We coffee lovers are explorers at heart, making new expeditions across the world with every sip… but we’re also nesters, home-baristas, and sleep-late-ers. Yes, we can have it both ways! Fitzroy’s Blend, Zoka Coffee’s nod to the worldly spirit of coffee, is both a Bon Voyage and a Welcome Home. Bold and adventurous, this toasty medium blend is a strong cup, with intense notes of dark chocolate syrup and ginger-molasses cookies. A soft, smoky finish feels as cozy as curling up in front of a fireplace on a chilly night. Other coffees may start your engines, but this one will make them purr.
The classic notes of big nutty chocolate come from this blend’s Central and South American beans, and the intensity of the roast makes this coffee a true Seattle standout. Fitzroy’s Blend takes its name from Vice-Admiral Robert Fitzroy, best known for captaining the HMS Beagle on its circumnavigation around the globe from 1831-1836. This voyage would later become famous because of who Fitzroy invited to join him: Charles Darwin. The intended purpose of the expedition was for a nautical survey, but Fitzroy wanted a companion and a scholar. Charles Darwin was a 22-year-old recent graduate, recommended to Fitzroy based on his scholarship and upbeat personality. The best part of the story? Fitzroy’s famous temper on the voyage earned him the nickname “Hot Coffee”! Maybe he just needed another cup...
Fitzroy’s Blend by Zoka Coffee, is a local cafe favorite, and one of our best-selling medium blends. Like its namesake, this cup is bold, daring, and intense, with a big body of luxurious, melted chocolate and dark molasses. Reserve a bag of Fitzroy’s Blend and brew up your own journey, whether around the world, or just around the house. It’ll carry you away.
