If you’re new to blends, here are some mixing guidelines to get you started. Just go drop by drop and trust your nose. Here’s a pro tip: Smell coffee beans before you breathe in the aroma. It’s the olfactory version of palette cleansing and will help you smell the true scent much easier. Now go and have fun!
