There are only three questions to ask of a curated coffee: how long has it been on the shelf, has anyone blown off the dust, and are there still overdue fines? It seems we’ve come a long way from curating book collections to curating bulk produce.

While claimed to be a 50/50 blend of light, Colombian Morales, and medium, Ethiopian Limu, roasted coffee beans, all the beans in the can looked the same.  Judging by the color and the amount of oil on the beans, I’d call them a medium roast.  When the beans were removed from the can, and compared side by side, there was a mix of small and medium size beans.

Aside from the marketing hype, this is a nice coffee.  In the can and ground, the beans had a nice aroma.  Brewed and in the cup, the coffee had a nice taste.  There was a little bitterness, but nothing exceptional.  Overall this is a smooth drinking medium roast coffee.  Price $8.99 (13 ounce can).
