“Upsetter” is our light roast blend for Save Our Wolves. 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
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.
Delicious Light Roast
From Mary Fouts of Walnut Creek, California on 2/16/2015.
I have purchased Save Our Wolves Light Roast on a monthly subscription for more years than I care to remember. Simply delicious, never acidic, the light roast enhances the wonderful flavors of the beans that simply sing with each cup. Caramel and apricot notes pair perfectly with the cinnamon or vanilla I sometimes add to the beans. Wonderful with a bit of milk.
