Looking for a highbrow start to your day? NPR ain't got nothing on this. Highbrow Blend, from Dapper & Wise, is a mix of Colombian and Guatemalan beans, roasted medium, for a morning brew that’ll get your creative juices flowing. Flavors are roasty, but buoyant, with a body of walnuts and dark chocolate that leads into a refreshing, coca-cola finish (seriously!). The fun, soda-fountain tasting notes paired with a jokey name is the type of humor that could only come from Portland, our quirky neighbors to the South.
Dapper & Wise might just be most lighthearted roasters in Portland, but their fun, unpretentious attitude about coffee is supported by a real commitment to fair trade, sustainable sourcing relationships. We love Highbrow Blend because it is, by definition, not highbrow; the term “highbrow” originates from phrenology and the debunked notion that certain skull shapes correlate with higher intelligence. These days, it’s shorthand for anything too sophisticated for the average joe. But this “cup of joe” is perfect for the average joe, or any fun-loving coffee drinker who enjoys a chocolatey, comforting cup.
Whether you’re a coffee snob, or a coffee slob, it’s hard to go wrong with Dapper’s delicious, tongue-in-cheek, Highbrow Blend. Grab your own bag today, freshly-roasted, and enjoy it however you see fit-- basic black, as cold brew, in a latte, or spilled on the sofa. After such a highbrow start to your morning, the rest of the day is up to you.
