Each week, Trade’s resident coffee experts taste a wide variety of new and seasonal coffees arriving fresh to our office. The cupping is our QC Team Kayla Baird and Maciej Kasperowicz’s chance to asses the flavors of each roast to guarantee each one you try is a perfect match (or at the very least, tastes as you’d expect!).
This Monday's Fresh List brings a taste of summer with it. Wintertime isn’t typically when we see new African coffees hit our roaster’s menus, so when they do, we take notice! Delicious roasts from Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia, and Kenya all landed on our QC table, each with its own unique flavors. A bit of bright fruitiness is exactly the thing we need to bust through those winter blues.
