Make Friends with Blends

In light of the release of Shrub Espresso #1, I wanted to talk a bit about blends. It's been heartening to see more and more people sharing the components of their espresso blends either on the grinders or on some sort of signage, it speaks to the idea that you can still be transparent with your coffees and still promote them individually even in the context of a blend.
