A Seasonal Roast—warm and spicy with notes of chocolate and almond. 

Just in time for holiday gatherings, our seasonal roast is sure to be a hit around your table as well as the perfect cup to keep you warm on a cold winter day. Chocolatey and nutty with winter spices—this coffee is made for gatherings and chilly days. Blended from coffees sourced through our farming partners, Benchmark Coffee and Mighty Peace Coffee—you can feel extra good knowing that your coffee comes directly from small scale, quality-focused farmers. Sourcing directly is a critical component in breaking old cycles of inequality as well as creating mutually beneficial, global friendships. Together, we can create coffee that lifts everyone such as this one. 

About Our Sourcing 

Our blends are created from community-blended micro-lots sourced through our farming partner relationships. Roughly 70% of all specialty coffee farmers lack the resources to form direct trade partnerships. However, by pooling their harvests (community blending) and teaming up with Joe Bean’s sourcing partners, they are able to send us some amazing coffees which hold their own in the specialty market. By working together, each farmer assumes less risk while learning to develop all the right components of a high-end, micro-lot coffee farm; a critical step toward self sufficiency and profitability.   

Brewing Tips

Use Filtered Water

Contaminants and chemicals in your water can make your coffee taste muddy, and they can also be harsh on your equipment. Using filtered (but not distilled) water helps your coffee taste clean, bright, and naturally sweet. And while there are a lot of expensive water filters on the market, we find that an inexpensive, basic carbon filter does a great job filtering water for coffee brewing. 

Grind Fresh

We all love the smell of freshly ground coffee but all that beautiful aroma should be going into your cup and not just into the air. That is why we recommend grinding your coffee immediately before brewing so that all that goodness isn’t lost. The sooner you use your coffee after grinding, the more flavorful your cup will be preventing it from tasting stale and flat. And for best grinding results, we highly recommend using a quality burr grinder, like a Baratza

Coffee to Water Ratio

The amount of coffee beans you use can have a big impact on taste. Too much coffee, and the cup can taste heavy and sour. Too little coffee, and the cup can taste thin and bitter. We recommend using a 1:16 ratio by weight, 60g of coffee for every 1,000g of water which is about 2 Tbsp of coffee for every 8oz of water. Our preference is to use a scale to weigh coffee and water for accuracy and consistency, all of which can make a big difference.
