- We recommend avoiding ‘extremes’. For example, combining two widely complex coffees may hinder clarity. Combining a delicately floral coffee with a rich dark roast may just taste like a dark roast.
- Density matters. Lightly roasted coffee is denser, therefore, brews a little bit slower. Combining low and high density coffees may restrict your ability to brew a balanced coffee.
- Look for traits that your favorite coffee lacks. This way, you can pick a coffee to make up for that trait. Go ahead and take a peak at our taste notes for detailed descriptions. Often, a coffee that is simple and tasty is used as the back bone, while the complex coffees accent the blend.
