JAZ Improv : Traveler Series - Black Forest Blend

This is a go-to comfort coffee with the warmth of chocolate and cherry. A perfect dessert coffee when you want something dark, delicious, and totally unique! 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, please choose ground or whole bean.

  2. 5 Star Review Flavored coffee done right!!

    I did not like flavored coffee at all, until I tried Len’s. Natural flavorings and high quality beans are a winning combination for all of Len’s flavored varieties and this Black Forest Blend is especially lovely. Perfect for dessert or the morning

  4. 5 Star Review Dessert coffee

    The Black Forest Blend is absolutely fab! Not overly sweet and the aroma reminds me of the cherry chocolates I ate when I was a youngster. I have ordered it twice and will be keeping it on my list.

  5. 3 Star Review Smells nice, no WOW factor

    This Black Forest scented coffee is perfectly serviceable to drink but doesn't really have any stand out qualities. It is nicely priced at its quality point.

The Araku Valley of India

India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
