Optimist Blend is a showcase for some of the longest-held producer relationships Flying Goat Coffee has had. The coffees in this blend are from visionary coffee farmers who achieved unparalleled quality, not at the expense of social and environmental responsibility, but because of it. Haile Gebre in Ethiopia, Ana Letis in Honduras and Ricardo Perez in Costa Rica are a few of the rock star farmers whose coffees are carefully roasted and blended to create The Optimist. We change the coffees for seasonal freshness, but Optimist Blend will always provide the reliable characteristics that come from meticulous farming: eye-rolling aromatics, with sweetness, balance and dimension in the cup. Every time we drink Optimist Blend, we are thoroughly hopeful for coffee’s future.
