Hudson Blend

Hudson, our darkest offering, is a people pleaser. Warm and roasty with lots of baker’s chocolate and a long smooth finish, this is rainy day and a notebook coffee. Old friends and new stories coffee. Before you reach for the cream, try it black and see why so many others have made the switch.

The Process

Selecting and Processing

To select the best bean for our smooth coffee flavour profile, we rely on Tristan Bacon, the chief coffee buyer for 2%Jazz. Tristan examines the bright red coffee cherries through a contraption called a Brix meter to determine the ripeness and sweetness of the crop. Once the coffee cherries are harvested, they are processed and dried to produce the raw, green coffee bean. Our growers primarily use traditional methods, sometimes needing great innovation to cope with the challenges of harvesting on steep slopes and drying the beans at high elevations where the temperature swings can be dramatic.

Roasting

Roasting coffee beans is an art. The green beans that arrive at our Roastery have very little of the characteristically delicious coffee aroma that we all love so much. Roasting brings out the aroma and the flavour hidden deep in the green bean. Finding the best roast profile to make the inherent qualities of different beans shine and burst into their own is what makes the roasting process so interesting. Our goal is to always enhance the inherent characteristics of the bean. The depth and time of the roast both have their own impacts on the final flavour. Here at 2%Jazz, we offer light to dark roasts, with a range of sweetness and body to please any palette.

Enjoying

Want a taste? Head downtown to our flagship cafe on the Fisgard Street side of the Hudson Building. Sip a smooth cup of coffee, have a snack, sit and stay a while. Our staff is friendly and knowledgeable – it’s a great place to relax. Out shopping in the Hillside area? Swing by our Hillside cafe. You can also buy any of our signature blends and roasts, whole bean or ground, to enjoy our coffee at home. If none of those options work for you, you can find our coffee in many Victoria coffee shops. Visit our location page to find a cafe near you.
