Turkish Blend is the darkest and possibly the boldest coffee offered by Cafe Altura. The blend is made from Mexican French Roast and Peru French Roast. The combination is well suited to the darker roasts resulting in a smooth body without a hint of bitterness. The name Turkish Blend is simply an acknowledgment of one of the oldest ways to brew a powerful cup.
Turkish coffee is a method of preparing unfiltered coffee. Roasted and then finely ground coffee beans are simmered (not boiled) in a pot, and served in a cup where the grounds are allowed to settle. Superstition says the grounds left after drinking Turkish coffee can be used to tell the future. The cup is commonly turned over onto the saucer to cool, and it is believed by some that the patterns of the coffee grounds can be used for a method of fortune telling.
Mexican French Roast : Low acid, floral and naturally sweet organic bean from Chiapas, Mexico. It’s finished with a roast that’s robust, dark and glistening in oil. The roast infuses the bean with subtle notes of smoke and wood while the high-grown origin of the bean prevents bitterness and sour flavors.
Peruvian French Roast : Light-bodied, flavorful and aromatic with notes of citrus peal and dark chocolate. Combining Northern and Southern Hemisphere coffees creates a blend that is always at peak freshness.
