    Our Banner Dark Blend is meant to appeal to those who enjoy a deeper, richer flavor. Dark chocolate and brown sugar meet rich undertones of vanilla and maple, with a heavier body and lower acidity in the cup.

      My go to coffee

      Before banner dark I brewed a different brand every bag. I always just liked the variety and change. Not anymore! I now have a pile of other coffee in my basement because banner dark is the only thing I brew. It’s incredibly balanced. Flavorful and smooth. None of the bright nutty flavors that give you the harsh aftertaste when you wake up. Lots of graham cracker and toffee. To me it has a light brown sugar note as well hitting a little sweet but then smoothing out into a graham cracker aftertaste. Very versatile in brew methods. Its the only one that I can use as drip, pour over, or even cold brew. If you like dark coffee this is the goat!

      Banner Dark Why It’s So Popular!

      Banner Dark’s popularity (especially in our home) makes this Central and South American sourced coffee one of the best deep, low-acidic, full-bodied morning coffees we’ve ever tried. We rotate Banner Dark with another favorite - Owl’s Howl!

    FAQ

    How many cups of coffee are in a bag?

    Using the recipe that we use in-store, each 12oz bag makes 17 cups of coffee - just the right amount for one person to use in two weeks or for a pair of coffee drinkers to enjoy in a week. 

    Each 2LB bag makes 45 cups of coffee - just the right amount for one person to use in 3 weeks or for two people to enjoy in a week and a half


    Each 5LB bag makes 113 cups of coffee - just the right amount for one person to use in 8 weeks or for two people to enjoy in a month

    How does the Banner Dark compare with your Owl’s Howl Espresso blend? Is it stronger? I have a Moccamaster and I’m looking for a coffee with low acidity.

    Our Owl's Howl is a bright and fruity espresso, with balanced acidity. Our Banner Dark has a lot of body, with almost no acidity. They're equal in "strength", i.e. have the same amount of caffeine, but if you're looking for an offering with low acidity, Banner Dark is your best option.

    How long does Sightglass coffee stay fresh?

    Sightglass coffee tastes best up to six weeks after the roast date printed on the back of the sealed bag. Once opened, we recommend you use the coffee within two weeks for optimal freshness. Coffee will taste best when ground immediately before brewing.

    Where should I store my coffee? In the freezer? On the counter?

    Grind only the amount of coffee you plan to brew and store the remainder in an airtight container, away from direct sunlight, heat, and sources of humidity. Avoid putting your coffee in the refrigerator or freezer.
