This is the best coffee I have ever had. Fresh. Interesting. Fulfilling. Complex. Satisfying. Thank you.
Love this coffee!
Despite the cost increase accounting for supply chain and inflation, this club still provides maximum value for the best beans out there! Love supporting the local roaster that tops all other coffees I’ve had!
I've been a member for almost a year. All the coffee I've gotten has been fantastic and so fresh. They've nailed the tasting club concept with perfect curation and selection of flavors every time. I only wish there was a way to go into my account online and see which coffees came in each shipment, then rate and reorder those specific beans. Maybe an email prompt asking me to rate the coffees a week or two after each shipment? I need this because I like everything so much that I have trouble remembering which bean I liked most when I go to order supplemental bags in between shipments!
Black Oak Tasting Club
Unusual high quality coffee. Fresh roast. Delicious. I recommend it.
I am so happy to have found BOCR about 2 years ago. I've tried many local and mail order coffee roasters and Black Oak is astounding for their consistent ability to churn out amazing beans from coffees all over the world. Hats off to you guys!
Black Oak is without a doubt one of the best coffee roasters in the country. I can say that without hyperbole, I've lived and traveled all over the country a great deal, always searching for the best cup of coffee and very few have even come close to Black Oak. So much thought goes in the beans the select, the ethics and quality, to deliver artistically roasted, single origin beans. The level of craft cannot be topped and with the tasting club you will be treated to the best available varieties of coffee. PLUS you get additional discounts as a member to restock after you run out. It's the best deal available for a coffee aficionado and you are supporting the lord's work when you contribute to these brilliant artists!
Black Oak is the two time national roasting champion, and our head roaster is a US Champion in coffee tasting (yes, that’s a thing). We screen over 100 coffees per month to choose your selections.
You won’t find a better value on perfectly roasted single-origin coffee. With free shipping and 20% off all orders, Black Oak Tasting Club offers unmatched value for a top-tier coffee subscription.
Black Oak is an official partner of World Coffee Research. We contribute towards cutting edge research to improve the livelihoods of coffee farmers and source from community building producers.
If you like variety, value and premium quality, the Black Oak Tasting Club is for you.
Like you, we are uncompromising in our selections when it comes to quality: We screen an average over 100 of the best coffees each month from our coffee partners around the world to make our selections.
Every month you’ll get two bags of freshly roasted single origin coffee at a price that is unparalleled in terms of quality and variety. You’ll love the experience of unboxing each month’s new discovery.
We put together a graphic to show our selections from last year. As you can see, we feel that the best coffee in the world comes from East Africa and Ethiopia. You can expect almost half of your coffees to come from East Africa.
For other selections we find the best seasonal coffees from Asia, South America, and Central America. The pairing of two distinct styles of coffee can help appreciate each for its respective flavor profile.
We will often emphasize single-origins whose producers are working proactively to improve the quality of life in their communities. For example, our Female Farmer Series. In addition to sourcing from 100% female owned coffee farms, which receive large premiums for their coffee, 10% of all profits from these coffees go to support Grounds for Health. Grounds for Health screens for and treats cervical cancer in coffee producing regions.
We’re a small, tight knit team from a beautiful small town in Northern California. From our humble beginnings, our coffees have won many awards in national roasting competitions. We are the first back to back champion at the Golden Bean North America roasting championship. We were a finalist in the 2017 Good Food Awards.
Our head roaster, Steve Cuevas, was the 2017 US Taster’s Cup champion. In 2018, two of our crew qualified for the finals in the Taster’s Cup and one competed in the Brewer’s Cup Finals. We screen all our selections side by side, blind, and in multiple rounds. We always give our level best effort to bring you the very best without bias.
Perhaps most importantly (to us), we’ve developed a very loyal, very satisfied grass roots movement of coffee lovers from across the US and we work very hard to always stay inspiring, exciting and delightful.
It’s true: if you drink a lot of coffee, The Black Oak Tasting Club isn’t meant to be your only source, per se. The bottom line is that two bags allows us to offer free shipping on all deliveries.
If two bags is all you go through in a month, perfect, you only need to drink the best. If you go through more, no problem, you get 20% off any of our award winning coffees.
Many of our subscribers will re-order past months’ picks that they loved (at a fantastic value). Some will order our popular medium and dark roast blends to mix things up. Either way, all orders of two bags or more ship free.
All Black Oak Tasting Club shipments are roasted to order. As soon as your coffee is roasted, we pack and prepare for shipment within 24 hours. Our bags ship in nitrogen (an inert gas which replaces oxygen in the package) flushed one way valve bags. This means that your coffee will stay fresh at least until your next shipment arrives. Once you open the bag, we recommend that you consume it in less than two weeks for optimal flavor.
