The Barracks Blend is named for Jefferson Barracks, which is located halfway between Commitment Coffee's headquarters and our roasting partner's facility. Jefferson Barracks was established in 1826, becoming the first permanent U.S. Army base located west of the Mississippi River. Today it serves as one of the oldest internment sites administered by the National Cemetary Association and it contains a VA Hospital serving the medical needs of veterans in the St. Louis region. Every time we drive past Jefferson Barracks, we are reminded of the sacrifice made by so many to protect our freedom and it reinforces the importance of our Mission - to Support Military Families by helping to provide for their familiies' education needs.
The Barracks Blend is a precise mix of medium and 'Full City' roasted beans. The Full City roast is our Dark roast and it keeps the beans at temperature just past the first crack...delivering a slightly carmelized taste and fuller body than medium roasted beans. We source these arabica beans from South and Central America and mix this proprietary blend to deliver a consistent cup from bag to bag.
Barracks Blend brews a versatile cup with medium acidity, medium body and a full flavor. It holds up well as a pairing to sweet and savory food pairings.
Barracks Blend is a Medium-Dark roast.
