Cassiopeia Blend

Regular price $11.00 Sale

Medium roasted blend with taste notes of raspberry. On the nose it's like a bouquet of honeysuckle and lavender flowers. The blend is made from two fantastic Ethiopian coffees. 8oz per bag. 

Country of Origin: Ethiopia

Region and process method: Yirgacheffe and Sidamo. The Yirgacheffe is a Natural coffee from the Rocko Mountain area and the Sidamo is a Washed coffee. Both coffees are 100% Arabica.

Collaborating roast partner: Allegro Coffee Company, Colorado.

Shipping dates and availability: August 11th to Sept 30th.

The artist who created Cassiopeia's portrait: Lauren Kaelin

Coffee cocktail recommendations: In a Negroni, replace the vermouth with cold Cassiopeia. When it collides with the Campari and gin it adds a smokey flavor. It goes great with Mezcal and Tequila, also. 

Inspiration behind the name: During a visit to Bryce Canyon National Park a Park Ranger pointed out the Cassiopeia constellation and mentioned her Ethiopian connections. We knew great coffee comes from Ethiopia and we thought it might be cool to name a coffee blend from there after Cassiopeia. 

Story of Cassiopeia

In Greek mythology, Cassiopeia was the Queen of Aethiopia (modern day Ethiopia).

She was banished to the sky by Poseidon, God of the Sea, for boasting that her daughter Andromeda was more beautiful than the spirits of the sea.

As a constellation of the North Sky, located in the Milky Way galaxy, she is recognizable by a ‘W’ shape. Her name has appeared in ancient Phoenician texts as meaning ‘rose colored face’ and ‘cassia juice,’ the Latinized form of the Greek Κασσιόπεια or Cassiopeia.

*A limited edition print of Cassiopeia is included with each order.
