Rancho Cucamonga, Jan 12, 2023 - In celebration of their 30th anniversary, Klatch Coffee is excited to announce the release of their Vineyard Blend – a medium-light roast, with flavor notes of wine, coffee in honor of the first Klatch coffeehouse at the historic Thomas Winery in Rancho Cucamonga. Using beans sourced from some of the world’s most respected and sustainable farms, this Ethiopian-El Salvadorian blend also offers subtle hints of rose hip, framboise, and allspice.
The Vineyard Blend is available for purchase here.
Klatch started as a single shop in 1993 with the simplest of goals – serve great coffee. Their tagline “family owned, operated, and argued over” is representative of how important family is to the business, and how deep their ties run.
The flavor choice of wine for the 30th anniversary release comes from the family’s affinity for the drink – daughters Holly and Heather are both certified sommeliers. The name is also a nod to the company’s roots.
“The inspiration behind the Vineyard blend really comes from the roots of Klatch Coffee,” says founder Mike Perry. “Our original store where we started 30 years ago is located on Vineyard Ave in the oldest winery building in California.”
“So creating a blend from some of our favorite coffees that also has notes reminiscent of wine just made sense. As a family we also love wine almost as much as coffee.”
After graduating with his degree in chemical engineering, Mike began a relentless series of experiments in search of the perfectly balanced cup of coffee. Through this process he developed the “peak of flavor method”, which helped earn Klatch the distinction of “World’s Best Espresso” at the 2007 World Barista Championships.
Klatch is often cited as one of the premier roasters in the United States, and has cultivated a broad network of wholesale buyers who serve their coffee.
Klatch promises to put people and planet before profit. They maintain direct trade relationships with some of the most reputable and eco-friendly coffee farmers in the world, frequently traveling to point of origin sources to ensure that they are working with the absolute best.
This Vineyard Blend is Klatch’s thank you to their customers and a promise going forward that they’ll stay just as creative, persistent, and coffee-obsessed in the years to come.
