As the long days of summer lead into fall, we’re saying goodbye to Summer Solstice Blend. Our richest and deepest seasonal brew, Summer Solstice is an annual treat from Fundamental Coffee, Seattle’s dark-roast artists. They’ve crafted this cup from directly-sourced Central American and African beans—unusual for a dark coffee—and the results are magical: an aroma of florals and almond roca opens this smooth cup, along with a subtle hint of tropical fruit. The finish is toasty and rich, and lingers in your mouth like an after-dinner coffee candy.
Fundamental Coffee is Seattle’s foremost dark coffee mixologist. Founder and roaster Scott (a self-described curmudgeon coffee nerd) spent decades of his life tasting, sourcing, roasting, and blending for some of the biggest names in coffee before going out on his own. His passion is dark coffee: if it’s not rich and bold, it’s not his. Summer Solstice is a seasonal staple, one we look forward to all year… while it lasts!
With notes of toasted almonds, dark chocolate, and a hint of tropical brightness, this dark and delicious blend is like the last rays of summer sunshine fading into a velvety August night. Capture the final days of the Summer Solstice and reserve a bag from the last batch. There are still a few days of summer left to enjoy! Drink them in.
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This was pretty decent for a dark roast. Mildly bitter dark cocoa, not so much of the other flavors for me. Not one I would particularly go out and purchase again, but I always love being able to try new coffees.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Really excellent roast. From the moment the scent hits your nose to the first sip to the last drop, it is really delicious. Will absolutely purchase again.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Fairly good. Pretty sweet for a dark roast. I liked the slightly bitter dark chocolate notes and little hints of fruit at the end. Brewed french press.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Great dark roast coffee. Fairly smooth with full flavor. nutty with notes of chocolate. We would order this coffee again.|
