If you’re a coffee drinker, you have a roastinality. Some of us like our coffee dark and bold while some prefer a light and easy blend. Others take the middle road and opt for a medium roast with a smooth finish. My initial coffee preference was the medium roast with a lot of sugar and cream. Today, I work with a group of men who drink what many would call mud but a darker, bolder coffee has become my way of life. Read on to discover how J. Brooks Coffee can help you find your new favorite blend!
The Roastinality Blends
As a coffee drinker of a mere seven years, I have tried several blends to find the one that is just right. I’m always open to trying a variety because as I age, I know tastes can change and have often surprised myself at how much of a good thing different can be.
The Lighter Line Up
Are you an early riser, a get-up-and-go, no fuss kind of person? The light blends are a light body with a toasted grain taste and hold more of the original flavors of the bean. Lighter blends also retain more caffeine than darker roasts.
Morning Mercy – A bright, friendly, good-for-the-heart kind of coffee – a blend of Central & South American coffees
Starlight – A blend for perky, busy, + scheduled coffee drinker. The Starlight motto is:
“I can do it all, single-handedly. And I will, because my other hand is holding an excellent cup of coffee.”
The Medium Line Up
Are you a confident, relaxed, and personable in nature? Or possibly a newbie to coffee? The medium roasts are probably exactly what you’re looking for in a cup. Enjoy a cup of smoothness that gives you a more balanced flavor, aroma, and acidity.
The Spirit of Memphis – A well-rounded body medium blend that has sweet traces of sweetness and serves a diverse group of people.
Colombian – For the guy who seems to have it all and the woman who radiates charisma. Features notes of fruit, nuts, and a touch of spice.
The Dark Line Up
Cafe Noel – Bring a little Christmas to your lips every day with this signature blend. It’s robust and gives you a candy bar for your taste buds!
Onyx – A robust cup without the bitter flavor. If you’re looking for a unique, rich, endless flavor, this is the one you want!

- 1 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose)
- 3/4 cup sugar (granulated)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 eggs (large)
- 1/3 cup oil
- 5 oz milk (evaporated)
- 1/2 cup blueberries (fresh)
- 1 tsp lemon juice (fresh)
- 1 tbsp lemon zest (fresh)
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 2-3 tbsp lemon juice
Preheat your oven to 350° F.
Spray loaf pan with non-stick baking spray or rub with butter.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest together. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, oil, milk, and lemon juice together.
Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Stir just until the batter forms. Over-stirring the mixture can make for a heavier bread.
Carefully fold in your blueberries.
Pour into your prepared pan and bake for approximately 40 minutes – or until a toothpick comes out clean from the thickest area of bread.
Remove from loaf pan and allow to cool.
Prepare frosting by mixing the lemon juice with powdered sugar. If it’s too thin, add more powdered sugar, 1 tbsp. at a time. If too thin, add a tbsp. of lemon juice at a time.
Pour the frosting on top of the bread.
Slice and enjoy with your coffee!
