The San Francisco company’s fourth, and limited edition Fore! blend, from Colombia’s Nariño region and from San Jose Poaquil in Guatemala, is reminiscent of a peach lemonade—it’s even better without sweetener, so as to let the fruity notes shine through. It’s great as an iced brew as well.

The golf-related name is not accidental. “Fore!’s flavor reminds us of an Arnold Palmer, so naturally we looked to golf for the name. It’s also our fourth coffee release, or as I call it, coffee number Fore!” said Umeko Motoyoshi, head of coffee at Sudden.

If you’re wondering how the company packs such complexity in their instant coffee, it is because after some careful sourcing, they first brew each coffee for optimal flavor, and then dry and blend afterwards.
