We wanted the perfect cup of coffee, so we roasted it. We believe that the future can be humane, sustainable and delicious - so delicious we won't wait for it to arrive. The future is businesses that have a minimal ecological footprint, that are tied constructively to their consumer and producer communities. The future is knowing what is enough and savoring a sweet little spot in a well-balanced world. We serve our customers the future today by providing magnificent, ethically-sourced coffees, medium-roasted and expertly blended for espresso and more that will blow their minds and let their thoughts drift to a future worth working for. It's not science fiction, it's Scarlet City.

Resistance is Futile.

Xenomorph Blend

All Coffee

All coffees are roasted separately, to a range of medium to medium/dark roast styles.  Please see our Roasting Philosophy page for more information.  Roast days are Tuesdays & Thursdays unless otherwise indicated.  Orders placed prior to 7am on roast days may be roasted that day, but not guaranteed (please note in your order whether you need confirmation of roast date).  Orders for pick up at the espresso bar will be ready on the Weds or Friday after roast day after 11am.

Xenomorph Blend


Xenomorph Blend



While our roast style across the board is a northern Italian style medium roast, some beans - whether single origins or blends - have deeper, richer flavors. Xenomorph is the epitome of those characteristics - our deepest blend yet. She is an elegant beast: Xenomorph will jump out of the shadows, glistening and black - rip through your chest with a shriek and leave you stunned - and impressed. Dark brown sugar up front gives way quickly to the soft fruitiness of white peach over the deeper sweetness of Peruvian super dark chocolate. Wraps up with a long finish of dark caramel.

Good for drip, pour over, French press.  Great black or with milk.
