Winning isn't everything. We weren't able to snag any of this year's Tazo Dorado winners, but we found a coffee from Ecuador we like even better, Ecuador Patricio Jijon.
We can't say enough about this coffee. Rich, sweet and balanced, it combines soft dark fruit topnotes and a creamy body with the flavors of black cherries and rich hazelnuts. The rich and chocolaty finish lingers, growing livelier as it cools. Smooth enough to drink all day, or pair it with your favorite pastry (Linzer Torte, anyone?), this is coffee as it was meant to be!
The Tazo Dorado winners this year were great, but our cupping experts scored Patricio Jijon even higher. Better still, since it didn't win the contest, Ecuador Patricio Jijon is less expensive, only $19.98 per roast (approximately $17.25/lb) .
We'd like everyone to try this amazing coffee. For a short time only, we're offering 1/2 roast sample bags for only $10. Scroll down the "Roast Level" options and you'll see 1/2 roast samples at the bottom. Order one and see for yourself.
