Barriques blends have rock-solid flavor and intensity every day of the year. Our blending secret? No shortcuts! We create blends around specific flavor profiles and work every day to keep them tasting their best. We manage blends the rigorous, old-fashioned way, tasting and tweaking to maintain peak flavor, intensity and balance. We use great beans, too – the same sustainably-grown Heirloom Arabicas as our single origin coffees. Blend with less intense ‘blender beans’ to save a few cents? Not here.
The Eye Opener is a blend of Heirloom Arabicas from both the New World as well as Africa, including Ethiopia Yrgacheffe. It is a bright, energizing breakfast-type blend, that has a pleasant medium body, clean sweet flavor and a brisk coffee aroma.
