A River Runs Through It

Black Oak Coffee is partnering with Russian Riverkeeper to create Redd, using the blend to represent a commitment to improving the health of local watersheds. 

Every bag of Redd Seasonal Coffee purchased will send 10% of profit to fund Russian Riverkeeper’s work of protecting the river that connects our cafes and communities.

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.

David Gallagher
A good coffee overall

This is a very pleasant coffee - makes a good cup of coffee be it via my ECM espresso machine or MocaMaster drip brewer. Was hoping for more of the "berry" and "red fruit" notes, but really couldn't get a taste of these in the cup - flavor was balanced with the milk chocolate undertone. The aroma was good/fresh with a touch of fruitiness to it.

I love the fruit smell

It's different from the classic Heartwood, but it could successfully bring the fresh in this warm season. It goes perfectly well with milk, love the seaonal products of Black Oak.

This is the best darn coffee EVER. Wandered in while in town for a dental appointment, and was blown away. Got home and called to see what did I drink?!? And ordered the 1st of many bags to come of this magical elixer.

Best Black Oak offering so far!

This one displaces Honduras Roaster's reserve as my favorite Black Oak coffee. Simply delicious.

Smooth with a Long Finish

I got this to mix it up from my favorites, Black Bart and Roasters Reserve. This landed right in the middle for me, the rich smooth start, with mid peaks and an engaging finish. I used this with oat milk for lattes with a little sugar. Delicious.
