Sometimes you want some caffeine in your coffee but not as much as usual, that’s why we came up with 50/50 Blend. This certified organic blend combines Mocha Java with Decaf Shakeout, providing the perfect balance of flavor and caffeine for many of us. Mocha Java is synonymous with fruit-forward flavors. We combine a pair of coffees from Ethiopia, a blueberry-like natural processed coffee, and a vibrant, citrus- and floral-toned washed coffee. The blend is completed with a wet-hulled coffee from Sumatra, which creates a complex, softly fruity cup. When combined with Decaf Shakeout, the flavors of 50/50 Blend sweeten up further, adding notes of chocolate and nuts. In order to keep Decaf Shakeout fresh and lively through the year, coffees from some of our favorite Latin American origins are selected. The current version is made up entirely of coffee from Cafès Especiales Corquín (CAFSÉCOR) cooperative, which is based in the Copán growing region of Western Honduras. CAFSÉCOR is dedicated to improving the livelihood of its members, providing training and financing aimed at increasing quality, yields, and producer earnings. The group is committed to the preservation of the environment and local wildlife and started a campaign against child labor in 2019. The resulting flavor of 50/50 Blend is sweet, balanced, and complex, which hints of berry-like fruit, rounded out with deeper flavors of almond and cacao. A great coffee for people cutting back on caffeine or for those times when you want a delicious coffee with a bit less caffeine.

More Details

Roast Level: Medium Dark
Medium-dark or Vienna roast coffee features a deeper, richer flavor profile due to its longer roasting time. When selecting a Vienna roast, look for a lower acidity, bolder body, and flavors with dark chocolate, caramel, toasted nut notes, and mild smokiness.
Bean Source Country: International Blend
International blend coffee refers to a blend of coffee beans sourced from different regions or countries worldwide. International blends combine beans with distinct flavor profiles and characteristics, resulting in a harmonious and complex cup of coffee. The quality of an international blend depends on the expertise of the coffee roaster, who carefully selects and combines beans to achieve a specific flavor and balance. Roasters who excel in crafting international blends have a deep understanding of the different growing regions, varietals, and processing methods.
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.
