Most people’s initial encounter with a dark roast is a cup full of smoke and ash, but we think coffee should be more than that. We strive to maintain distinctive origin flavors while softening the acidity and highlighting distinctive molasses and spice characteristics. This coffee is a shining example of our craft, providing enough roast development to please those who look for deep character, but applied with a delicate hand to still deliver a true coffee experience.
The West Pole, unlike the North and South Poles, has no geographic significance whatsoever. It was declared to be so as more of a gag than anything else, and we kind've love that. It's definitely not something you would expect to find in Bee Cave, Texas (just east of our roastery) so we named our dark roast blend after it...just because.
