A full-bodied cup layered with notes of warm brownie, chocolate, and red wine.
If you know our owner, Deb, then you might be able to guess how F-Bomb got its name. Back in 2012, we had a fresh crop offering from Mexico that filled the roastery with the aroma of freshly baked brownies. Deb popped out on the floor popping off f-bombs in joy of that wonderful smells. It was then endearingly named, “F-Bomb,” to honor its aromatics and quickly became our best selling offering.
This season's F-Bomb comes from a new offering from Honduras, and more specifically the women-produced lot, Café de Mujeres (translates to “Women's Coffee”). Our friends at Sustainable Harvest helped us source this coffee and provided more information about where the coffee comes from: "In 2014 Pacayal Coffee was founded, which has since grown to 134 members, 54 of whom are women. The motto of the organization is “quality does not suffer crisis,” speaking to the dedication of Pacayal Coffee to produce exceptional coffee and improve the livelihoods of farmers. While their fellow farmers considered emigrating to the United States in search of the American Dream, Edgar and Karen Carillo realized they had great coffee and could start a business that would earn quality-driven farmers a better price through direct market access."
This year’s selection is produced entirely of the 54 women who participate in the Pacayal Cooperative. This provides upward mobility for the women producers while creating solidarity within the community.
our blending approach
Many moons ago, coffee traders thought it'd be a good idea to take two different origins with vastly different cup profiles and combine them to make a super blend of deliciousness.
To honor the industry tradition, we take our long-term relationships with cooperatives and producers to create our line of house classics. While coffee as a plant changes in quality yearly, we work to ensure the flavor profiles of our blends remain predictable and comforting.
