Dandy Lion Coffee

Mexico - Black & Tan

Sale price Price $15.25 Regular price Unit price  per 


For the Guinness fans out there, you know a Black & Tan is a classic Irish pub drink. It's when a dark beer is poured over a lighter one and results is a unqiue balance of flavors and a really cool effect! We decided to create that same combination of flavors in a limited time roast.

How did we do it? We started by roasting our single origin Mexican bean two different ways by combining a rich, full-bodied dark roast with a smooth and sweet light roast in a blend that creates an amazing balance of flavor that both light and dark roast enthusiasts will be sure to love!

So when it's too early in the day to enjoy a craft bear and it's delicious complex flavors, treat yourself to this unique limited time roast that we know you will enjoy...until it's an appropriate time of day to enjoy the real thing :)

The Cause

The flavor isn’t the only thing that makes this offering so special! This bag is not only organic and fair trade, it also supports women coffee growers in Mexico with equal opportunities to work, buy land, and own farms. The CESMACH co-op facilitates a program for its 224 women producers; premiums are paid for these coffees in order to financially support the often undervalued work of women, many of whom are single parents running their farms and families. Such a worth while cause to support with each morning brew!
