A new generation of coffee roasters and coffee lovers are discovering the wide diversity of flavors possible in coffees roasted on the lighter end of the roast color spectrum. Fruit notes emerge that can be tart, sweet, or somewhere in between. Light roasts can exhibit light body up to medium or even heavy bodies, depending on the bean itself and the roaster. And when lighter roasted coffees are blended together, the flavor party really gets going!
"Meow That's What I Call Light Roast!" takes two different bright, fruity Ethiopian coffees and brings in between them a Colombian component with darker fruit notes and heavier body - creating a sweet, fruity, substantial, easy-drinking light roast blend.
"Meow That's What I Call Light Roast!" is a collaboration between us here at RSR and Iowa apparel legends, RAYGUN. RAYGUN sells this coffee at their 4 retail locations in Iowa and Kansas City.
