A subtly sweet blend of S. American coffees. Medium-light with a marshmallowy finish. (Our most eclectic blend.)
ROASTING NOTES: Surrealism manifests in many places, including the appealing blur of sweet flavors in this blend of Central and South American coffees. Mellow enough to appear mild-mannered on the surface; the perspective seems to change the more you submerge into the depths of this intriguing cup. Caramel, brown sugar, rich chocolate, and vanilla notes drift in a full bodied brew. Nuanced application of heat during the roast allows the individual components’ acidities to soften and intertwine with one another, resembling the sugary sweetness of a toasted marshmallow. It all resolves into an endless finish that brings to mind dulce de leche. This coffee will persist in your memory.
How Does It Grab You? 2 Hats on The Larry's Coffee Scale

Our green-o-vated facilities use passive solar construction, active solar systems, radiant floors, zoned heating, composting, and rainwater harvesting to minimize our impact on this awesome planet.
LET’S GET FAIR ~ For Larry, Fair Trade began simply as a way to find coffee from smaller farms in remote growing areas. As he puts it, it was "a way to find more wildly unique coffees for my blends." With this in mind, he took part in a delegation to visit the Fair Trade farmers in Chiapas, Mexico, where the quiet courage and deep dignity of the farmers made a life-changing impression on Larry (in Chiapas, farmers must deal not only with a lack of government services, but the frequently hostile presence of army forces). He came away with the realization that Fair Trade "was more than a way to get amazing coffee, it was about creating a new business model, where everyone gets what they want and no one is exploited along the way." So he led Larry's Beans to become a founding member of Cooperative Coffees.
