Legacy Blend Coffee is juicy, yet velvet-smooth, with hints of berry and a sweet pipe tobacco finish.
"Years ago I purchased Mr. Peet's original Royal No.5 coffee roaster. He was one of my mentors, and I stood side by side with him for four years learning the art of roasting coffee. I continued working at Peet's Coffee as their Master Roaster for twenty seven years. I left in 2007 and started this company with Renee Brown, Michael Brown and Bryce Inouye. I've gained a unique insight as to how Mr. Peet roasted coffee when he first moved to America. The drum of the Royal No.5 roaster is small and perforated, limiting capacity and allowing the flames to directly touch the beans. By roasting fifteen pounds at a time, and using a combination of the Royal No.5 roaster and my vintage 45 kilo Probat Roaster, I am able to marry the best of both worlds. This unique coffee roasting technique allows me to hand-craft something most coffee drinkers have never experienced."
Legacy Blend Coffee is the glimpse into John's amazing forty year journey.
Appropriately named, it stands as a proud tribute to his teachers, Alfred Peet and Sal Bonavita.
