What the people want, the people get. And what the people want is a dark roast so smooth and flavourful that it will be remembered in both time and space for all of eternity. 

Named after a man who with his amazing mind travelled to the farthest corners of space, from his power wheelchair!

This dark roast has a flavour that can only be described as out of this world. 

This coffee comes to us from the amazing people at Baho Coffee, who operate the Fuji Washing Station in Rwanda's Southern province with care and ethics in mind. They believe in paying their workers fair wages and a pension, and supporting many all women farms for single and widowed women.

Brewing Tips
  • ESPRESSO: This pulls a rich espresso shot that goes great with milk based drinks! We pull this as a traditional 1:2 shot. 
  • FRENCH PRESS/POUR OVER: for making this dark roast, we suggest using water that has cooled a bit form boil, as too hot water with a dark roast can create a harsh, over-extracted taste.
  • If you don't have a kettle that can set the temperature, simply bring your kettle to a full boil, then let it rest for a minute or so before starting your bloom (the first pour where you wet the grinds to let the gas out). 
  • For POUR OVER, you can also grind a touch coarser than usual to avoid over extraction. And use a more slightly more generous ratio, like a 1:16 or 1:17.
