There are a few things that raise us early in the morning: good company, the perfect wave, and the smell of freshly roasted coffee. We roast weekly on a Probat P12 to ensure consistent roasts with uniform bean patterns to guarantee each cup carries you through the day. Orders ship Wednesday through Friday.
Like a standing wave, no two cups of coffee are ever truly the same. That said, these Roasts are especially curated for all coffee drinkers, from novice to expert.
A staple mix of Central and South American coffees to reach an elevated, lighter brew that is perfect for a morning cup or all-day gusto. Bright and crisp acidity with caffeinated Ramcat energy. #GimmeThatRamcat | The Ramacat is the first Class II rapid of the mighty Middle Youghiogheny. Usually run down the middle or right side at lower water to avoid rocks. At high water, a wicked hydraulic forms on the river left at the bottom.
A continental combination of two South American coffee producing powerhouses. This dynamically designed espresso blend is bold and bright. Light enough to be sweet and yet dark enough for a thick crema for that perfect double shot! #MakeMineADoubleHydraulic | Double Hydraulics is a Class III+ rapid famous for surfing on the Lower Youghiogheny. As the name implies, the first hole is a pour over ledge and the second hole is playable at the right water levels. The standard line is to catch the first eddy in river center and a second eddy further down and to the right.
Get lost with this hard-hitting, robust mix of coffee bean varietals that can handle a darker roast and yet yield less acidity. Full-bodied and classic flavors produced from these origins’ rich and diverse soils. You have found the best diner drip coffee for the many paths ahead. #StayLostAndGetFound | A true Class V rapid on the Upper Youghiogheny. Flow through a couple of flat spinning holes and small pools into Lost & Found rapid. The falls are hole-filled and this rapid includes the notorious undercut rock slab fondly known as Tombstone Rock. Fortunately, the line to avoid this death trap is pretty easy: go between the rocks and make sure you finish right of the big center rock.
