Bump ‘n Grind has another exciting Single Origin roast out in our cafes and pop-ups. Our Indonesian - Java is a light roasted bean with a powerful flavor combination. A one-two punch of Baker’s chocolate and molasses, with cedar and red plum notes, gives this unique bean a robust flavor signature. The Java - Light is currently receiving rave reviews from our Single Origin fans, one out in Denver claiming, “this is like the Barolo of coffee! I love the forward chocolate flavor, and that it is more syrupy and full-bodied than most light roasts.” While we recommend our small-batched, single origin beans to be served in a pour-over fashion, we are also offering it as a rich Cold Brew at our weekend pop-up cafe at the Roastery in Kensington!
Bump ‘n Grind is currently featuring a new Single Origin roast: the Nicaragua - Matagalpa. A lightly roasted approach brings out the complex layers of this bean from the northern mountain regions of Nicaragua. The Matagalpa region is famous for its lush tropical vegetation, most of the coffee grown in this region is shade grown in nutrient-rich, volcanic soil. Grown 700m above sea level, in a climate the locals refer to as “the eternal spring,” these beans go through a washed process before they are dried and shipped to our roastery in Kensington, MD. In line with our commitment to “conscientious coffee,” these beans are both certified organic and fair trade!
With Earth Week 2022 coming to a close, Bump ‘n Grind wants to offer a friendly reminder of our commitment to minimizing impacts on climate change and encouraging our growing community to enjoy our “conscientious coffee.” This edition of the Liner Notes is a Bump ‘n Grind nod to the daily effort it takes for us all to strive for a healthier planet. As a small business, we recognize that individual consumer behavior will ultimately struggle to tilt the current trajectory of our environmental circumstances, it will take a collective. Bump ‘n Grind aims to be a steward on this wild and wonderful Earth, leaving it a little more magical, a place worth sharing for generations to come.
