Snakes & Stogies Blend
Tasting Notes: Toffee, grapefruit, and apricot with a mild floral finish.
Region: Mexico (Chiapas) / Rwanda (Karongi Gitesi)
Roaster's Comments: This blend is a collaboration with the Snakes & Stogies podcast, part of The Herpetoculture Network. Each week, Justin and Phil talk live with guests about all things reptiles and tobacco. As coffee and tobacco growing areas often overlap and because coffee and tobacco pair so well together, we thought this would be the perfect podcast for Cold Blooded Caffeine to sponsor!
If you know Justin and Phil and what they like to keep in their personal collections, it should be no surprise why we chose a Mexican coffee and an African coffee for this blend. The coffees themselves are a really nice combination that, when taken to a medium roast, give some very nice sweetness and floral notes while still having a very smooth, toffee-like base. As with many of our reptile industry partners, $1 of every bag sold will be donated to the United States Association of Reptile Keepers (USARK) to continue to promote captive breeding and education initiatives.
