    Roaster’s Notes
    This coffee has juicy notes of strawberry that cool into crisp, brown sugar sweetness. Almost mimics a classic rooibos tea. Our desire is to tap into the notion Black History doesn’t begin with Slavery (1619), but it does start in Africa. Temi Coker’s visual aesthetic lends itself to an Afro-futuristic vision of blackness. This coffee collaboration presents an opportunity to explore the intersection of black history and a black future.
