Mr. Taggart's Blend: Fire-Roasted Coffee
Awesomely delicious fire-roasted campfire-style coffee! Full of life and flavor, for when you have IMPORTANT tasks at hand... like working up a Number 6 on the people of Rock Ridge! ("Ridin' into town a'whompin' and a'wumpin' every living thing... except the womenfolk, of course!") Our cowboy-themed coffee is fresh-air roasted outside on a rotisserie grille designed for coffee roasting.
Unlike coffees typically produced indoors in drum roasters using natural gas (with its additives) our outdoor-roasted coffee is bathed in a continuous flow of fresh air and clean flame. It really impresses people with a unique flavor profile unlike anything they have tried before. The roast has natural variations within the batch and this broadens the flavor profile and adds complexity - ripening in the cup as you marvel at the subtle changes it goes through.
We created Mr. Taggart's Blend from high-altitude Honduran and Brazilian Arabicas and a touch of Peaberry Robusta for the back-palate edge. It's a natural Harlequin (multi-temp roast) due to variations in density of the bean varieties. It has a deep chocolate tone and notes of butter and caramel. What's not to love?
Choose bean or drip grind and 8 ounce or NEW 12-oz "Mongo'-size bag!
Our campfire coffee series pays homage to Hollywood Western comedies. Mr. Taggart is the camp boss of a band of ne'er-do-wells doing the wishes of an evil governor (played by Mel Brooks) who is trying to run a new railroad through the town of Rock Ridge without the townsfolks' consent. In the infamous campfire scene where the "boys" have consumed just a few too many baked beans for comfort, Mr. Taggart refuses to give them more. However, if you look closely at the firepit in this scene, you see a funny anachronism of a relatively sophisticated modern stainless steel coffee brewer sitting in the center. We figure that's because Mr. Taggart (played by Slim Pickens) actually has a sensitive side and loves his gourmet coffee. :-)

Love this heady brew!
This is a strong brew but not acidic or bitter. The first sip tastes of campfire then then mellows into a wonderful full body coffee. I bought multiple bags to use for my go-to every morning wake up. Luv it!

The Araku Valley of India
India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
