Not for the faint of heart, this coffee is bold and intense. If you’re just dipping your toes into the dark coffee bean world, this may not be the bean for you. However, if you’re not afraid of a little caffiene jolt, Death Wish has a great flavor with “hammering dark roast, blended for body, balance and a dazzling cocoa finish”.

A subtler take on a French roast, Peace Coffee is the perfect option for someone who wants a slow build on flavor. Their tasting notes include “smoky sweet chocolate and the subtle sweetness of black cherry and vanilla”. Yum!

Stumptown is a well known blend, for good reason! Our personal favorite (which happens to be one of their most popular blends) is the the Hair Bender. Flavors include citrus and dark chocolate. Stumptown describes this blend as: “Our most popular blend has clarity & complexity; Indonesia’s rich textures are balanced by the classic flavors of Latin America & Africa”.
Stumptown is also a B-corp certified company and provides fair trade and organic coffee.
Last but certainly not least – Jo coffee has to be on our list of top 5 ethical coffee brands!
