Sweet Maria's offers a few pre-blended coffees for use as espresso and dark roast. There are pros and cons to blending. We feel strongly that good coffee does not need to be blended; we want to discover the "origin taste" in the cup, the singular essence of the place the coffee is from. This is lost in blending.
Our blends are made with our best coffees. We don't treat blends as a way to get rid of older coffees or ones we need to clear out! In many cases, our blend components are sourced just for the blend, based on test roasts and cupping. They are all comprised of coffees on our green coffee offering list.

The two washed Ethiopias bring on their fair share of rich chocolate sweetness, tropical fruit notes, and a tart acidic pop. Full City to Full City+. Learn MorePrice From: $6.75
