Big Dipper Blend
roaster: Terra Nova Coffee Roasters
origin: Africa, South America, Central America, Indonesia
The Big Dipper Blend is and interesting blend of four different types of beans. Some of the beans were lightly roasted well others were roasted much darker.
As a coffee is was really smooth, with nice flavor notes throughout.
As an espresso was darker and stronger. It was a much different tasting coffee between an espresso vs. a drip coffee. It’s also a great value at $13 a bag.
