Every few weeks, we create a new coffee to feature.
The seasonal coffee is not flavoured or decaffeinated and is always delicious. It could be a single-origin (from one country or even part of a small lot from one farm) or a blend of special beans from a couple places. One thing is for sure, each one is a limited edition. It's only around for a few weeks so try it out while you can!
An African blend to fuel your adventures, or your dreams…
To make the Nomad blend we go to the birthplace of coffee in East Africa. From Kenya we have a fabulous coffee that is grown in a mountainous area just a little north of Nairobi. This coffee is paired with a delicious FairTrade organic coffee from a coop in Ethiopia’s south-central Sidamo region.
Both beans are lightly* roasted to highlight their zesty, sweet flavours and syrupy feel. Together these beans create a somewhat spicy and aromatic cup.
We prefer drinking Nomad black and think it’s best as a drip or filter coffee - including Aeropress, Chemex, pour overs of all sorts and your basic drip coffeemaker. If you’re an espresso drinker, you’ll probably like it best as a macchiato instead of a latte. Too much milk will overwhelm the taste of this coffee.
* No worries, Nomad is a lighter roast but this isn’t a super-light-weirdly-fruity coffee.
We stole the name for our Nomad coffee from the newsletter of the Ontario Norton Owners club. (The logo is stolen from their Dark Cafe Ride - you’ll hear more about that next spring!) We love vintage bikes and admire the people who keep them running and on the road.
We know you love a great coffee. We are proud to provide this delicious Nomad blend to fuel your adventures… or your dreams.
