We get a lot of requests for our Dark Roast, especially from our clients who love that deep, dark aromatic whiff of strong coffee in the morning. It is bold, flavorful and just the right amount of "roasty" flavor while your body kicks into gear to keep you going.
The Guatemala Organic SMBC Jose La Laguna is a bean derived from a farm with a long history of being environmentally conscious. Roberto Orantes, the owner, obtained his organic certification in 2004. Knowing that since 1970, bird population has decreased by 29% (about 3 billion birds), Roberto wanted to ensure his coffee farm did not deplete natural bird habitat, as some farming does when clearing land. By working with the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Conservatory to ensure the right combination of foliage coverage, tree height and biodiversity, he earned the right to be certified as Bird Friendly. When you drink Bird Friendly certified coffee, you brew a more diverse, sustainable world.
Tradition is proud to support this effort, not only because its the right thing to do, but also because this level of consciousness shines through in the quality of the bean. You will discover fruity notes when you take a deep breath of this aromatic cup, yet surprise your tastebuds with pepper and spice. We enjoyed this combination and are excited to share it with you.
