Our Pike Street Blend

Chocolate and coffee. What a team. Both begin as tropical beans, both are roasted, and both contain caffeine. A coffee with chocolate notes is pleasing to the pallet. It’s familiar. It’s meant to be. Like the famous market that inspired the name, this blend offers a pleasant aroma and loads of flavor. We have written a Pike Street blend inspired story here, the story of Seattle’s most iconic tourist attraction and how it was born from a revolution.

Beans from the Mantiqueira de Minas

Pike Street gets its iconic flavor from a coffee sourced from the Mantiqueira de Minas region in Southeastern Brazil. It helps bring out nice bittersweet chocolates notes in the blend. At one time, the Coffee Kings of Brazil ruled all. They were big plantation owners, monarchs of estates blessed by the government to exercise a nearly complete monopoly over the global coffee market.

Coffee and politics were so entwined that an entire era of Brazilian government was referred to as the Café con Leite – or “coffee with milk”. This referred to the country’s twin exports: java and dairy.

Brazil knows coffee. They “got it” almost immediately after introduction – production ramped up quickly and now it’s integral to their economy. Good coffee still comes from Brazil: soft and nutty coffee with low acidity and a nice bittersweet chocolate taste. It’s a coffee that the locals drink with milk.
