If our baristas have brewed you an espresso-based drink at any of our coffee shops, you’ll be familiar with this special offering since it’s our signature house blend! Our Silver Oak blend features a combination of washed and unwashed coffees to create a balanced profile that works well in espresso based drinks as well as in manual brews such as the AeroPress, Pour Over or in cold brews. This versatile medium roast is named after the Silver Oak trees commonly found across coffee plantations in Southern India.

At a time like this when it is hard for you to come to our cafes, this offering is a small way of bringing our cafe experience to you.

Tasting Notes: Hazelnut, Honey + Grapes
