This is a go-to comfort coffee made for the cold days of winter when you want something dark and delicious. The base is our chocolatey Deep Forest Roast St. Domingos beans from the Volcano Coffee Co. We add Indian Robusta for back-palate satisfaction and Catimor for its fruity notes.
Black Forest Cake, one of the world's favorite bakery treats
There are many legends around the origin of the Black Forest Cake, but our favorite places the origin as early as the 1600's in Der Schwarzwald (Black Forest) region of Baden-Wttemberg (That is not a misspelling). The name Schwarzwald evokes darkness and mystery, coming from the concept of "forest loneliness" (Waldeinsamkeit). During this era, chocolate first found its way into cookies and cakes, and was paired with the area's famous Morello cherries, from which the liquor called Kirshwasser is created. Add whipped heavy cream and you have one of the world's most famous desserts.
To do honor to this lovely comfort food, we created a Deep Forest Dark Roast of Brazil St. Domingos coffee, noted for its chocolate tones. And we added the essence of cherry and cream to complete the delight. This new JAZ Improv coffee is a sipping or dessert coffee, but we won't tell if you want to load up a big travel tumbler and enjoy it on your way to work. We hope our Black Forest Blend delivers visions of bucolic beauty, peace, calm... and a little note of mystery to your day.
8 ounce bags, we only have ground coffee available - no whole bean.
