Anchors up! It’ll be a day smooth sailing with this top-rated dark blend, a smoky cup of dark chocolate, spice, and burnt caramel. Ship Canal Blend, from Conduit Coffee Company, is a combination of South American and Sumatran beans treated to a lovely, full-city roast, a nutty, earthy depth along with a rich, creamy body. There’s a touch of sharp, toasty flavor in this cup, but it feels more like the toasted top of a creme brulee: an ideal balance of bold, sweet, and rich with a divine, almost pillowy finish of dark chocolate caramel that lingers well beyond the last sip.
Conduit Coffee Company roasts on the shores of Lake Union, and their flagship dark roast is, like its namesake, perfectly and authentically Seattle. Carved out by a glacier roughly 12,000 years ago, Seattle’s freshwater Lake Union connects to Puget Sound, and the Pacific Ocean, through a series of man-made canals, including the Ship Canal. The history of Seattle’s waterways is also a history of Seattle coffee—some of our oldest coffee institutions have their roots in the old shipping districts, where our large population of Scandinavian-born sailors, fisherman, and dockworkers sought mug after mug of extra-bold, extra-dark coffee to keep them going.
This well-loved Seattle dark pays homage to old Seattle, but with a modern twist: eco-conscious Conduit Coffee delivers locally by bike! Your coffee’s carbon footprint has never looked (or tasted) so good. Reserve a bag of Ship Canal, our top-rated classic dark of chocolate and smoky caramel—and may your day be as smooth as the passage of boats along the canal, and your mug as rich and bottomless as the waters below.
