STORYarticle-shape

This naturally occurring hybrid variety, Pacamara, is famously cultivated in the Northern Chalatenango mountains and is almost perfect. Grown by our good friend Jorge Rivera, whom we’ve been working with for years, this coffee tastes of complex date sweetness and tangy black currants. Performs well in a auto drip or as a bright citrus forward espresso.

Season after season, the coffees we purchase from Jorge Raul Rivera tend to be some of our top lots of the year. Raul has a razor-sharp attention to detail, which is what it takes to produce award-winning coffees so consistently. That focus extends far beyond just processing and drying. Each season, we cup offerings from Santa Rosa that are separated down ‘day lots.’ We cup through these individual pickings to build a profile that we believe best reflects the terroir and processing of Santa Rosa. This season we cupped these selections at Raul’s lab in San Salvador, with stunning views of the city. Shortly after we made our selections, Raul went on to take second place in the Cup of Excellence. Each season has its unique challenges, and it has been this way since we began to work with Jorge Raul Rivera. The one thing that has been consistent since we first met him at a Roasters Guild retreat nearly six years ago is Jorge’s willingness to work extremely hard with the highest level of hospitality, which is evident in the quality of his coffee and his relationships. Since our first visit to Santa Rosa where he showed us around his favorite spots in El Salvador, to the season when we could only communicate via WhatsApp, his attention to detail and penchant for quality is what shines the brightest.

MORE COFFEES FROM THIS ROASTER

It was some years ago that we Jon and Andrea, began to dream of serving a sweet, black cup of coffee to our customers in Arkansas. This coffee, the mythical bridge between the blended chocolate drink and a strong black cup, needed to combine the delicate flavors only present when coffee is grown and processed with love and care, roasted to enhance but not mask flavor, and brewed to highlight those flavors. This is how Onyx Coffee Lab was born in October of 2012.

Our mission is pretty simple: to source and serve the best coffees in the world. Perhaps this is really ambitious, but we believe it’s pretty simple. Customers want to taste differences in coffee, not only on the black coffee level, but also when espresso and milk are poured together, and on another level, when coffee is treated as a culinary item and paired with beverages and food items that you wouldn’t expect.

The best business practice that Onyx Coffee Lab has and strives to continue is to be an owner-driven business. The difference between an owner run café, restaurant, roaster, retail shop, and so on is almost always evident in customer service, quality of product and atmosphere. It’s no easy task to translate passion for award winning coffee into a well-run business. We think it’s a carefully constructed balance of demand for excellence, passion, heart, and recognizing when we need someone to step into a leadership role. Every cup of freshly roasted coffee from Onyx has been carefully curated by us- from the very beginning with the farmer, through the roastery and to our customers. Without all of those hands, we are nothing, and we are there over each step in the process, demanding, sipping, loving, encouraging, instructing. We are Onyx Coffee Lab.
