|Roast Level: Dark Roast|
|Tasting Notes: Cocoa Nibs - Lingering Body|
Most people’s initial encounter with a dark roast is a cup full of smoke and ash, but we think coffee should be more than that. We strive to maintain distinctive origin flavors while softening the acidity and highlighting distinctive molasses and spice characteristics. This coffee is a shining example of our craft, providing enough roast development to please those who look for deep character, but applied with a delicate hand to still deliver a true coffee experience.
The West Pole, unlike the North and South Poles, has no geographic significance whatsoever. It was declared to be so as more of a gag than anything else, and we kind've love that. It's definitely not something you would expect to find in Bee Cave, Texas (just east of our roastery) so we named our dark roast blend after it...just because.

Dark roast means different things to different people. To us, it means that we have achieved a wonderful balance between origin flavors and roast character.
My favorite coffee so far... haven't been able to find a better match in whole Houston
Placed order in mid Dec The first shipment did not arrive so sent email and a second shipment was shipped. After the second shipment did not arrive as well I reviewed the order and notice that’s the address for billing and shipping was incorrect Sent another email describing the situation and was told they will not be able to send another shipments. So as it stands no shipment for what I paid and no resolution for replacement nor refund. I wasn’t initially asking for refund just wanted to purchase your coffee at the recommendation of friend. I wish I could say it has been a smooth transaction but as of now been a failure. I hope there is a quick resolution to this issue so I can also one day make the same recommendation to others as my friend did with me.
The flavor of this coffee once it's brewed is really good, but there's a slight acidity to it. I prefer a smoother blend so I probably won't buy this one again. This is personal preference, so don't let my review deter you if you don't mind a slightly acidic brew.
Took a chance on buying coffee from Cuvée since I never heard of them. I ordered the West Pole and it was delicious. Strong but smooth. Very tasty. Makes me look forward to my mornings.
