Steadfast Black Lacquer Blend
Black Lacquer is an exceptional blend of some of the finest Brazilian Arabica beans we could get our hands-on. To transform these beans into Black Lacquer, our roasters balance time and temperature on a razor’s edge. Unlike many mainstream dark coffees, which use roasting to hide flavor imperfections in smoke, our roasters have managed to deliver a sweet, caramelized dark roast that remains unique and true to its roots… Like Steadfast and Relax.
The Steadfast Black Lacquer Shop Mug
We thought the Black Lacquer Blend, the first roast in our "Rust Belt Roasts" tribute series, deserved its own bitchin' black vessel. Dark and shiny on top, copper down below... Wherever the day leads, keep your this travel coffee mug filled up with Black Lacquer Blend.
There is a reason why Malabar Farm in Richland County, Ohio is named after a place 8,000-miles away on the west coast of India. When author Louis Bromfield was driving around the hills of north central Ohio in 1938 looking for a suitable site for his new home and experimental farm, he had just received a fat check from 20th Century-Fox for the rights to turn his latest novel into a movie. The novel, The Rains Came, was set on the Malabar coast of India and became a best-seller; the movie was the most expensive film ever produced, and it turned into the biggest blockbuster the studio had ever seen. The success allowed Bromfield to realize his dream of becoming a gentleman farmer.
Billy Baba O'R: THE Relax House Blend
Named in tribute to our head roaster (Billy), the legendary Monk said to have first smuggled coffee beans out of Africa (Baba), AND one of the greatest rock songs of all time (O'R). Three unique coffees and two distinct roasts create a full-bodied, sharp cup with spicy undertones and smoky, dark-roasted complexity. A favorite among Relax longtime customers, for which there is no substitute.
Our Cerrado Espresso blend is a rich, full-bodied espresso with moderate-to-low acidity. Dry processed for an amazing complexity of flavors, this blend produces a sweet, nutty espresso with the thickest and heaviest crema you’ve ever seen!
The Relax Hoodie
Be honest, you want to be loved. It's okay to admit it, we all do. Well, except for Morrissey, pretty sure he's going for universal abhorrence. It's also okay to admit that you want this hoodie. In fact, buying this hoodie could be considered an act of self-love. And if you buy one for yourself AND another human, that puts you in the running to be the Pontifice of Love.
