Meticulously curated & roasted to highlight the flavors of fall, our signature medium-light espresso blend is cozy, comforting and complex. Roasted to create a balanced blend, perfect for espresso or traditional brewing, that embodies the unique flavor and joy of the season. Redd is named after the keystone salmon spawning grounds on the Russian River, which connect our cafes.

Redd Tasting Notes
Redd:Autumn's rich body & flavor profile complement the season incredibly well. Sweet notes of milk chocolate and honey make up the thick body of the cup which is rounded out by the subdued tartness of dried red fruit. Finishes with the subtle, sweet, buttery, earthy notes of roasted hazelnut and chestnut.
Our Choice for In-House Espresso
The name Redd is a tribute to the salmon of the Russian River that connects both of Black Oak’s cafes as well as Mendocino and Sonoma county. This blend is used for espresso in both of our cafes. The composition of the blend is updated seasonally. This allows us to seamlessly transition between the most freshly harvested green coffee, while capturing the essence of the seasons.
Redd is carefully crafted to have the exceptional balance necessary to produce extraordinary cups of light espresso while maintaining a nuanced flavor that helps enhance the joys that are unique to the changing seasons.
We recommend starting with a 1:16 brew ratio. Using less water will add to the body of the cup and concentrate the heavier chocolate notes. 205°F water works well for Redd:Winter
Roast Level: Medium/Light
