Limited Release

Our Founder’s Blend is a seasonal premium coffee made available to our Purity Coffee subscribers, while supplies last. The Founder’s Blend coffees are produced in small quantities (typically about 500 lbs) and are sold on a first come, first served basis. For this release we are roasting and filling 500 12 oz bags, each of which will be numbered.

This inaugural Founder’s Blend is a single origin Colombian coffee which we entered into the U.S. Coffee Championships Brewer’s Cup event. This esteemed competition pits the nation’s top coffees (many of which are not made available to the public) against one another, vying for scores based solely on taste as brewed by the country’s top professional baristas.

Competition Grade

This exact blend was ranked the highest certified organic Coffee at the 2019 US Brewers Cup. It was the only coffee that was intentionally roasted to maximize health benefits (versus only for taste.) Purity is taste AND health!

Taste and Roast Profile

Experience the fragrance of chamomile and aroma of brown spices with flavors of orange when hot, that cools to a tart red apple-like brightness. You’ll notice a caramel sweetness with a clean, long aftertaste that settles to brown sugar notes. Silky body that remains strong as it cools.

We roast to two different profiles and blend them together to add complexity to the coffee and allow different aspects to emerge throughout the experience. The base roast retains antioxidant compounds and brings out bright notes in the flavor. We blend in a medium roast to bring out sugar-browning and baking spice notes.

Next Roast Date: July 2019 | Ship Date: TBD

Order 2 or more bags and shipping is free.

Due to limited supply, maximum order size is 4 bags

The origin of our inaugural Founders' Blend

This Founder’s Blend comes from a farmer in Colombia, Francisco, who has been researching coffee and health for many years, and Purity Coffee could not have found a better producer with whom to work. Francisco has developed his own system and principles for health, when producing the highest quality certified organic coffee we have found.

Francisco is scientific in his approach to every aspect of his production, including soil management, organic practices, and protecting the wild forests that surround and cut through the different coffee lands on the farm. Francisco also goes to remarkable lengths to incorporate advanced food safety techniques, equipment and supplies to preserve the health of the coffee both before and after harvest.

Colombian Coffee Farmers

All of Francisco and his team’s work on the farm pays off in flavor as well as health. The specialty coffee industry has a standardized, shared lexicon– a set of descriptors specific to describing coffee flavors– and a scoring system (80 points and above is “specialty”) to which thousands of industry professionals have calibrated their palates (Purity’s Director of Coffee included). Francisco’s coffee has consistently been cupped as an excellent specialty coffee, making it one of the rarest coffees in the world based on Purity’s standards.

Since we started Purity Coffee, we have been studying and defining what the standards should be for a coffee that is produced with every decision based on health. To find coffees that meet the standards—without compromise—is difficult and takes time, but we also knew that we would come across exceptional coffees that would achieve the highest standards and advance our understanding of what is achievable. Because these coffees are rare, we also knew that quantities of these coffees would be limited, but we wanted to offer them to the Purity community to illustrate the great possibilities of coffee.

We were so elated to discover our first exceptional Purity standard coffee, that we decided to enter the prestigious U.S. Coffee Championships in January 2019 in the Brewers Cup division (brewed coffee, not espresso). This event is only for the best tasting coffees in the United States, and based on that alone (health is not a criterion at all). Many roasters work directly with farmers on special lots of coffee that are only brewed for the competition.

It is rare for a certified organic coffee even to be entered in this competition, and our placement established this Founders Blend as the best tasting organic coffee in the U.S. as evaluated by world class, trained coffee tasters. Not only did this coffee exceed our exacting standards for health, it also is independently judged as one of the best coffees you can buy for taste. After the competition in Nashville, we were shocked to learn that most of the coffees that are entered are NOT available for purchase… they are only created to compete. We always intended to make ours available to our community.

Today we present to you our inaugural limited-quantity Founder’s Blend, offered only to our community members. We hope you enjoy it and feel great after drinking it– please let us know your thoughts and let’s keep the conversations going. The feedback you give us is so important as we continue to serve you, our community of coffee and health enthusiasts.

Roast Profile: We call this Founder’s Blend, because we roast this coffee to two different profiles and blend them together to add complexity to the coffee and allow different aspects to emerge throughout the experience. The base of the coffee is lighter than our regular Purity Coffee, to retain antioxidant compounds and to bring out bright notes in the flavor. We blend in a medium roast to bring out sugar-browning and baking spice notes.

Cupping Notes: Fragrance of chamomile and aroma of brown spices with flavors of orange when hot that cools to a tart red apple-like brightness as it cools. Caramel sweetness with a clean, long aftertaste that settles to brown sugar notes. Silky body that remains strong as it cools.

Health Benefits: The antioxidants are highlighted in this coffee and measured 2.187% (w/w), which is in 100g of solution. In other words, there are 2.2 grams of chlorogenic acids dissolved in a 100g solution, if it is brewed similarly to the way it was brewed at competition.

Freshness: We will send the orders within 24 hours of roasting. Oxygen in the bag will be displaced with nitrogen, a natural way to prevent oxidation and staling. Your coffee will taste as fresh as the day it was roasted.
