Last batch alert! We’re saying goodbye to one of our top-selling dark blends, Winter Solstice. Luckily, you’ve got one last chance to stock your kitchen before it’s gone for the season. A perennial winter favorite, this bold, herbaceous blend opens with the sweet aroma of brown sugar and dark toffee. The creamy, spicy body carries notes of cracked pepper, sweet basil, and a warm woodsiness, with a finish of raw sugar with a hint of muddled mint. Like the longest night of the year, the dark flavor in this blend lasts and lasts.
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. Winter Solstice is a seasonal staple, one whose darkness is only rivaled by its namesake, the longest night of the year. This blend is a combination of bold, syrupy Sumatra, woodsy, cedary Thailand, and a toffee-like sweetness from Fundamental’s hand-picked, small lot Honduras. The result is a multi-layered blend with a rich, spicy profile that’ll keep you warm all day long.
Embrace the magic of Winter Solstice one last time! Spicy, woody, with a hint of sweet herbs and raw sugar, Fundamental’s fifth annual Winter Solstice Blend is our final toast to the long, cozy nights of midwinter. Reserve a bag from the last batch, and let this dark roast bring a little extra light to your morning.
