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 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 Gora Kone, a natural processed coffee from the Sidamo region of Ethiopia. This coffee is intensely fruited with strong notes of strawberries, and we knew he had found our match.
We love how comforting this can be to drink, while still holding your attention. Brews on everything from auto-drip to espresso with ease.

We love this coffee on filter because it brings a little bit of everything to the table. Flavors of ripe fruit like plum and strawberry, roasted almonds, dark chocolate, with a velvety creamy body and layers of sweetness that lay a foundation for the flavors to flourish.
