Fresh Roasted Coffee Blends
A coffee blend consists of two or more individual coffee beans that may be mixed together in the raw state (green) prior to roasting or they are roasted separately and blend after roasting.
There are many reasons to develop coffee bean blends.
One primary objective used by coffee bean roasters is to achieve higher levels of consistency between batches, coffee bean sacks and shipments over a period of time.

Another important aspect of coffee bean blends is to harness the characteristics of multiple individual coffee beans so they can "work together" in producing a superior result compared to any individual bean. As an example, a sweet, fruity, high acid Central American bean may be lacking body or finish and it can be blended together with a low acid, long finish bean that may not be so sweet. The result may provide a sweet coffee with a long finish.
Of course, not all blends work as they may have originally been designed or intended.
Blending different coffee beans is a very skillful art. For coffee roasters it is a lifetime journey in learning.
