Great Old One


Like the darkness of the cosmos.

12oz bag
You enjoy something heavy, bold, and rich. Bright coffee is for paladins. We take a blend of Latin 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). The combination makes for a bittersweet dark roast that doesn't taste burnt or ashy.

Origin: Tanzania + Guatemala blend

A combination that brings both 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 crawlers, the spooky storytellers, the Cthulhu curious.

Great dark roast for people who don't like dark roasts!

I'm not normally a dark roast fan, but being a big HPL fan I had to give Great Old One a shot and was pleasantly surprised! It's definitely strong and dark, but it's balanced and smooth and doesn't have the "smokiness" that I normally find off-putting from dark roast coffees. More dark roasts should be like this!

Great Old One is great!

This has quickly become my favorite coffee for cold brew. Strong yet not overly bitter or acidic, I really look forward to my cup of coffee every morning now. The packaging is fun and the free stickers are a bonus for a cat loving nerd like myself.

Great Old One is actually great

I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I have been enjoying Great Old One. I am not normally the biggest fan of darker roasts, but this has swiftly become one of my favorites. Smooth and lacking the acrid bitterness you often get with dark roasts. I got the french press ground version for use with my keurig and it has worked perfectly.

There's Magic in them Beans

I'm one of those "I'll take my creamer with coffee" kinds of coffee drinkers. The taste of black coffee completely puts me off, especially with dark roasts.

That was until I had Great Old One. I have no idea how, but I'm addicted to drinking this black. Great Old One just oozes with flavor, and gives me an almost instant 2-hour boost of energy. I keep a bag at home and up at work to get me through my days as a middle school music teacher. This is absolutely my new go-to, and you all earned yourselves a weekly subscriber.

Espresso Shot

I used to work at Starbucks and have been using old but unopened beans for my espresso machine. When I calibrated my machine with the Starbucks beans, I tasted the shots not expecting much of a difference between grind size; all shots taste bitter to me since I’m a latte with flavored syrup kind of coffee drinker.
I made espresso shots with your Great Old One beans, slipped the shot for fun expecting for me to not really be able to taste the quality- and guys…this espresso shot came for my heart! I was stunned by the shot’s audacity in being sO FREAKIN’ DELICIOUS ALL ON ITS OWN. Anyway, so the Great Old One beans absolutely have some magic in them. There’s no other explanation in my mind. Excited to try making cold brew out of it next.
