Named for the album by Rob Mazurek, and just like Rob’s unique and experimental music, this coffee stands out as an extra-special exploration of cosmic coffee wonderland!

The Kanzu washing station in Rwanda stands out as a shining example of excellent coffee processing. Smallholder farmers from around the Nyamasheke region deliver their fresh coffee cherries to Kanzu to be processed. Since 2012, Kanzu has been managed by the acclaimed coffee company Dorman’s, famed for their work in coffee processing in Kenya. The improvements implemented by Dorman’s at Kanzu - better quality control practices and new processing equipment - help the work of the local farmers shine through in the cup.

“Dimensional Stardust” is named after the album by our friend Rob Mazurek, and just like Rob’s unique and experimental music, this coffee stands out as an extra-special exploration of cosmic coffee wonderland. It leaps out of the cup with vibrant citrus-laced acidity, followed by perfectly ripe red plum, pomegranate and a dazzling array of purple florals. The finish is clean and smooth, with subtle notes of honey and cream. The perfect coffee for those morning mental explorations we hold so dear, brew yourself a cup, take a few sips, and let your mind wander into Dimensional Stardust!

And now a little bit about Rob and his career-defining album. The first single starts with a question: "Who Am I?" A distorted radio-style transmission of Exploding Star Orchestra vocalist Damon Locks (aka the leader of Chicago's Black Monument Ensemble) as the song drops in on a Morton Feldman-esque sci-fi soundscape. The sparse playing by guitarist Jeff Parker, vibraphonist Joel Ross, and flutist Nicole Mitchell sets the stage, just before then the full rhythm section bursts in on a hypnotic Tropicalian groove – befitting of the track title with its rotary undulations. From there, the album takes flight into new realms that push boundaries and create space for free form improvisation that we simply adore. The title track drops in at number 7, and finishes strong with three additional tracks that continue to set the tone and expand on the previous track. A beautiful thread and narrative of improvisational music that we for one can’t get enough of.

MORE COFFEES FROM THIS ROASTER

Passion House is a small batch coffee roaster and café. At Passion House, we strive to create balanced and complex coffees with our meticulous method of sourcing beans from farms around the world and roasting them by hand on a vintage 1957 German Probat cast-iron roaster.

Our goal is to produce nuanced, complex, and clean coffee while cultivating relationships with the farms. These relationships are rooted in understanding, knowledge, skill, service and mutual respect. We shoot for the stars when curating our menu, searching for the best coffees available at any given time, setting the expectations extremely high. We specialize in strong relationships with the farms, traveling around the world to find the right beans from the right farms to get the right coffee.

How did the Passion Start?

Passion House is a small-batch specialty coffee roaster who began roasting in 2011 in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood. Started by lifelong coffee professional Joshua Millman, our coffee is a marriage of passion and dedication.

Our philosophy is simple; find coffee farmers, coffee importers and coffee enthusiasts that share the same passion for the art of coffee; and collectively create quality coffees. Over the years, we have developed a deep passion and enormous amount of respect for the art of coffee. The amount of care, attention, and hard work that goes into producing quality coffee; getting it from the ground to the cup; is something we are very passionate about and take serious. Michael Kearby [Kurtis] is our sourcer and roaster. In addition to overseeing the whole roasting works, he invests a lot of time building relationships with farms and importers all over the world.

About our Coffee [or coPHee]

We source coffee from all over the world and each coffee has its own unique story to tell. Therefore it is important that each coffee has it’s own unique roast profile which truly expresses the inherent quality. Finding unique coffee takes our search all over the map to bring you a quality cup from truly special people. We have developed relationships with farmers and importers that dedicate their time to the intense care needed to grow, process and source unique coffee with carefully developed flavor profiles. We make it easy for you to enjoy some of the world’s greatest and rarest coffees brewed up in our cafe or in the privacy of your own home.

We look forward to being a part of your coffee journey in discovering your favorite region, roast level, brew method, etc. We have a variety of amazing coffees and, of course, suggest you try them all. To make it easier to navigate our coffee menu, our coffees are in three different genres.

AMBIENT GENRE: blends with a full robust flavor. We take our blending seriously, combining coffees with flavor profiles that complement each other.

MAINSTREAM GENRE: single-origin coffee. We honor the origin and the producers’ hard work by roasting the coffee to get the best from each.

EXPERIMENTAL GENRE: micro lot Single-Origin coffee. Our Experimental Genre are coffees from small lots of experimental quality beans that may have been developed, processed, or grown in a unique way. These are often hard to acquire, so are available in limited volume. [Get them while you can!]
