The Black Dog Story
The Black Dog Coffee Company was born out of a decade's long journey in search of the ultimate cup of coffee. Our efforts led to an astonishing discovery. The secret to great coffee isn't in a big brand name, fancy labels or the word "gourmet". The secret is in the bean! It turns out that most of the coffee beans we found on grocery store shelves and even in many well known coffee shops were inferior grade, over-roasted beans that had gone stale long before they even reached the shelves.
Learning this, we began to procure only the best lots of Specialty Grade green coffees from around the world and roasted small batches with fanatic care in our own home. The difference was phenomenal! We discovered flavors and nuances we didn't even know coffee could have. We realized how much impact degree of roast and freshness have on our favorite beverage and were excited to savor the variety of essence that different single origin coffees bring to our table.
Friends and neighbors urged us to share this experience with the world so today we are proud to offer you our micro-roasted Black Dog Coffee with all the care in bean selection and roasting that we use in our own home. We hope you enjoy the experience!
