Alton Brown’s special Multitasker is a blend of 60 percent Nicaraguan, 25 percent Costa Rica, and 15 percent Sumatra coffee beans. On his site, the chef says the tasting notes of the Multitasker are “toffee, black cherries, toasted sesame seeds, and just a dash of old library book … in a good way” (via Alton Brown).
Though the coffee beans are arabica beans, Brown states that the flavors come from the “differences in terroir, that is where and how they’re grown, harvested, and processed means each brings distinct characteristics to the cup.”
The coffee, Brown explains, is called the Multitasker because it’s designed to taste rich and flavorful no matter what brew method you use. The coffee can be brewed using a French press, a pour-over method, an electric drip machine, or a moka pot.
The Multitasker costs $16.50 for a 12-ounce bag of coffee. Customers can choose to purchase whole beans or can get their coffee ground to order.
