This blend was designed in an effort to reflect John Saxton's personality. Saxton is known as having been a respectable man with a strong work ethic. Traits of his character are described as being fair and honest with a belief in notions such as "for the people by the people." He was said to be mild-mannered, almost never in his life being seen to lose his temper. Mr. Saxton also wrote poetry and had a poetry section on the front of the paper, showing he was not only the hardworking serious type, but had a bright and softer side as well. Saxton Blend is a medium roast, well balanced and mild with traditional coffee flavors of chocolate, caramel and nuts with a touch of fruit and floral to represent his poetic side.
