Great Old One

Long Dark Roast - 12oz


You enjoy something heavy, bold, and rich. Bright coffee is for paladins. We take a blend of Guatemalan and Tanzanian coffee with notes of dark chocolate and almonds far into the roast process, resulting in delicious cooked sugar flavors in the cup (think caramel and toffee). It makes for a bittersweet dark roast that doesn't taste burnt or ashy.

Lore from the cosmic unknown: From the depths, mystery lurks. The expanse of darkness cannot be known, but it can be explored. Whispers and dreams creep into the waking world, as followers of the the Old Ones seek to further the agenda to awaken the esoteric beast and bring about the end of the ages. At least, that's how the retired sailor that lives around the corner tells the story to travelers looking for wealth and glory.

Order this coffee if...

You need to bring some coffee to the annual Eldritch cultist pot-luck, or you just like a bittersweet brew in the morning.

Pairs well with...

an intense game of Death May Die, Mansions of Madness, or, of course, Call of Cthulu.

Origin: Tanzania + Guatemala blend

A combination that brings great body, sweetness, and flavor.  The best of two great coffee-growing regions.

Roast: Dark

It's easy to over-roast coffee.  Great Old One is a dark roast with a mindful touch.

Processing: Washed

A washed coffee implies a classic-tasting profile with great clarity of flavors.

Long Dark Blend

For the dungeon divers, the spooky storytellers, the Cthulhu curious.

Great dark roast

Can't go wrong choosing this one if you like a bolder roast. Made a delicious cold brew for this lover of warlock characters!

Marco Luker
Very smooth

This is one of the best dark roasts I've ever had. The taste is closer to a medium roast because it doesn't have the same bitterness or sometimes burnt taste that a lot of dark roasts (especially Starbucks) have. It makes a really good iced coffee too.

Michael Andrade
Best Dark Roast

Great flavor, isn't burnt or acidic tasting like a lot of dark roast. Best choice on the site if you like iced coffee or mix your hot coffee with a lot of milk/cream.

‘Twas tasty

I got this as a gift for my brother. He loves dark roasts and table top games so it was perfect. He made some this morning and thought it was very tasty!
