- About Us
Experience a trio of full and bold flavors, curated expertly, roasted with care. This makes a great gift for any coffee lover. Two of these are washed coffees, one natural from Ethiopia.
We note peach and citrus as the dominant flavor notes in this coffee. As with many great washed Ethiopian coffees we detect floral aromas in the dry grounds and wafting from the brewed coffee.
There are similarities in flavor profile to coffees from Rwanda, Burundi and Kenya. This coffee has medium acidity that is reminds us of a fresh green apple. It has a rustic, raw sugar like sweetness as well a some hints of complex florality that remind us of lavender.
Bright, ripe, sweet, syrupy blueberry with notes of black cherry. When we tasted this Worka Natural side by side with another very high quality natural from Yirgacheffe we noted excellent mouthfeel and body of this lot.
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.
