Blends need an image overhaul. They’ve developed a bad rap, and I don’t think that’s fair. I feel like blends are getting pushed to the side in favor of single origin/farm microlots and that the predominate conception of blends is as a way to hide bad coffee. But blends aren’t about hiding bad coffee, blending is a skill that’s all about building something that’s greater than the sum of its parts.
