Description: We chose two coffees--an intensely fruited bean from Ethiopia and a persistent sweet and chocolatey bean from the Americas that reminded us of the comet. It was soft, yet intense; bright, yet faint; exhilarating, yet fleeting.
The comet ISON never returned. Our Ison blend used to return seasonally, however, due to customer demand we decided to make it a regular offering.
Best Brew Methods: Pour Over (V60, Chemex, Clever), Cold Brew, French Press
Background: Comet ISON, formally known as C/2012 S1, was a sun-grazing comet discovered in 2012. Astronomers predicted ISON would catapult around the sun and pass close enough to see with the naked eye from Earth, and rival Haley's Comet in intensity. In 2013, it disappeared behind the Sun and was never seen again.
