Inspired by inner child magic, Ternura (meaning tenderness in Spanish), is a blend from Mexico and Colombia that produces tasting notes like strawberry jam, chocolate cake, and waffle cone. Offering juicy stone fruit acidity, this roast starts slightly astringent and then mellow out as cooled. We also tasted strawberry, milk chocolate, roasted almonds, and plum.

Every coffee we share has been tasted and recommended by our expert Tasting Panel who have years of experience in specialty coffee. We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn't want to do it.
