The Giggles Blend was my first creation of a coffee blend. Before Chazzano Coffee Roasters or Chazzano Cafe, there was the Giggles Blend. I have a strange sense of humor that I inherited from my mother, of blessed memory. My puerile, sophomoric, and extremely dry jokes would produce giggles from my wife. Hence the name. The creation of a blend is completely unscientific. The main questions when tasting a prospective blend are, “Is this blend special? Is the flavor profile different from any of the single origin coffees that I roast? Does it enrich your life?” When experiencing a blend, do you stop after a few sips and sigh while exclaiming “wow?” If the answer is no, then it’s not right for you. Rarely do we dislike the taste of any of our experimental coffee blends. It’s just that we have so many awesome coffees that the blend really needs to be so awesome that it literally changes your life.
The Giggles Blend has a syrupy mouthfeel with intense spicy aromatics, with the sweetness of nutmeg and cinnamon. It is a blend of four different coffees from Ethiopia, Indonesia, and Central America. The Giggles Blend has a huge body when brewed in a Vacuum Syphon and intense cardamom, nutmeg, and peppery notes when brewed in a French Press.
What were my next two creations? Frank’s Blend #1 and The Lunch Cafe Blend.
