A blend of our Viva La Noche, Natural Ethiopia Mormora, and Colombia Santa Maria, this coffee boasts aromatics of sweet oak. The initial sip coats the tongue with rich dark chocolate, almost like chocolate ice cream. After another sip, the coffee gets smokier and tastes like dark cherry. As it cools down, it gets sweeter and tastes like baking spices- perfect for a sunny Fall day.
It all started on a late Fall day when Deb, our vivacious owner, went to a yard sale that was hosted by our dear friend, Dan Kobe-Smith. She came across a picture of a painting of a laughing skeleton head and decided to purchase it. “It made me think of laughing at Winter”, said Deb when I asked her about the origin of the blend. The original print is hanging right outside of her office at Roast House. “It was Fall of our first year in biz- we wanted to create a special cold weather blend built around a darker (than we typically do) roast with some light roasted Ethiopian to sweeten it up”. Fast forward to 10 years later and we are still serving up some delicious Winter Brew.
