Staff Picks: End of Summer Favorites

Let these seasonal sensations gently guide you into fall.
by Kayla Baird | August 24, 2021

We love discovering new coffees at home as much as you do! So, we’re letting you in on Team Trade’s current favorites with our weekly series, Staff Picks.

I love summer and everything that comes with it. While our beach days may be limited — and stone fruits are no longer at peak — summer isn’t over yet! As the season winds down, these coffees are making a lasting impression on me.

Juicy blackcurrant and pink grapefruit are balanced with a lovely tropical sweetness — kind of like tamarind.

Sometimes I just want sweet and balanced coffees with comforting and familiar flavors, and this one has been my go-to. Reminiscent of a chocolate fudgesicle, with notes of candied honey and an orange-like acidity, this is the perfect breakfast coffee.

Steady State Santa Maria ($21.20)

This Ethiopian coffee is naturally processed, and reminds me of a tea made with watermelon and blueberries, with a bright blood orange acidity. Try this fruity favorite on ice!
