From there, Camilla and Ed cupped many different samples of coffees that they hoped would complement the Costa Rica Sonora Estate. After sampling coffees in various combinations for a couple of months, Camilla and Ed landed on the Ethiopia Suke Quto Washed. “The Costa Rica Sonora Estate offers a really bright and upfront acidity that lingers throughout the tasting experience, while notes of strawberry jam and kombucha lend a fun and wacky flavor profile,” Camilla explained. “The Ethiopia Suke Quto has a pleasant citrus acidity that settles nicely with floral and tropical notes.” Ed expressed how both coffees “stand out on their own and have a lot of character…. Since this is a blend of washed and natural coffees, there is a balance of acidity and body, with upfront fruit notes and subtle complexity.”
For Camilla, our Wonderblend “is a complete 180” from our staple Dharma Espresso Blend. Rather than trying to achieve classic coffee flavors, our Wonderblend is quirky, fruity, and bright. “The blend is fun, whimsical, and reminds me of spring,” says Camilla. Indeed, the coffee is a celebration of springtime and the vibrancy and vitality of the season. Colorful, fresh, and vivid, our Wonderblend is meant to transcend the typical coffee tasting experience and transport the drinker to a fanciful, flavor-rich world. A treat for any coffee drinker, our Wonderblend offers a surreal mix of surprise and familiarity, leaving you with flavors you know well but haven’t experienced in your daily coffee. Essentially, Wonderblend is wonder in a cup. We’re excited for you to enjoy it all season long!
