Our popular blend is taken from the nickname for Martin Henry Wolf, personification of all things robust, enigmatic engineer of charisma, and patriarch and inspiration of roaster/owners Dan and Debi Bennett. Much like its namesake, Ol’ 99 is a dark roast blend that offers intensity and boldness without becoming harsh or unpalatable.
The best coffees from Central America are combined with Indonesian coffee in a highly controlled roast environment to produce a potent brew that is both rich and weighty, but never burned, and provides just a spark of clear acidity. Roasted sweet potatoes and perfectly grilled skirt steak come to mind in a freshly rendered cup of Ol’99 Blend.
For the most full-bodied presentation, coarsely grind a fresh batch and promptly French press this coffee. Be prepared for an instant injection of fortitude and gusto, and just the slightest whiff of mischief.
