Note: This product is now finished. Current stock is left over from last weeks roast. Still tasty!
It's finally here! Inspired by the African (Cape) Buffalo, an animal so dangerous that someone had to make it even scarier by giving it the nickname, "Black Death".
We've taken two of our finest, tastiest beans from South America and then, (to the horror of every specialty-coffee producer ever) roasted them to oblivion.
This is the darkest of dark coffee. A veritable face punch of charred caffeine. It’s banned from just about every cafe in Australia and, honestly, we think it should require a special license to acquire.
But our mates at Blood Origins requested this one and we never want to let our mates down, so here it is. Brace for impact.
Expect notes of cacao and (really) toasted almonds with low acidity, full body and high bitterness.
You can get this one in 500g whole beans or a 25 pack of Pre-Loaded Single-Serve Drip Filters and it'll be available until end of July (or until stock runs out).
This one will also be roasted in limited quantities each week due to the nature of super dark roasts… it will be oily as heck and begin to lose flavour much sooner than a lighter-roasted coffee.
Don't say we didn't warn you.
Our coffee is roasted fresh each week and is available in a variety of profiles to suit your taste:
Red Stag™ is our signature medium roast. Like your trusty .308 - it's proven, reliable and versatile. This is a super smooth coffee and our most popular roast for good reason.
Sambar™ is our heavy-hitting dark roast. This is the .50cal of the coffee world. Full-bodied with a bold flavour, it's perfect for those who like a little more oomph in their coffee.
Full Send™ is a rich and super smooth brew with bold notes of chocolates and nuts balanced with some caramel sweetness. It's punchier than our Red Stag roast but without the bitterness of our Sambar roast.
Chamois™ is an exciting blend of premium beans from the best coffee growing regions across the world. With distinctly smooth, caramel and juicy citrus notes, you can expect a syrupy mouthfeel with a lingering chocolatey aftertaste. There’s just a slight citric hit at the end which really balances the coffee out well. We like this one as a milk based espresso or black filter.
Wapiti ™ is our wildcard roast where we explore unique flavours of coffees from across the world. Each month the coffee will change; new beans, roast style or blends. You'll never really know what you're getting but our promise is to always use the highest quality beans we can get our hands on and do our best to bring the best out of them. It's a little caffeinated adventure into the unknown.
