Bernice's BlendCoffee Blends
Hunter Bay’s version of a classic Mocha Java, Bernice’s Blend is rich in flavors of wild berries and spice with an earthiness that lends robust body and structure. Mocha Java is the world’s oldest known coffee blend, and in our version quality coffees from Africa and Indonesia are carefully blended and roasted to achieve a perfect marriage between the dancing fruit accents of the African and the thick earth tones of the Indonesian coffees.
Created to be served alongside the gourmet pastries at Bernice’s Bakery here in Missoula, Montana, Bernice’s Blend is made from naturally processed 100% organic coffees from coffee cooperatives in the East Indies and Africa. In this complex blend the robust body and smooth finish of the East Indies coffees balance the assertive fruity flavors in the East African coffees, presenting the best qualities of each in a stout brew of moderate acidity with full flavors and ripe berry highlights. Rich, winey and full-bodied, Bernice’s Blend has been one of Hunter Bay’s top-selling coffees since its introduction in 1992.
Bernice’s Blend is slow-roasted to a rich dark-chocolate brown Viennese Roast to accentuate the coffee’s caramel-chocolate flavors and to add a touch of dark roast toastiness and pleasant burnt-sugar sweetness to this well-balanced, full-bodied brew.
