Enticing notes of caramel and rich milk chocolate are
complemented by hints of sweet citrus.
“Upsetter” is our light roast blend for the Mendocino Land
Trust. Created by our Roastmaster, Jacob Long, this blend for the
espresso cafes we supply here in Northern California. What we
wanted was a coffee blend with a soft acidity, and the sweetness of
plums and blueberry fruit.
So, we went to one of our favorite Nicaraguan cooperatives,
SOPPEXCCA for the base. It is a sweet coffee, very forward on the
palate, and it’s acidity is not bright or citric like most great
coffees, making it, perhaps, out of balance, but perfect for
creating “Upsetter”. We married it to a fruity “dry process
Ethiopian coffee from the Yirgacheffe region to give us the mellow
berry notes and between those two coffees you have the secret to
75% of the blend.
This coffee pairs well with delicate foods especially egg based
breakfasts and afternoon desserts.
For those who have an espresso machine, it makes a beautiful
espresso that turns a latte into a hot milkshake if you steam the
*Milk has lactic acid as a major component. Heating milk
converts lactic acid into lactose (dairy sugar). Steamed properly,
the milk foam is sweet. With a double shot of Upsetter Espresso it
becomes a wonderfully delightful latte, without the carbony notes
to spoil the coffee flavor.
For over a decade, the Mendocino Land
Trust has worked hard to create and maintain Mendocino’s public
lands. Their mission is to conserve, and we’ve partnered with them
to make sure our open spaces and parks are available for future
