A signature dark roast blend since 2003, our Death’s Door coffee blends the best beans from Costa Rica and Sumatra to form one of our smoothest dark roasts you will ever drink.
This dark roast blend is named after, Porte des Morts, a narrow strait located between the tip of Door County and Washington Island, that was known to be very dangerous passage for sailors many years ago, earning the name Death’s Door.
Today, the passage is crossed regularly as people take the ferries from the mainland to the islands. It’s a truly beautiful area! But, if you could just imagine a time before modern ships and technology on a very cold early winter night before the ice moved in – the wind howling – the snow blowing – and someone trying to sail through those very rough waters.
Our Death’s Door Dark Roast coffee harkens you back to the time when you needed a strong, full bodied coffee to get you through the night and through the straight. When you sip this coffee – we always ask that you raise your mug occasionally as a salute to the sailors that passed through Death’s Door.
