The Sermon has always been a new take on an old classic. A round body, bittersweet chocolate notes, and a berry sweetness are what we consistently strive for. Each season, we taste dozens of offerings to find the perfect combination to achieve this end.
This season, we present a three-coffee blend hailing from South America and East Africa.
From Minas Gerais in Brazil comes a naturally-processed lot responsible for contributing body and baking chocolate flavors. Joining it from Southern Ethiopia’s Guji Highlands cooperative is a selection of naturally processed heirloom-variety coffees, sun-dried to maximize ripe fruit complexity. Last but not least - the glue that ties the blend together - from the ABADES producer group in Nariño, Colombia comes a Catuai lot representative of the milk chocolate flavors and citric acidity for which this region is lauded.
Sermon Espresso works perfectly as your everyday espresso or as a brewed coffee. This version we have been liking pulled fast and medium in output.
