The Best Man Is The Deadman

The Best Man Is The Deadman

“I was on summer vacation with my fiancé and my best girlfriend in Payson, a mountain town on the Mogollon Rim in Arizona. We stopped by a little coffee shop for a pick me up before more hiking and fishing adventures, and I saw all of the amazing artwork for the Raven's Brew Coffee. There was a map on the wall of where each coffee originated, and I of course was drawn to the red line that led to a picture of a skeleton. I immediately knew I had to try it (I have a penchant for the darker things in life.) The employees were kind enough to brew us up some single cups of a few coffees, and I tried the Resurrection Blend first. It was great, but then came the Deadman came walking. I have never in my life been able to stand straight black coffee, I have always found it way too bitter and unpleasant unless I put ridiculous amounts of half and half in. I drink a cup of Deadman's Reach black every morning now. It. Is. Wonderful!!! Thank you so much for making such a splendidly dark brew, with artwork to match! It makes my strange heart happy.”
