We are always looking for ways to find the best coffee possible while supporting farmers with sustainable prices that allow them to grow, harvest and process the best coffee they can. To this end, I traveled to Colombia last November with two roasting friends, Chuck of Birdrock Coffee Roasters and Jeff of Portola Coffee Lab. Our plan was to work with a local coffee expert to find just this coffee and for this we teamed with Leonardo, a great young cupper who has spent years sourcing for others, now he would source for us. Our incentive to the farmers was a three-tiered pricing structure based on cupping scores and 3.6 million pesos for the top three winners of our Roasters United Competition.

Our Roasters United competition blend comes from various farms in Colombia that we sample roasted and cupped to reach that "peak of flavor" that we aspire to achieve. It features a milk and dark chocolate body with tangerine-citrus acidity. Along with an interesting Asian pear undertone, this is a very balanced cup that anyone can enjoy all day long!

Finally, a gourmet "blend" August 28, 2014
Reviewer: Travis Hill from Boise, ID United States  
"Blends" are usually to be avoided (by me, anyway), as they typically take the lower-end beans, the leftovers, etc., and are combined together.

The RUCB beans might be a blend, but Klatch has seemingly taken the top tier beans and combined them into this unique, VERY flavorful offering. Alone, the RUCB is fantastic, and has no bitterness, no strong (and somewhat unpleasant) aftertaste, and the price is very misleading.

Sometimes the less expensive coffees are just not that great. This is not one of those coffees. It' another one where you shouldn't let the low price fool you.

Also, this blends very nicely with Panamanian Elida and Ethiopian Wote if you want to experience newer, custom flavors on your own.
