Black Currant | Fig | Toasted Marshmallow
Named after a certain amp shrouded in mystery that was reportedly used to record one of the seminal debut albums of the classic rock era, Black Magick is our take on the darker side of coffee. We don't roast any beans to the point that they taste burnt, but we do take this blend right to the edge of our comfort zone. The key to our approach is that the coffee remains fruity, sweet, and balanced--there are no bitter or harsh flavors, no smoky ashtray notes, just a lush and deeply satisfying cup that redefines what a dark roast can be. 12oz. or 5lb. bag of whole beans.
