Skookum Blend® Coffee
HALO WAU-WAU, MUCKAMUCK KAUPY™
Shut Up and Drink the Coffee™. Skookum means “strong/great” in the old Chinook parlance.
A blend as big, bold and natural as the Great Northwest. This is Kaupy Kahkwa Koosah
(Coffee Like Heaven)!™
We are committing 100% of the profits from our Skookum® branded products to this effort to be given as an annual donation to support Sealaska Heritage Institute’s Baby Raven Reads program.
Our goal at Raven’s Brew® is to find the perfect intersection between flavorful bean and roast level for each of our blends. Roasting coaxes a panoply of flavors and aromas from the depth of the bean while layering in toasty, warming notes. Our roasting methods ensure that our beans are never scorched—even when taken to the darkest levels of roast.
Full City Roast
Perched just before a Dark Roast is the Full City Roast.
The coffee appears dark, the oils are just starting to emerge from the beans, sugars are more developed, and the flavors from the roasting process are more fully present.
These blends bring together the flavors of the bean and the browning tastes from roasting.
A balanced cup of nutty, citrus, herbal and earthy sweetness with a medium body.

THE STORY BEHIND SKOOKUM BLEND® COFFEE
Whether it’s a war party or a barbecue, it calls for a
fresh pot of Skookum® Blend, or why bother?
This blend is as big, bold and natural as the Great Northwest. “Skookum,” from the Chinook trade jargon of the great first nations, means “Strong.” We named this unique blend in tribute to those great cultures and their heritage that has so enriched and instructed the lives of all of us.
As a company with deep roots in Ketchikan, Alaska we wish to honor and pay respect the original Peoples of this beautiful land: the Lingít (Tlingit), Xaadaas (Haida), and Ts’msyen (Tsimshian).
One way we are doing that is by providing direct financial support to the Sealaska Heritage Baby Raven Reads program. This program reflects our values which include early literacy as the foundation for personal growth, lifelong learning, and a means to pass essential knowledge and traditions from one generation to the next.
We are committing 100% of the profits from our Skookum® branded products to this effort to be given as an annual donation to support Sealaska Heritage Institute’s Baby Raven Reads program. Learn more about the award-winning Baby Raven Reads program here.
IS IT DECAF?
Skookum® Blend is one of the few coffees that we offer as a Decaf alongside its caffeinated twin.
This Decaf coffee is people-friendly and planet-friendly using a Water Process method that relies only on water and time (no solvent chemicals!), which results in a rich and delicious cup. You will be amazed that it’s Decaf!
