Blueberry | Blackberry | Dark Chocolate
Medium-full roast. Inspired by the legendary guitar amplifiers that nearly defined the classic rock era, this blend does not shy away from full throttle tones of sweet chocolate and blue/black fruit. But we don’t roast to “11,” because burnt beans taste like ashtrays. We roast to “6” or “7,” where a little natural distortion (roast character) enhances the underlying sonic profile (sweetness and complexity). 12oz. or 5lb. bag of whole beans.
