Intellectual Curiosity (February 2016 Limited Blend)

This is an age of ever-increasing possibilities. Access to information is limitless.
New scientific techniques bring old and fundamental truths to light. Discourse is held at a global level. Mysteries are demystified as vast chasms in our society are bridged. 
Our collective cognitive resources are greater than ever before. Knowing ourselves and truly seeking to understand the world around us is the basis of compassion, and the key to our greatest innovations. 
Let's think critically, question bravely, and abandon bias in pursuit of something greater...
Is it really February? As in the second month of 2016, half way through winter? It seems so, which means that it's time for Intellectual Curiosity, an annual blend in its fifth year. 

We took you to the depths of space with January's limited release, Nordic Thunder; a wild blend featuring an aquavit cask-conditioned madness, not intended for the tame caffeine junkies. Intellectual Curiosity,brings you back to earth's orbit, (probably near the gravitational pull of the moon) with an Ethiopian earth-funk-fruit-bomb of a blend. Classified as one of our Light Speed coffees, this blend combines an Ethiopian coffee paired with a Caturra from Finca San Jeronimo in Guatemala. Celebrating the fun and exciting flavors that are anchored by a rich, dark chocolate flavor (think of a 60% dark chocolate bar) with juicy, fruity flavors that continue to open up as the coffee cools.
