DARK ITALIAN ROAST
Dark roast coffee lovers unite! A coffee loved for its unique flavor profile and known for packing a bold punch. This perfectly roasted Ethiopian Italian Roast with smoky flavors recalls the rustic scenes of the historic mining town of Fayette on the Garden Peninsula. The smoky flavors of this coffee are a tribute to the smoke that once rose from the blast furnaces of this old ghost town.
The flavors from our Ethiopian coffee pay homage to the nearby Fayette Historic State Park. This abandoned 19th-century industrial town was one of the Upper Peninsula’s most productive iron ore smelting operations. The iron was primarily used for Civil War efforts, but the town fizzled out shortly after the war. Now, only buildings remain to tell the story of Michigan’s mining era. Just a short drive from our shop, this town is a must-see for anyone visiting the Upper Peninsula.
