When creating our new Frutas Blend, we had one goal in mind – to add a juicy and fruity layer (hence the name “Frutas”) to the layers of chocolate in our Brazil. We put together a Natural Ethiopia and a Natural Brazil, perfectly balancing each other, for an irresistible flavor combination reminiscent of chocolate covered strawberries. We love how comforting this blend is to drink, while sparking interest and excitement throughout.

You have not seen many blends from Peixoto Coffee in the past because we typically like highlighting the natural characteristics of each coffee cultivar and its origin individually. When we do offer a blend, it is because we want to compose a beverage that will bring together harmonious flavors in a way that a single origin coffee could not do on its own.

When we think about blends, we think of flavor profiles that have stood out to us and are easily translatable to everyone. When creating the Frutas we had one thing in mind — chocolate covered strawberries! That incredibly juicy strawberry with the rich chocolate and lingering sweetness that perfectly balance out each other — a flavor combination that you remember for the rest of your life.

When choosing the Frutas Blend components, we needed something that could shine through the intensely rich chocolate notes of our Peixoto Doce. We immediately thought of Natural Ethiopians we have had in the past with their full bouquet of fruit notes and went looking there first. This is where we found our perfect blend component, it is intensely fruited with strong notes of strawberries.

We love how comforting this can be to drink, while still holding your attention. Brews on everything from auto-drip to espresso with ease.
