Aromas resinous of vanilla, spice, chocolate, and toast open into a delicate, sweet flavor with subtle hints of chocolate and nuts. A mild acidity pairs pleasantly with a creamy, almost velvety mouthfeel, and a clean aftertaste.

The Autumnal Equinox™ CoffeeStory
Ease into the fall season with the wonderfully balanced palate of our Autumnal Equinox™ Coffee. These washed beans from the Yungas region, in the high Bolivian Andes Mountains, contain a glorious complexity of complimentary flavor. Yungas possesses extremely high elevation and reliable wet and dry seasons—excellent conditions for growing high quality coffee. Since completion of a new transport route bypassing the notorious “Death Road” was completed in 2006 it has become easier for coffee producers to transport their crops from the region. Consequently, awareness of high-quality Bolivian coffee has grown.
Medium Roast is the optimal level for many blends where the flavor of the bean is accentuated more than the toastiness of the roast. The coffee flavors are more developed than in a Light Roast, the body is heavier, hints of spiciness start to develop, and flavors and aromas from the roasting process come to the surface.
