Last weekend, it was in the single digits before wind chill here in Boston. Then it dropped a foot of snow. Then it rained on top of the snow, and promptly refroze, thereby transforming the entire state into an iceberg.
What does a New Englander do under these circumstances? Same thing we do the rest of the year - drink iced coffee. No mere blizzard can stop us! (Although it did slow us down a bit when the coffee froze solid inside the straw.)
This is Blizzard Blend, a special preparation of our Nicaraguan Catimor. It's a Harlequin roast, but tilted toward the light roasts that Catimor loves so well. Catimor makes an exceptionally full-bodied and rich-textured cold brew, almost opaque, and the citrusy elements and bright fragrance make it even more refreshing.
What is Catimor? A totally new type of coffee! Catimor is the "fourth bean" that gives Trung Nguyen's Creative Four its unparalleled complexity. In Vietnam, Catimor is rarely given center stage, though. In Nicaragua, on the other hand, Catimor is a prized heirloom. The result is a premium quality bean with a unique and deeply layered flavor profile. The farm uses mandarin orange trees as shade trees, too, which adds to the sweet citrusy fragrance.
