Roast (Two Temperature) - New Formula".
Jerome Street Blend is currently made from three regional traditional coffees with long heritage:
- Nicaragua Matagalpa Catimor is an heirloom variety (subtype of Arabica) with high cupping scores
- Costa Rica Estate Catuai Arabica beans won two Golden Bean USA awards in 2016
- Dalat Peaberry Robusta reaches the back palate and adds chocolatey smoothness; prized ingredient in award-winning Italian blends
The result is an exceptionally well-rounded coffee with excellent aroma and bright profile. Notes of citrus, chocolate, caramel. A great choice for serving to guests and superb as espresso, with generous crema. Good hot or iced; stores well in the fridge for turning into iced coffee later.
Jerome Street Blend is one of our most popular office coffees. It goes over very well as a staple, gourmet, everyday coffee that doubles as an exciting espresso. It seems to keep everybody happy!
8 oz, Medium roast (previous formula) or Harlequin (new formula) where we actually roast the Catimor a step lighter than than the other two coffees, so you will see color variance in the whole bean version. Please select whole bean or drip grind.
