North Carolina, the Old North State, is a case study in diversity. From the mountains, to the Piedmont, to the coastal plains, it is a varied and wondrous place, with diversity in everything from climate and terrain, plant and animal life, urban and rural setting, and yes, a range of people, too. Yet despite all these differences, anywhere you stop in our fine state, there is a certain harmony that lets you know you are in North Carolina.
So it is with our Old North State Blend. We start with diverse inputs, roast them to different finishes, and blend them after roasting. The result is a blend with something for everyone, ranging from light, bright notes, through milk chocolate, and including some earth, leather and tobacco.
In July 2008, we were honored when Ken Davids and the staff at Coffee Review tried our flagship blend and it scored 91 points on their cupping table.
