Jammy, sweet, versatile in all extractions, The Modern is a seasonal coffee that uses both classic and modern roasting techniques to create a new taste. The whole point behind this coffee is a chemical reaction known as interchange, which takes place during first crack where 2 different coffees that are roasted together take on each other's tastes. This has been done in Italy for decades, but they are using a wide spectrum of coffees that all cook well at different temperatures. When you roast multiple components together, they will all roast to different degrees depending on moisture, bean size, and density.
So we started wondered what would happen when you took 2 different coffees that have the same moisture, density, and size, and roasted them together?
The results are pretty phenomenal. Interchange allows us to take 2 great components that have similar density and size, and create brand new tastes through the roaster. We are hesitant to even call this blend, as the taste is so uniform and round in a way that we've never experienced. It really is the best of all possible worlds when it comes to great tastes, consistency for the user, and an approachable taste for all palates.
