“The Bella is the wool sweater of our blends – warm, comforting, familiar. Wild and citrusy organic Ethiopian paired with earthy organic Sumatran makes for a vivid and fairly complex Mokka/Java blend. It seems to weather the rigors of the automatic drip machine as well. This is, perhaps, why it’s our most popular blend. It is also on the darker side: nice and thick without being inelegant. Bella stands up to milk or cream well, and is easily enjoyed black.”
