Spokesman Coffee was developed by service industry professionals that desired more than the usual coffee / café experience. Our unique café was designed to be the ultimate platform for our small-batch roasted coffee to shine. We look to connect with wholesale accounts that take care in conveying the passion behind the coffee that we source and roast. As our reach grows, our aim remains the same. We work to provide an outstanding product that speaks for itself with an eye for being friendly, educated and approachable throughout.
Black Mass Vol. III
1800 MASL / Washed & Sundried / Caturra, Bourbon, Typica, & Catuai

Hailing from Todos Santos in Huehuetenango this coffee is ripe for a little extra roast. Black Mass Vol. III opens with a smooth acidity, a touch of fruit, and a massive sweetness. Once the cup begins to cool, its true color comes forward to reveal a kiss of the roaster. Hyper limited and ready for the fall. Drink it in the dark.
