|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.
I brewed this in my french press and it was delicious! A great cup of coffee :)
Great taste !!!! I look forward to my cup every morning!
I am obsessed with this coffee. I only brew it cold (slow over 24 hours) so I've not tried it hot, but It's got great smoothness and flavor. I get compliments all the time when I serve/share it with friends (and I serve it black) I'm addicted to coffee in general and this roast.
I have always been into the darker roasted coffee, Your West Pole to be honest is on the lighter side of dark roast but I do have to say it taste really great. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened and it was not as dark as my usual style but really had a great bold taste…good job!
This is my favorite coffee. It’s dark, yes, but not bitter. Just wonderful.
