At Intelligentsia, we await the arrival of fall with a special sense of excitement. The cool air braces us, shaking us out of the languid days of summer and mounting an all-out assault on the senses. Leaves flare out in a stunning visual display, turning a subtle spectrum of hazy shades of green into a dazzling kaleidoscope of colors — yellows, oranges, reds, and violets — rendered in crisp resolution.
Every year at this time, our quality control team draws on our freshest seasonal ingredients to create a seasonal blend that achieves the same kind of resolution of flavors in the cup. Then we wrap it in autumn colors and a leaf motif to evoke the sensory experience of fall with both the Otoño package and the coffee inside.
The 2021 edition of our Otoño blend hits the mark with notes of plum, pear, and orange. Its complexity of flavor reflects the diversity of its single-origin ingredients: it is anchored by the Ethiopian heirlooms in our Chelchele Washed single-origin offering, complemented by the Bourbon and Catuai in our Honduras Caballero Family release, and rounded out with SL-28 and SL-34 grown by the Pacika Estate in Nyeri, Kenya.
