We've kept blends to a minimum these days. It's quite a difficult endeavor...making a GOOD blend that you want to drink over and over again. Not to mention the price of the average coffee is now much higher than it's ever been.
We did have a couple coffees that we thought would make a pretty sweet blend. Our goal at Traffic is to find interesting coffees that on their own are amazing, but perhaps often at odds with one another. That dissidence between them however, could create an incredible harmony in the cup that can only be described as delicious ambivalence. In a way, a beautiful disaster.
With that, we present to you, Belle Chicane. Enjoy these 2 wonderfully sweet coffees, each bringing their own flare to the party wrapping you up in a chocolatey, maple-y cup filled with an umami like finish of honeydew & yuzu-like flavours.
Yeah. It's pretty awesome.

Both these coffees come from relationships we cultivated over the past 5 years. This Sidamo Ethiopian from the Hamacho co-op is one of the nicest washed coffees we found after much cupping & the Honduran is a coffee sourced through Benjamin Paz & our relationships in the El Cielito and Santa Barbara areas.
