Why do coffee and cycling go hand-in-hand? It’s 5 a.m., your legs and body are shredded, and it’s time for another meet up with the boys and girls to pound out some miles, but first your body needs a jumpstart. If you’re looking for a nicely roasted bean and well brewed cup of coffee, look no further than 53×11.
53×11 Organic Coffee
The nutritional gurus at Hammer Nutrition also know how to roast some beans, or have connections to some quality roasters to provide their line of 53×11 Organic Coffee. Their line-up of organic coffee features 3 blends, well 4 if you count the decaf. Sorry guys, just a little 7:30 am humor.
Originally created by cyclists, for cyclists, 53×11 Coffee today is dedicated purely to delivering great organic, fair-trade coffee to cyclists, outdoor enthusiasts and coffee lovers in general. 53×11 Coffee utilizes only sustainable organic, pesticide-free farms, and supports trade wages and direct purchasing to give more to those growing the beans.
53×11 Coffee Offers a Great Pour-Over
We brewed all 4 blends of 53×11 coffee with a Hario style or Chemex pour over style brewer using pre-ground beans. All 4 flavors were great! The Big Ring was our favorite and we were extremely impressed with the flavor offered by the decaf.
All coffees are available in 12 oz. bags of ground (cone drip) or whole bean and retail for $13.95. Check out the full lineup at hammernutrition.com.
The Big Ring
Our favorite for a nice pour-over, the Big Ring is 100% organic Sumatra single origin coffee, medium roasted and shade grown under a canopy of diverse species of trees that provide a viable habitat for migratory birds. The Big Ring represents the classic Sumatran flavor profile with low acidity and full body. Available in 12 oz. bags of ground (cone drip) or whole bean.
The Chain Breaker
The Chain Breaker is the signature espresso blend and is the perfect choice for those who favor a darker roast. This rich, nutty blend is perfect for espresso or drip use. The Chain Breaker consists of beans from Africa, Indonesia, and the Americas which results in a complex, yet smooth cup.
Coffee Tip: Use a pour-over coffee maker such as a Chemex or Hario. It will elevate your coffee brewing to a new level. You can buy one for less then the cost of a bike tire. Try it, you won’t be disappointed”
The Early Break
The Early Break is another blend that could easily become a morning staple at the office. This medium-roasted blend of Central, South American, and Sumatran beans represents a well-rounded, mildly acidic cup with a clean finish. The Early Break is a great “everyday” coffee. As you can tell, we prefer the lighter roast.
The Down Shift
The Down Shift, a decaffeinated version of the beloved Chain Breaker signature espresso blend. No shortcuts were taken here and we loved this decaf. This blend represents the four major coffee growing regions as well, resulting in a remarkable decaf. Available in 12 oz. bags of ground (cone drip) or whole bean.
53×11 Coffee is Organic
With coffee being a highly chemically treated crop, 53×11 understands the importance of offering consumers the option to buy and drink certified organic. The chemicals from conventionally grown coffees are harmful to the coffee pickers out in the field, consumers and the environment. 53×11 coffees are certified organic by Quality Assurance International and abide by the U.S. National Organic Program standards (there are links below if you would like to learn more.) This means that they are grown without pesticides, herbicides, or other chemicals, which benefits the coffee producers and the consumers. For larger crop yield without chemicals, the growers use sustainable farming methods (crop rotation, terracing, composting, etc.) This results in richer soil, greater biodiversity, and healthier ecosystems. Certified organic coffee not only benefits your health, but it also supports the environment. By purchasing oraganic coffees you are choosing to make a difference towards a more sustainable way of life for everyone.
