Friends, we have a safe, easy way for you to pick up organic coffee beans, Grist bread, chai, and more at our Missoula shop. Place orders at the link HERE https://pickupblackcoffee.square.site by noon on Sundays for Tuesday pickups, and by noon Tuesdays for Thursday pick up. All pickups are PRE-ORDER ONLY. We will hand orders out the front door. No contact or public exposure. Please give others space if a line is formed. Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you all.
We are part of a global community and are trying to do our part…
In light of the current outbreak of coronavirus we are taking proactive measures to keep our employees and community safe. While we already have extensive cleaning protocols in place we are increasing these to include hourly sanitizing of doors, chairs, tables, and all things that get touched. If you are suffering from a fever and/or respiratory illness we kindly ask that you do not come in. Per CDC recommendations we are monitoring travel and health of our employees.
For the immediate future we have implemented $2 per 12 oz. bag shipping and FREE SHIPPING on all 2# and 5# bags, anywhere in the US. This includes people in Missoula, so if you are wanting to reduce public exposure we are able to get you coffee right to your door.
While we are heavily committed to sustainability for the current time we are not taking cups across the counter to fill with espresso drinks. You are still able to use your own cup for drip coffee self-serve. When this outbreak is over we will return to filling the cups you bring in.
While we love our customers and are known to shake hands and give high fives, we are asking that for the time being a friendly hello and smile suffice to reduce contact.
For the time being we are not able to refill your bag or container with whole beans and are only selling freshly bagged coffees, available in 12 oz, 2#, and 5# bags, all of which still come with a free cup of coffee.
This is evolving situation and new to us as much as it is to you. We thank you for your patience as things play out here. We are doing our best to maintain best practices and keep you in delicious coffee while keeping our community members as healthy as possible.
We’ve had a lot of requests over the years for a darker blend. While our primary style of roasting lies solidly in the middle-leaning-light, we have shied away from a truly dark blend based on personal preference.. Our focus on roasting has always been to highlight the nuanced characteristics of each coffee crop. But as we’ve grown, we’ve also opened up to new ideas. More people have come to us asking for a coffee sourced in the same quality manner we do our others, but with a darker roast. They want to support organics, fair trade with farmers, fair wages and community support, but crave a little more edge on their coffee roast. We’ve listened. And we’ve worked hard to develop a new coffee blend specifically for these people. Introducing the Dark. It is, like all our coffees, 100% organic. Ethically sourced (fairly traded). With a roast we worked hard to hone in on, creating a darker flavor that makes for a solid, robust coffee. The Dark is a coffee that is truly dark.
The Dark is how people dream of drinking coffee in Paris, circa 1990.
The Dark is your favorite diner, tucked in a small town in the Cascades.
The Dark is black as a moonless night.
Roast level, full 6. Fair warning, if a coffee like our Guatemala or AM is already your favorite, this may not be your jam, but for those that have been craving something truly darker… The Dark.
Cheers Friends. Enjoy the coffee.
