Baby Rhino Rescue
Touched by the lives of these unique and socially complex creatures, it is the mission ofÂ Baby Rhino RescueÂ to provide physical and emotional support to the baby rhinos left behind in the wake of rampant poaching.
The vision is for each of these orphan rhinos to have a safe future in the wild, and we strongly believe that by working together we can save rhinos from extinction.
Our Medium Roast selection for Baby Rhino Rescue is a fair trade and organic version of our most popular medium roast coffee. The reason it's so popular? It tastes great.
This blend is a mix of natural (dry process) and wet processed coffees. With every batch you brew, you'll get a big, bold, sweet and fruity cup of coffee - with a long finish. The bright, sweet citric notes of the wet process and the heavy plum, fruity acidity of the dry process make a perfect combination that is bursting with flavor. Blueberries are both sweet and sour at the same time, and that juxtaposition is reflected in this coffee. As you begin to identify and define the flavor of dry-processed coffees, they begin to take on their own personality - and this medium roast has a deliciously complex personality.
Sourced from our producer-partners and small farmer cooperatives in Nicaragua, Guatemala, Peru, and Ethiopia - many of which we have been working with for over two decades. These long-standing relationships allow us to present only the finest sustainable, fair trade and organic coffees.
Coffee to Water Ratio
Using the correct amount of coffee will ensure that your coffee is brewed to strength, without over-extracting or under-extracting the coffee to compensate for an inappropriate dose. We recommend 2 grams of coffee for every fluid ounce of water used to brew. Weighing coffee is the most accurate way to measure the appropriate dose. If a scale is not available, we recommend 2 heaping tablespoons of ground coffee for every 5 ounces of water used to brew.
Producing the correct particle size in ground coffee is one of the most important steps in coffee brewing. In general, a finer grind will produce a more intense brew and a coarser grind will produce a less intense brew. At the same time, a grind that is too fine will produce an over-extracted, astringent brew, and a grind that is too coarse will produce a weak, under-extracted brew lacking flavor. In pour-over methods, grind size also affects the rate of extraction, as water will pass more slowly through a finer grind, and more quickly through a coarser grind. We strongly recommend burr grinders over blade grinders.
Water Temperature and Quality
Water temperature dramatically affects the extraction of coffee’s flavor during brewing. We recommend brewing with water at 200° Fahrenheit for best results. Using fresh, clean, chlorine-free water is essential.
