VERY DARK ROAST (4oz  bag)

Steeped in Naval Tradition, the "Goat Locker" as it's affectionately named, is a term for the Chief’s Mess. Established April 1, 1893, in the days of wooden sailing ships, it is a place of reverence meant only for those selected few, that achieve the title of Chief.

All sailors acknowledge and many fear the term but only a  few know how The Goat Locker came to be. By tradition, all sailors and officers (including the Commanding Officer) are required to request permission before entering The Goat Locker. The tradition stands with rare exception even today.

Wise and gritty Chiefs, the keepers of knowledge, run the Navy with an iron fist, because young American lives are on the line.

For this, we raise a toast to you, "Old Goat.” Your well earned and feared reputation still sends chills down the spines of junior officers and Sailors alike.

The darkest roast we offer, we chose our Costa Rican bean for this coffee. Why the Costa Rican? It keeps its unmistakable character and quality, even when roasted extra dark, giving this coffee a slightly smoky, toffee-like flavor. Ours is a Strictly Hard Bean European Preparation (SHB-EP), and its hardness and volcanic origins are complemented by the French roast.

Characteristics: Bold / Slightly smoky / Toffee-like
Primary origins: Costa Rica
