Rich flavor...

Living in rural Virginia I brew my own coffee, otherwise it's Dunkin or when shopping an hour away I've got Starbucks. Visiting Eugene this month I found FU thru a family recommendation - and this coffee woke me to something new. The flavor was unlike anything I've ever had. I'll be ordering this soon.

It's delicious. (Hey Eddie. Maybe you'll see this. Hope you are well)

We are die hard Farmers Union (FU) fans and at any given time we have four or five of their different beans available to select our morning and afternoon jolts.

We first tried the FU Jinotega last year (before they sold out) and it was one of our favorites. It is finally back!!

We use the Jinotega for straight espresso, from a Rancilio Silvia, and the flavor profile/crema is fantastic! I am generally not one to follow the flavor descriptions of others - we all taste things differently and like different flavors. That said, I find the FU Jinotega to be one of the best balanced when it comes to nuttiness, sweetness, and chocolate notes. There are other, more subtle flavors in there as well but those are the flavors that each person tends to taste differently.

If you have never been inside FU roasters, it is worth the stop. The owners are almost always there on weekdays and the roaster can frequently be seen in operation. The staff is also more than happy to answer any questions. If you like their coffee and plan to drink it regularly, I would suggest buying it online, in their larger volume formats (e.g. 2 or 5 pound). This brings the price per pound down and we split the larger volume bags with family/friends. FU roasts twice per week, so you need to order ahead if you want to pick your beans up. They also ship but we prefer picking it up because you get a free cup of coffee and we like talking to the owners and staff.
