“We’re extremely proud of Wayfarer Blend and the team that sourced, roasted and presented this exceptional coffee,” said Founder and President Greg Ubert. “Their hard work has propelled Crimson Cup to a place among the country’s top coffee roasters.” He noted that the company was named 2016 Macro Roaster of the Year by Roast magazine and was recently named one of America’s Top 25 Coffee Roasters by Men’s Journal magazine.

In each round of the America’s Best Espresso competition, Coffee Sourcing and Education Director Brandon Bir pulled shots of Wayfarer Blend for evaluation by a panel of three judges.

“It is great to share our coffee with so many wonderful coffee professionals,” Bir said. “Their feedback can only help us to continue increasing the quality of the cup to produce the best espresso possible.”

Wayfarer, which means traveler, is blended from a rotating selection of current-crop coffees. Lightly roasted, the coffee melds the syrupy, rich and smooth notes of tree nuts and chocolate with bright accents of exotic fruits.
