Let’s be honest with each other here, I sip on coffee like it’s water. Most people enjoy a cup to wake up in the morning, but I’m not most people. It doesn’t matter the time of day, I crave it. There’s nothing more refreshing to me than a steaming cup of black holy water. Because I don’t add sugar or cream, I get to really taste it. Why does this matter? Well there’s a big difference in trying a generic store brand’s roast and a specialty brand like the dreamy 1000 Faces Coffee.
1000 Faces is a coffee roaster that cares about a whole lot more than just pushing out a product. They travel (literally) to great lengths to ensure that their coffee beans are nothing short of pristine. It’s founder, Ben Myers, has traveled to places as far away as Ethiopia in order to form a relationship with producers. Doing so allows 1000 Faces to maintain the integrity of their coffee. Their level of involvement also ensures that it remains fresh and isn’t sitting on a store shelf for months.
The two flavors that I’ve drooled over are Finca Candelaria (crisp apple + orange marmalade + structured) and Misty Valley (blueberry cobbler + dark chocolate). Yeah, they’re just as divine as they sound. If you head over to 1000 Faces’ website, you can find incredibly interesting details for any roast they sell – from region to country, all of the way down to the farm it came from, it’s there. I truly appreciate them taking the time to share these details. Aside from the intrigue, it further displays the amount of care that they pour into their product.
If you don’t believe me, head over to 1000 Faces Coffee’s website and see (or taste, rather) for yourself. My next must-try flavor is Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza (pecan + peanut butter + chocolate ganache). Try saying that 3 times fast… nonetheless, YUM.
