New Blend for New Times
Though we are in uncertain times, I’m trying to maintain a sense of normalcy by roasting coffee and creating new blends. I figured new times require a new blend.
Decameron Blend is a mixture of a few of my favorite coffees, and roasted in the dark, Italian style, to the point where oil just starts to appear on the surface of the bean. The flavor profile is savory, with citric acidity, with notes of cocoa and toffee, and a heavy mouthfeel.
I chose this name because in the 14th century, an Italian fellow named Boccaccio wrote a book by this same name. The story takes place during the time of the plague, and it opens with 10 people leaving the crowded city to wait out the ravages of the pandemic. While in the country, they each tell ten stories over ten days to pass the time. It would appear we all have time on our hands now. Though we shouldn’t be in large groups, we can still be with our families or in our small social units, talking to each other and listening to each other. Here’s a coffee roasted for just that purpose.
