Redd Tasting Notes
A blend of a berry forward natural process Ethiopian coffee and a full-bodied, mellow South American coffee. 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.
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.
