Blueprint Blend Lineup

Our blends offer a consistent taste profile from bag to bag over the seasons without sacrificing quality or transparency. They provide a stable experience for drinkers or wholesalers who don't want to be presented with unexpected flavor or brewing experiences.

This new lineup of blends, announced in November of 2022, allows us to bring focused, transparent sourcing to our blend lineup while improving the flavor consistency of each blend. We've done this by minimizing the number of coffees that we will source to be base components for each blend. In addition, this minimization of components allows us to roast each one individually to its optimal flavor profile before we blend it with other components. As a result, the finished blend allows all beans to achieve their peak extraction at the same grind profile.

In short, fewer components; more focus; increased consistency.

Each of our blends is made up of a combination of three components. We refer to the three components as BRIGHT, BALANCED, and NATURAL.
