Thunderhead (Our 2018 Summer Blend)

Regular price $16.00

Our Summer 2018 Summer Seasonal Blend.

A soft and full bodied blend of our favorite Latin American coffees.

Thunderhead was created out of a love of coffees with soft mouthfeels and fully developed roundness, while still shying away from ‘roasty’ flavors. By tweaking certain aspects of our roast curves and air temperatures in the drum during our batches, we can enhance the softness and brew coffees with pillowy cloud-like textures, hence the name Thunderhead. The double bonus from this technique is enhanced solubility, that is, our espressos are more syrupy and our filtered brews have higher extraction rates, all at the same brew ratios.

Thanks to local artist James Von Fossan for the beautiful art.

General Brewing Instructions

Open tab
Brewing great coffee at home can be easy.  The essential tools are critical to making it happen.  They include:
  • Filtered water.  Spring water is ideal.  Removing chloride, sulfur, and iron is essential.
  • A burr grinder.  The more even the coffee particles, the better the coffee.  Burr grinders, whether manual or electric, will do a better job than "whirly-blade" grinders.  Invest in a burr grinder.  Your taste buds (and coffee roaster) will thank you.
  • A scale.  I know using a scale can seem a bit like you're doing something you shouldn't be.  Trust me, you can only brew consistently great coffee with a scale.  Water and coffee are hard to measure without one.
  • Clean equipment.  Properly cleaning your equipment is the only way to avoid stale and rancid coffee flavors entering your cup.  Please keep your equipment clean.  The sooner and more often you clean your gear, the easier it will be in the long run.  Add it to your ritual and thank us later.
  • Delicious and freshly roasted Color Coffee
Now that you have the tools, the rest is easy.  There are infinite numbers of ways to brew coffee.  Here are some of our favorites, with links to coffee professionals who we admire and trust:
