Single Origin vs. Blends: What’s the Difference?!

Single Origin vs. Blends. What is the difference between the two?

single vs blends
Comparing single origin coffees and blends is really an apples and oranges type situation. Single origin coffees are praised for their unique tasting notes and nuances, whereas blends are more well-rounded and focus on taste, smell, and mouthfeel (the physical sensation of the coffee in your mouth).

Here are a few key differences between blends and single origin coffees to fill your cup with:

Single Origin Coffees


If you’re looking for more of a crazy coffee adventure, try a single origin coffee that explodes with a variety of flavors in each sip. Slate’s Ethiopia Kilenso is a great single origin coffee with an irresistible aroma and notes of strawberry, blueberry, and powdered cocoa. If you want something satisfying and all around delicious, go for a blend such as Herkimer’s Drip Blend, Conduit’s Westlake Blend, or Fundamental’s Stemwinder Blend. Picking between a single origin coffee or blend is all about preference, so choose your favorite and get to drinking. You’re officially in the coffee know.
