Elevator Coffee for Milk Street 177 Coffee Blend
After tasting coffees from roasters around the country, we decided to partner with Elevator Cafe & Commons, a small roaster in Portland, Oregon, to produce a custom blend for us from the freshest beans. The bright, clear flavors and precision of their roasting thoroughly impressed us. When you order our blend, you can be sure that the beans have been freshly roasted and shipped out immediately. Our inaugural 177 Milk Street coffee is a do-it-all blend that works across brewing methods and accommodates a variety of palates. The medium roast mix of Central and South American beans packs a full, rich body and a balanced nutty, cocoa-rich flavor. It’s a solid, full-bodied blend that’ll be terrific brewed in your standard coffee maker, pour-over, French press, Italian-style Moka pot or cold brew.
Smith Tea Milk Street Afternoon Blend
The best afternoon tea has enough body and complexity to get you through the afternoon doldrums (and keep you from falling asleep at your desk). We developed this Milk Street Exclusive tea with Smith Teamaker in Portland, Oregon, whose founder, Steven Smith, revolutionized American tea-drinking habits. The multi-layered black tea blend mixes malty Assam and buttery Keemun with pungent juniper, clove and bright bergamot for a complex and unexpectedly refreshing cup.
Elevator Coffee for Milk Street Guatemala San Julian Blend
We partnered with Elevator Cafe & Commons in Portland, Oregon, to freshly roast a single-origin coffee grown on the San Julian farm in Guatemala's mountainous Palencia region. The high-altitude growing conditions produce hardier beans with a bolder, more concentrated flavor. This well-balanced blend combines creamy Pacamara and bright Catuai, along with Bourbon and San Ramón bean varietals. Guatemalan coffees tend to be full-bodied with rich cocoa flavors, and we like how the blend's undertones of caramel and chocolate are accented by a subtle acidity and raspberry-like fruitiness. Each sip is complex and aromatic, with richer dark chocolate notes gradually setting in as your cup cools.
