Intro to Blends
Enhance the alluring qualities of your desired flavours by blending single origin coffee beans that complement one another. Pair a lightly woody tone with subtle floral hints to soften the roast while maintaining the strength and richness of its aroma, or accentuate a fruity charm while bringing body to your coffee. Whatever your style, take advantage of the diverse characteristics found in coffee beans all over the world. Enrich the best qualities and create a perfectly balanced blend of coffee.
Few coffees on their own can provide the complete 'ideal' cup for everyone, from the perfect aroma and colour, to body and taste. However, the blending of coffee beans from single origins seek to achieve this. These coffee beans can be from different countries, or even the same, as different regions of one country can unlock their own diverse flavours.
As a roaster, you want balance. Making sure your coffee beans come together in harmony to create a well-balanced and smooth coffee is key in making quality blends. A popular blend among roasters is a bright, citrus coffee paired with a bean that has deeper tones which is why you will find that most blends will use dark roast. But this is not something that is limited.
What do you need? A quick me up? An after-dinner treat? or a simple well-rounded cup? With endless opportunities in flavour, you can explore the origins of different coffee beans all over the world. Find beans that you really enjoy, and think will complement one another to make a flawlessly balanced blend that suits you.
