If you’re not sure where to start with small lot coffee from Trader Joe’s, here are some options to try: Arroyo Bonito Estate Dominican Republic Small Lot Coffee, Zamora Ecuador Small Lot Coffee, and Indian Pearl Mountain Small Lot Coffee. Oftentimes, the small lot options are sold at Trader Joe’s in a limited capacity, so these may not currently be available at your local TJ’s, but they’ll give you a glimpse into what to expect.
The Arroyo Bonito Estate is a medium roast with notes of dried cherry, raisin, and plum. Meanwhile, the Zamora Ecuador option is another medium roast and contains flavors such as dark chocolate and nutmeg with a full-bodied taste. Finally, Indian Pearl Mountain — which Tasting Table ranked as the fifth best Trader Joe’s coffee roast — tastes of milk chocolate and dried figs. Each variety is guaranteed to offer a dynamic and interesting coffee experience.
All in all, whatever your preferred coffee taste is, Trader Joe’s is likely to have a small lot roast that will be perfect for you — and, because it’s from a small lot, you know it will be as fresh as possible.
