One of our very first priorities after opening our doors was to create a sustainable blend of coffee specifically for our vibrant local cycling community in memory of Dave Moffitt, pioneer of Spokane mountain bike culture. With the help , humor and taste buds of a group of dedicated cyclists, we worked for months roasting, cupping, and blending a series of origins until we all agreed that we had found the perfect coffees to create Ride the Edge.
Fruit Loop aroma, Asian pear acidity, full body with notes of caramelized fruit and aromatic wood. A cyclist's coffee, simple enough to slam a doppio before the ride and complex enough to have you thinking about its flavors for the duration. It made us all chuckle when we first smelled the cup, because it was an almost undeniable descriptor; a freshly opened box of Fruit Loops. In the cup, a great depth of flavors -- crip Asian pear deepened further with a nice woodsy characteristic. The full body of this coffee stays constant and intact throughout, it is everything you expect. As it cools, savor more of those earthy tones and a killer concord grape twist in the finish.
It also makes a kick-butt cold brew.
