What the people want, the people get. And what the people want is a dark roast so smooth and flavourful that it will be remembered in both time and space for all of eternity.
Named after a man who with his amazing mind travelled to the farthest corners of space, from his power wheelchair, comes a dark roast with a flavour that can only be described as out of this world.
We'll admit it, we were sceptical. We like our roasts on the lighter side, but this dark roast has us seeing the limitless possibilities of the universe.
Good as a shot of espresso too, especially if using the Milky Way.
Only an infinite number will be made, so act faster than the speed of light to buy yours now.

- FRENCH PRESS/POUR OVER: for making this dark roast, we suggest using water that has cooled a bit form boil, as too hot water with a dark roast can create a harsh, over-extracted taste.
- If you don't have a kettle that can set the temperature, simply bring your kettle to a full boil, then let it rest for 30-60 seconds before starting your bloom (the first pour where you wet the grinds to let the gas out).
- For pour over, you can also grind a touch coarser than usual to avoid over extraction.
- ESPRESSO: This pulls a rich espresso shot that goes great with milk based drinks!
