Borderline.
Are we Borderline crazy? No.
Borderline Patriotic? No. We’re full on Patriotic! Murica!
Giving you Borderline good coffee? Ha. Also no.
This coffee, like our others, is straight up legit stuff.

This roast is for our brothers and sisters in green. Many of us have spent years living on the line that separates our country and our neighbor to the south, Mexico. Whether you have spent a year or a couple decades on this border, this coffee’s for you. It’s a strange world. We’ve seen some interesting things, probably been cussed out, made hard decisions, and sacrificed much. At the same time, we’ve had fun too. You know you have. Our role is a little different than that of normal police. It’s what keeps things exciting. I’m proud to have worked with you, to be one of you, and to call you all brothers.

And don’t think you’re off the hook if you’re not working on “The Line”. Get some of this delicious coffee, brew it up and enjoy. While you do, remember, there are guys and gals on duty at all times, doing everything they can to make a difference.

Mexico just happens to produce some high quality, great tasting coffee. It seemed fitting to use some of their coffee beans for our Borderline Roast. This particular coffee comes from Chiapas Mexico, as always a focus on quality and flavor.

We get these beans from Cafe Imports.  Below is what they say about the CABONOCH Co-op and their relationship with them:

***********************

CABONOCH is a fair-trade certified cooperative that stands for Cafeticultores de los Bosques del Norte de Chiapas. Located in the Altos de Chiapas region of Mexico, this cooperative represents smallholder producers in the surrounding areas that are harvesting ripe cherries, processing them washed on their own organic-certified farms, and delivering their coffee in parchment form to the warehouse for purchase and approval. 

Chiapas is the southernmost region of Mexico. The mountains of this region span into bordering Guatemala and much of this tropical forest is the protected Triunfo Biosphere Reserve. This area is humid and tropical, inhabited by small communities of producers who have formed cooperatives to gain stronger representation in the coffee market. These producers take pride in their land, growing coffee organically through methods passed down from generation to generation.

***********************
This organic raw coffee is grown in ways that preserves and protects the environment, and also produces a consistent, high quality cup.

Tasting notes: cocoa, mild almond and pecan, mellow acidity and sweetness

We had gotten ourselves into a bit of a routine with our coffee and wanted to try something different. Battleborn’s “Borderline” roast was a great choice. It offers just the right amount of bitter (think: unsweet cocoa) for me and a perfect note of piñon nut to keep it interesting as an everyday choice. Try it with a sprinkle of cinnamon! Thank you, Battleborn, for always bringing consistently excellent choices to our coffee world.

Borderline and Lexington are my favorites. I’ve always added creamer to my coffee but I definitely enjoy these two plain black.
