    This week to try to stunt my East Coast bias, I ordered a six-pack of coffees from a roaster out of Vachon Island, WA called Blossom Coffee Roasters (ok fine, I did also buy four bags from Massachusetts and Maine).

    I started the Blossom with Edward Gonzales Organic Peru. From the moment I opened the bag, the S'mores aroma emanating from the ground beans was very inviting.

    Upon brewing, the S'mores notes carried through to the cup, creating a delightful and comforting flavor profile (a touch of lactic acid from the fermentation perhaps). The combination of black tea and clean citrusy bursts, which emerged around three-fourths of the way through the sip, added a refreshing and vibrant touch to the overall taste.

    As I continued to explore the flavors, I noticed a delightful transformation from tangerine to pear, which added a subtle sweetness to the coffee. It was impressive how well Blossom Coffee Roasters captured these flavors, as they had specifically mentioned pear, milk chocolate, toffee, and guava in their description, and I could detect hints of all these elements.

    One aspect that stood out was the nuttiness, particularly a cashew-like note that appeared at the front of the palate. This nuance provided a pleasant balance to the other flavors, enhancing the overall complexity and depth of the coffee.

    For me, a rating of 4.5 or 5 stars. I'm giving Blossom the benefit of the doubt since their taste notes description exactly matched the notes I found.

    Cupping Method:Hario v60 dripper. I purchased a 6 bag sampler from Blossom. They fresh roast and I sampled this coffee the day after they delivered.

    A very interesting coffee that is a pleasure to drink! There is a sweet and light taste with a rich and complex flavor profile. The flavor is remarkably consistent and the finish clears out quick without any trace of bitterness.

    This roast made a wonderful cup of coffee. It was smooth and rich with a nice finish, and I really enjoyed the milk chocolate and toffee notes. I would definitely buy this one again.

More Details

Roast Level: Light
Light roast coffee is a delicately roasted coffee that retains more of the beans' natural flavors and characteristics. Light-roasted coffees have bright acidity, complex fruit, and floral notes. Light roast coffee does not have less caffeine than darker roasts because caffeine levels remain stable during roasting.
Bean Source Country: Peru
Peruvian specialty coffee is distinguished by its diverse microclimates and high elevations in the Andean mountains. These factors contribute to the beans' unique flavor profile, typically featuring bright acidity, medium body, and subtle notes of fruit, chocolate, and floral undertones.
Organic
Organic coffee is produced without synthetic chemicals, such as pesticides, herbicides, and artificial fertilizers. Instead, organic coffee farmers rely on natural and sustainable agricultural practices like crop rotation, composting, and biological pest control. To be labeled as organic, coffee must meet strict regulations and certification criteria set by governing bodies, such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) or the European Union (EU). Organic coffee not only supports environmental sustainability but may also offer health benefits, as it contains fewer chemical residues than conventionally grown coffee.
