As the crops change, so do the components of our Red Brick, highlighting harvest cycles and celebrating the seasonality of coffee. We've combined the great fruit qualities from each component, and allowed the sweetness to shine.
2/3 CORDILLERA DEL FUEGO
Country COSTA RICA
Region WEST VALLEY
1/3 EL MERIDIANO
Our current seasonal blend is a mix of Cordillera del Fuego from Costa Rica and El Meridiano from Colombia.
Well rounded, the El Meridiano gives sweet nougat notes and vibrant acidity which is perfectly complemented with the rich, creamy nut, honeycomb and a defined structure of Cordillera del Fuego. Offering consistency in a world reshaping, this iteration of Red Brick is versatile, reliably delicious and delightfully satisfying. Enjoy!
