Why Black Oak Tasting Club?

Black Oak Tasting Club is for (coffee) lovers. We ship two of our favorite coffees from around the world each month. We are uncompromising in our selections when it comes to quality. We screen an average of fifty of the best coffees each month from our coffee partners around the world to make our selections.

How will the coffee change throughout the year?

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 24 shipments to come from East Africa. For the remaining selections we are going to find the best seasonal coffees from Asia, South America, and Central America. We will occasionally select a blend, we shipped two in the past year, if we feel that it meets our high standards.

Why Black Oak?

We screen all our selections side by side, blind, and in multiple rounds. We are giving you our level best effort bring you the best without bias. 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. Finally, our selections have won many awards in national roasting competitions. We are the first back to back champion at the Golden Bean roasting championship. We were a finalist in the 2017 Good Food Awards. Best of ALL, each one of our award winning coffees of 2018 will be featured in Tasting Club selections.

Two Bags Per Month?

The tasting club is not meant to be your only source of coffee. 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 qualify for a discount on any re-orders. Two bags allows us to offer free shipping on all deliveries.

What about freshness?

Our bags ship in nitrogen(an inert gas which replaces oxygen in the package) flushed one way valve bags. This means that the whole bean 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.

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.
