As a throwback to a past season of Great River Shakespeare Festival, we decided it was time to bring back Bottom’s Blend, named after Nick Bottom the Weaver, from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, a combination of Sumatran and Tanzanian coffees.
The first component, a Tanzania Peaberry from the Mbeya and Songwe regions, is sweet, savory and citric with toffee, sugarcane juice, and grapefruit flavors, with a creamy mouthfeel.
The second component, a fairtrade, organic Sumatra Mandheling has a tangy acidity with savory coffee cherry and cocoa flavors and an herbaceaous aftertaste.
Like Bottom’s dream in the play, you’ll hope your mug has no bottom. Enjoy.
