Historically, coffee blends got a bad rap from coffee enthusiasts. People suspected it was a method to save money by using cheaper beans. Nothing could be further from the truth as these days coffee is a highly competitive coffee market. Nobody wants to risk reputation.
Blends enable roasters to mix a variety of beans to achieve higher levels of consistency between different batches and harvests. So they can achieve a similar taste for coffees across a period of time. The best coffee blends can be made for years.
A 3 or 4 bean blend will have 7 or 8 different changes throughout a calendar year. Coffee is a fresh food and beans from the same region will differ through the years. They are often made from some of our best single origin coffee beans.
Just like mixing spices when cooking, not all coffee blends will work together in harmony. Sometimes the acids will clash resulting in an unbalanced cup. Experienced coffee roasters know how to adapt and manage these nuances.
The art of blending different coffee beans requires a lot of skill. At JustFreshRoasted, we always try to create a memorable cup of coffee for each of our blends and we use our 38 years of knowledge to craft a winning solution.
