Whether you prefer espresso, pourover, French press, or drip coffee, freshness is the foundation of a good cup. We roast on demand in micro batches, then air seal each bag as soon as the beans cool ensuring freshness.
We recommend storing fresh beans in an airtight glass jar to preserve the flavor as long as possible. For the best quality, buy whole bean and grind just before brewing using a high quality burr grinder.
There are many regions of coffee in the world, each with its own unique flavor. Central and South American coffee beans have a wonderful flavor, with chocolatey nutty tones, and moderate brightness. They blend well together.
We roast and blend beans together capturing different roast levels, to highlight the best characteristics of each type of bean. The result is a beautiful medley of color and flavor.
If you want a specific roast level, add a note in “special instructions” during checkout.
Central + South American Blend
This is our in-house espresso and our most popular offering. It’s a blend of three beans, roasted in two stages to achieve a broad spectrum of flavor. It’s is also wonderful for drip, pourover, French press, and any other brew method.
Single Origin Brazilian Cerrado
Roasted to a medium level this coffee has a mild and nutty flavor. Brazil is the largest exporter of coffee beans in the world, yet most people are less familiar with their flavor, than Colombian coffee. Brazilian beans are the base of most coffee house espresso blends.
Single Origin Mexican Chiapas
Mexican Chiapas coffee offers a mellow flavor with mild chocolatey tones, and a touch of brightness. Although not widely known, these beans have a wonderful flavor that rivals Brazilian and Colombian coffee.
Single Origin Colombian Supremo
Colombian beans are synonymous with coffee. The flavor is everything you’d expect in a good cup of Joe, without straying too far from familiar territory. We roast and blend in two stages to capture a wonderful range of flavor.
Our coffee journey started out as a hobby and turned into a passion for roasting and blending. Our friends enjoyed our coffee so much, they kept coming back for more.
We roast out of a rustic barn, so your coffee is infused with the spirit of the Old West. It will give you the speed of Wild Bill Hickok and the resolve of Wyatt Earp. Actually you’ll shake like a leaf, but it will be worth every sip.

Black River Coffee
“Like many college kids, I found myself working part time at a good independent coffee shop in Flagstaff, AZ. Here I was able to try every type of coffee and drink available to us and where I truly fell in love with the coffee bean in all its forms. Upon first drink of Black River Coffee, however, I knew I was drinking a whole different level of coffee. I had never tasted any coffee so smooth and rich as BRC's custom blends. If you enjoy coffee at any level, please do yourself a favor and try Mike's products. You will not be disappointed!" Dusty T.
"Black River Coffee has revolutionized my coffee drinking. The small batch processing with the layered roast levels makes for a depth of flavor, smoothness, and freshness I had never experienced before. It's allowed me to enjoy coffee again with no heartburn, and it's delicious iced or Hot. Fantastic product, made a fantastic guy. But watch out, it's so good, you'll want to drink it all day long."
