The Story of Slambovian Coffee: 

“Slambovian Coffee* is a magical blend made up of two different beans from the Americas. One is spicy while the other has a rich deep flavor and heavy body.  The beans are roasted 3 ways giving rise to a coffee with 6 different profiles.  This gives our roaster fits, since during a 13 minute roast the batch is adjusted for temperature twice and some of the roasting coffee is let out to be partially cooled at 11 minutes.  The result is a sweet, smoky and spicy roast that has superb body and aroma.  There is a slight tingle at the first sip and a lingering full flavor taste.  This coffee gets you up and wont let you down but without the afterburn of some the dark roasts jitters.  A strong coffee with a combination of medium dark and very dark roasts. This coffee took eight months of trials to perfect and is the coffee that fuels the Circus.” – Marcus Goeller, Master Coffee Taster & Roaster (*Available at the Slambovian Mercantile by the pound or on a subscription basis. Free mug with subscription! )
So, where did coffee come from and how did it become so popular? According to legend, a sixth-century Ethiopian goatherd named Kaldi discovered his goats frolicking from one coffee shrub to another. He realized the coffee berries had a stimulating effect, and he began to experiment with the seeds. A century later, brewed coffee emerged in Arabia and the popularity of coffee grew at an exponential rate. A lucky day in history!
