- About Us
Roast level: Dark
Tasting notes: Earthy, smoky and sweet
Detailed Description: Black Bart was an outlaw of the west. He hid out just miles from our roaster during his stagecoach robbing days. Black Bart Dark is an outlaw among dark roasts. To create Black Bart we blend 3 coffees, roasted to different levels. One coffee is always roasted dark whereas the others range from medium to light. This blending style gives Black Bart its characteristic dark smoky flavor, but with layers of complex body and sweetness usually only available in lighter roasts. This coffee is designed to taste great with milk and sugar as well as have enough structure and sweetness to be delicious straight black (the way we prefer coffee around here).
Pair With: Bacon, eggs benedict, & other savory breakfast dishes.
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.
