Roaster's Comments: This blend is a collaboration with Dixie Reptiles, a breeder of ball pythons and crested geckos located in Southside, AL. They also have been operating the Dixie Reptile Shows in Alabama for the past 20 years. The coffee in this blend is a combination of 4 of our favorites for a medium roast. The Brazil and Colombian are the base for many of our blends and give us a nice, chocolatey platform to work with. On top of that, we add the Honduran, which is one of our all-time favorite coffees, both as a single origin as well as in blends. Finally, to finish this one off, we add in a Rwanda that really brings up the sweetness. Since this is roasted to a medium, the typical acidity associated with Rwandan coffees is much more subtle and balanced. As with many of our reptile industry partners, $1 of every bag of the Dixie Reptiles blend will be donated to the United States Association of Reptile Keepers (USARK) to continue to promote captive breeding and education initiatives.
