Darker Roast

Reclaiming dark roasts from the realm of less-than-great coffee, we take some of our best and roast them with care in Forty-Six to create something complex, sweet, clean, smoky, and nuanced. This coffee was originally recipe #46; hence the name.

Blend Components: 50% Cariamanga, Ecuador / 30% Jabanto Natural, Ethiopia / 20% Watadara, Ethiopia

This coffee may come in temporary packaging due to supply shortages.

Story

Coffee blends need to change in order to stay the same. In order to maintain a particular flavor profile, you have to monitor the flavors of the component coffees and roasts in the blend. We do that with singular focus, identifying the flavors that make Forty-Six delicious, finding freshly harvested coffees that have those flavors, and bringing them together in an intentional way. In 2007, we were able to certify Forty-Six as organic, adding the dimension of sustainability to its attributes.
