The Raven's Brew Coffee® Story
Long ago, far away, in a seascape of countless islands shrouded in mist and robed in dense forests, Raven's Brew Coffee® came into being. The legendary Alexander Archipelago, also known as Southeast Alaska, is home to the small and isolated town of Ketchikan, the rainiest inhabited place in North America. If there was anything to match the quantity of rain there, it was the number of trees, fish, ravens and the unfathomable, unquenchable craving of the local human denizens for rich and strong, hot, steaming, soul-warming coffee. Nothing excited their senses more than a proper cup of coffee and that coffee was Raven's Brew®. Its perfect balance engendered social harmony. Its freshness and purity matched the intense beauty of the natural setting. Its heat was the satisfying antidote to rain-drenched conditions, and it accentuated perfectly the sunny days.
No wonder that it was Raven who brought the gift of the ultimate elixir. It had been Raven who, in eons past, brought the gift of the sun to light the sky for the first peoples of that land. Now he brought the brew that lit the soul, and it was so welcomed that it soon spread all over Alaska and throughout the continent and even across the seas...
Enough café elixir The soul may blaze a trail To the well of shining ebony Of inspiring iridescence.
With aid of onyx liquor Supplication may avail To bless your mortal litany, To make a palate luminescent.
Enough of God’s Black Ichor The heart may hoist a sail, Synapse become epiphany, Consciousness transcendent.
The very darkest of our roasts is as dark as the coffee can be roasted while preserving the integrity of the beans. The appearance is nearly black with the shine of the oil fully present and emerged on the surface of the bean. These shiny beans feature all of the browning flavors of the roasting process offering a dark cup of solace filled with rich flavors.
