Summer is upon us and marks our anniversary of releasing our Seasonal line of coffees. With each change of weather we are releasing a coffee that embodies the taste and feeling of the season. Summer is a lively sweet crisp cup that I may even dare say is refreshing. It presents notes of strawberry, caramel, vanilla, marzipan and brown sugar with a crisp clean acidity that is perfect as a morning pour over or an iced afternoon pick me up on a hot afternoon.
This is no marketing gimmick. For every 12oz bag of Open Seas coffee you drink we are actually giving an average of 210 L of clean drinking water to real villagers in one of our source countries. That is over 35 days worth of potable water per bag. Through our 10-4Farmers Initiative we are investing 10% of our gross profits into sustainable water filtration systems for coffee farming communities and surrounding areas.
