Coffee is one of those things that I didn’t realize I liked until recently. I never understood why people could sit and drink cup after cup, and most I thought were quite bitter and tasteless. Turns out it was just how my mom made her coffee, and while I was off work for my hysterectomy, I discovered a deep love of coffee. There really isn’t anything better than sitting down with a book and a nice hot cup of joe.
Wicked Joe is an organic fair trade coffee company located in Maine. I was able to give one of their blends a whirl and I was very pleased! I was sent the Bella Maria, which has notes of chocolate, berry fruit and citrus. It was a sweeter coffee, and I enjoyed it very much.
One of my favorite things about Wicked Joe Coffee is that it is NON-GMO, and the only ingredient is Organic Arabica Coffee.

How Wicked Joe Roasts their Coffee
The Loring Smart Roast is the dream machine. Using state-of-the-art technology and the unique Flavour-Lock Roast Process, we are able to roast great coffee for you, and still be friendly to the environment.
The Flavour-Lock process creates a closed-loop roasting environment where the gas burner simultaneously superheats the spent air to incinerate the smoke and odor before they leave the roaster while also heating the clean air to the perfect temperature for roasting great coffee. By multitasking the roaster’s burner we no longer need to operate an afterburner. One burner instead of two means we can reduce our energy consumption by up to 80% all the while reducing our greenhouse gas emissions. It’s a win-win.
If that wasn’t enough, the Loring also roasts some pretty awesome tasting coffee! This is partly due to the enclosed system. This system creates a stable and ideal roasting environment that increases humidity while eliminating oxygen. Which all adds up to a consistently flavorful and nuanced cup o’ joe. And isn’t that really the most important thing?
Interesting huh? Wicked Joe takes great care in making each batch, and you can tell from the final product. I was very pleased with the coffee I received. The Bella Maria is not a strong blend, but a light/medium roast, which is perfect for me as I am not a huge fan of Dark-roast coffee. I assure you though, they have the perfect roast for everyone!
Wicked Joe has quickly become one of my favorites for drinking and relaxing. The aroma is much different in this coffee than any others I have tried before. It’s definitely something special.
For being a great coffee and also being fair trade it is also very affordable. You can purchase on their website!
