***The ingredients of our blends will change according to the availability of our single origins, however we work to ensure that the basic flavor profiles change very little.***
 
A note on coffee availability and seasonality:
 
Coffee is a produce item with harvest times that circle the globe as the seasons change. Coffee can be stored in the green state for a limited amount of time before it’s positive cup qualities begin to fade. BJRC is committed to sourcing and stocking the freshest fair trade organic coffee as possible. 
 
In most cases, all “out of season” instances are intentional on our part, as we have moved to a seasonal approach to reserving and stocking our green coffees. In some cases, the logistics of moving coffee half way around the world will cause us to be temporarily out of a certain coffee, but these instances are very rare. 
 
We will make every effort to stock as many varieties as possible. Please know that when we are cycling into a new harvest and dropping older coffee off our availability chart, it is for the simple reason of maintaining the highest quality as possible. Thank you, and please let us know if you have any questions.
