Onyx’s foundational blend combines sweet chocolate and juicy citrus notes for an approachable and versatile cup.
Southern Weather was Onyx’s first ever blend and it’s been a foundational offering ever since: comforting, approachable, and versatile with or without milk. The blend’s composition changes with the seasons to hit Onyx’s flavor profile, presently combining sweet caramelized notes from a washed Colombian coffee and bright citrus notes from Ethiopia Chelbesa Washed. We tasted milk chocolate, prune, sugar, and green grape, with a juicy green grape acidity and a punchy body.

We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn’t want to do it.
