Your Coffee Journey

My coffee journey began 20 years ago, my family always drank coffee together; often as coffee break. We drank Café con Leche, which is made by boiling cinnamon sticks in water with sugar concentrate with coffee and condensed milk. In my late teens, early 20’s I had many late-night Denny’s visits. I was drinking coffee with too much sugar, and I'm talking 6 packets to where nowadays I am enjoying a fresh black brew. As I visited small café shops my palette changed. I began to notice the variances in espresso and began to enjoy lattes without sugar. I visited café shops in Orange County and Los Angeles primarily, but ventured even further north to Seattle and south to San Diego drinking and buying coffee from different Micro Roasters.
15 years ago, my sister invited me to Klatch Coffee in Rancho, she knew I loved small shops with great coffee. We have been hooked since. Now I work at Klatch I have my go to, our Las Mercedes: Pacamara, Pepinal 1 and Maracaturra. I always try our new arrivals, including cupping when we are picking flavor notes and new coffees.

Well you may be wondering how you can develop your palette? What's more, how can find coffees that you will love? I've got some suggestions. First, I would suggest starting by trying blends. These Medium roasts are a good start because they have a wide range of flavor notes.

Blends are a combination of the multiple coffees, bringing out the very best attributes of different coffees.

Onyx Blend
mandarin orange - apricot - cedar
Breakfast Blend
floral - apple - pear
Mocha Java Blend
chocolate - almond - blueberry

If you're up for it, I would suggest moving on to Espresso. Just starting out? Start off with our House Espresso, which is a Medium-Dark Roast.

House Espresso
orange zest - cinnamon stick - semi-sweet
WBC Espresso
sweet dark chocolate - orange citrus – berry
Belle Espresso
blackberry - chocolate - brandy
