As a member of the Specialty Coffee Association of America, our craft roasting facility chooses high-quality beans. Specialty coffees are cupped and stored on a grading system similar to wine. Any coffee that scores less than 80 points is not considered a specialty coffee.
In addition to being a specialty coffee roaster, McMenamins Coffee Roasters is also a small-batch roaster dedicated to serving the best coffee as fresh as possible. We receive orders from our pubs on a weekly basis, roast the coffee the next day and ship it to all McMenamins locations. Roasting in small batches allows us to give our full attention to the bean and provide our patrons with the best quality product.
Our houseroasted coffees are served at all McMenamins locations and are available for purchase at our Coffee Roaster or online.
All of our beans are given special attention by roasting each variety seperately before blending. For a top-quality brew, keep your coffee in a cool, dry cupboard away from heat, moisture and sunlight.
Using barrels fresh from our own distillery or winery, we house coffee beans for three months of aging – at which time the beans absorb the barrel flavor, then we roast them, bag them, and send them to our gift shops.
We did two versions for inaugural batches, which are now for sale:
• Hogshead Whiskey Barrel-aged New Guinea: This coffee has a rich body with depth and balance. The time it spent in the whisky barrel imparted the aromas and flavors from our Hogshead Whiskey into the coffee. Its distinct aroma makes it enticing to whisky fans, as well as a great coffee experience that has whisky flavors without the alcohol.
• Tradicional Port Barrel-aged Ethiopia Limu Natural: This coffee is a traditional natural processed coffee from the Limu region of Ethiopia. We paired it with the Port Barrel to give it a wine-like aroma and flavor. Ethiopian natural coffees tend to have very pronounced fruit notes, which work well with the flavors from the time resting in the barrel.
12-ounce bag, $11.50 * Available quarterly at our larger retail locations (Edgefield, Kennedy School, Bottle Shop, Anderson School) & select smaller gift shops
This variety has traditionally combined beans from all three major coffee-growing regions (Africa, South America and Asia). Complex, bright flavor with hints of blueberry, dark chocolate and spice.
This popular blend is a classic. It is a well-balanced, medium-bodied cup, full of deep chocolate and hazelnut tones.
Black Rabbit Blend
This is the darkest roast that we offer. The coffee is pulled from the roast cycle just before it begins to seep essential oils, letting the beans fully caramelize and impart a smoky, sweet flavor without charring.
Irish Coffee Roast
McMenamins direct-trade coffee beans from El Salvador pairs great with Bushmills whiskey for the perfect Irish Coffee.
Farmer Trent Blend
Farmer Trent blend consists of two mouthwatering selections: The Kenyan used for this blend is a complex coffee with deep stone fruit notes, bright and clean in the finish. The Costa Rican provides the base and mouth feel that fills the mouth with milk chocolate and citrus notes.
Fireside Blend is our winter seasonal. It is made up from our Sumatra, Kenya, and Colombia. Each of the coffees works together to provide a rich cup perfect for the cold winter days. Full bodied, complex, with nice chocolate notes.
We only buy water-processed decaffeinated coffee because of its superior flavor and healthful qualities.
Like a dark chocolate brownie with walnuts. This exceptional coffee is more savory than sweet.
Our Ethiopia Sidamo is a Dry Processed (Natural) coffee that is allowed to dry in its ripened fruit. This adds nice fruit and berry notes. This coffee is complex, syrupy and smooth. Classic Ethiopia Natural coffee.
Medium dark roast
Our offering from Indonesia is from the island of Flores. It is processed in the traditional wet hulled method that gives it the complex notes that come through in the cup. The coffee is rich and smooth, lower in acidity, with a nice chocolate finish and notes of lemon grass.
