The Review Developed especially for 2016, our Easter Sunrise Blend is roasted to a secret formula. While we can't say exactly what beans are used, we sampled a lot of coffees before we found a particularly special Ethiopian coffee that lends a lot of brightness and fruit tones.
Choir Monk: I am looking forward to tasting this coffee! I know from experience that Ethiopian coffee can be hard to blend well, as its flavors sometimes do not go well with other coffees. Choir Monk: Here are my thoughts on the Easter Sunrise Blend:
Choir Monk: Ethiopian can be a hard coffee to blend, but Brother Roaster pulled it off again this year with the Easter Sunrise Blend. Lay Monk: I'm glad you like it! I thought that it was very nice too. Here are my notes: Aroma: Complex, with notes of malt and grapefruit. Acidity: Excellent acidity; not as pronounced as last year's blend, but perhaps more complex. Aftertaste: Sweet and enduring. I noticed pleasant woody and fruity notes. Body/Mouthfeel: Medium to full body. Complexity: Very good! Fruity notes including grapefruit and blueberry, and a wonderful sweet malty note. Darkness: I would say medium-light. Conclusion:
Choir Monk: A good breakfast coffee is hard to master. It needs to be bright, without being sour, and invigorating, without being bitter. I think the 2016 Easter Sunrise Blend fits all the categories of a great breakfast coffee. Lay Monk: That is very true! It's amazing to think we are already on our 5th Easter Sunrise Blend! Each year is an improvement upon the last, and I hope to enjoy it for years to come! Choir Monk: To sum up:
Delicate, invigorating and rich, the Easter Sunrise Blend for 2016 is our most complex breakfast blend yet. Bittersweet grapefruit, ripe blueberry and sweet malty-chocolate. The aftertaste is profound, with pleasant notes of smoky caramel.
