- About Us
Like a winemaker choosing the location and climate for its unique flavor potential, Lovers Lane Farm yields premium quality honey by placing hives strategically in seasonal flower sources and distinct climates. The result is a delicious, colorful array of flavorful honey, made in the same spirit and with similar subtleties to a fine, well produced wine.
Each season’s batch is consistently excellent and has its own unique taste year after year, depending on the weather, soil, and plants in the immediate area of the hive. For food connoisseurs it is a gold mine of character. For those who like a little sweetness, Lovers Lane Farm honey is uncommonly delightful. Also happens to pair tremendously with Black Oak Coffee.
A cup of coffee is practically a religious experience for us. We revere it, we crave it and we anticipate brewing and drinking it every day. Every coffee has a story, a history of soil, people and culture that make each one special. And it’s that combination that keeps us curious to learn about and eager to experience the next cup.
Even here in Northern California’s wine country, we believe that coffee has no culinary peer. Over 400 flavor compounds make up the unique aroma and taste that we experience when we smell and drink it. It’s that moment of astonishment at the cupping table when we crack the crust of a coffee with the right combination of those 400 compounds that drives us to find the best and highest quality lots available anywhere.
At Black Oak Coffee Roasters, we seek to express the true origin character of our coffees. Origin character is what tells the coffee’s story most vividly. We look for ripe, voluptuous sweetness and body to carry the coffee’s personality over the palate. And we want our coffee to linger in your head after you’ve tasted it, like a passage from your favorite novel.
