Aromas of milk chocolate and orange introduce this soft yet complex coffee. Notes of lilac and kiwi accompany persimmon acidity in the cup, mellowing into a finish of wafer cookie and cinnamon.
This light-medium roast blend of four coffees from El Salvador, Mexico, and Peru is a rich brew with sweet marzipan and vanilla aromas, a round body, and a chocolatey finish. Taking its name from Kansas' state motto—Ad Astra Per Aspera, or "to the stars through difficulties"—our Benefit Blend evolves seasonally, with 100% of net profits going to organizations dedicated to fostering positive social change. We will often focus on Kansas-based causes, but will also take into account organizations that address inequities along the global specialty coffee supply chain.
