As you may have noticed, we have started serving two new coffees: Sweetwater's Mexico and Freight Train. We want to share a bit of how we selected these coffees and how we select all of our coffees.
As a staff, we come together and cup (a tasting method) different coffees to determine which are the best quality to serve either as brewed coffee (drip, pour over, french press, etc.) or espresso. After our most recent cupping, we fell in love with both the Freight Train and the Mexico.
The Freight Train has a complex blend of tartness and sweetness, which makes it a crisp and refreshing brewed coffee. It's full body, along with its complex flavor, makes it a great espresso.
Mexico, a slightly darker roast than the Freight Train, has some of the same sweetness with less tart. In has, instead, a smokier sweetness, which makes it a smooth brewed coffee.
Come in and enjoy these two coffees while we serve them!
