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
In this blend we combine beans from the major coffee-growing regions of Africa, South America and Asia. Rise ‘n’ shine to a bright and lively coffee with hints of blueberry, dark chocolate and spice.
School House Blend
Different schools, same delicious blend! No matter which school is pictured on the bag, you’ll find a delicious geography lesson in your cup. The whole beans in our Schoolhouse Blend hail from the world’s three main coffee-growing regions – Central America, South Pacific and Ethiopia – to create a bright, balanced brew with delicate floral notes and a smooth, chocolaty finish.
Whether the bag you choose pictures Anderson, Kennedy or Old St. Francis School, the coffee inside is the same.
Black Rabbit French Roast
Our darkest roast, Black Rabbit is pulled from the roaster just in time for the beans to fully caramelize and impart a smoky, sweet flavor. With its notes of chocolate and caramel, this blend is dedicated to the legendary Edgefield rabbit.
Named for our annual UFO Festival at Hotel Oregon, this complex blend of Central American and Kenyan beans exhibits notes of stone fruit, citrus and chocolate, finishing clean and bright, like the Milky Way itself.
Hot water-processed, chemical-free decaffeination results in full flavor with a smooth finish.
McMenamins’ decaffeinated coffee blend is processed in Veracruz, Mexico, where it is immersed in the clean glacial waters of Citlatepetl, the country's highest mountain. This method removes the caffeine and some flavor solids, but the “charged” water is filtered and redirected back into the beans. After brewing, the result is a full-flavored yet decidedly less buzzy cup of joe.
St. Patrick's Day Blend
This seasonal blend of arabica beans from Uganda, Colombia and Ethiopia boasts full body and full flavor. Ugandan beans contribute richness and toasted nut notes, Colombian beans are balanced by deep chocolate notes with a bit of citrus, while the Ethiopian beans add an aromatic floral note and complexity. Excellent black or with cream – or, even better, in an Irish coffee. Only available in March.

EL SALVADOR BOURBON LAS ISABELLAS
Country of origin: El Salvador
Las Isabellas farm is located in the southwestern corner of the country and sits at an altitude of 5,200 ft. The high elevation and the natural canopy of the surrounding forest contribute to the superior quality of the coffee. Diurnal temperatures at high altitudes produce wide variations of sugar that translate to greater flavor. The flavor profile: fragrant with a full body and bold chocolate. The finish is nutty with chocolate notes and hints of orange. McMenamins bought this estate coffee directly from the farm. This purchase continues our commitment to quality as well as fair trade practices. Las Isabellas is offered as a stand-alone origin, and is included in our House and Morning blends.
Country of Origin: Ethiopia
Our Ethiopian natural is a dry-processed coffee. Coffee cherries are harvested and laid out on patios to dry with the fruit left on the seed. The result is a coffee rich in fruit and complexity. Most coffees grown in the province of Sidamo are known for their bright acidity and citrus-like quality. Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee, and the agricultural methods practiced in producing coffee from this region have been employed for several centuries. In order to draw out the fruit and brightness, we roast this at a city* roast. Ethiopian coffees make up one third of our Morning blend, and are offered throughout the company as stand-alone single origins.
ROYAL SELECT WATER PROCESSED DECAF (COLOMBIA)
We pride ourselves at McMenamins for maintaining high standards when it comes to decaf coffee. The process of decaffeination can be harsh and sometimes toxic. Most cheap decaf coffees are chemically altered with the use of ethyl acetate. McMenamins Coffee Roasters always purchases water-processed decaf, which is full-bodied and flavorful. In short, water-processed decaf coffee is soaked in tanks, and the caffeine is gradually extracted through the use of high-temperature water. Coffee flavor solids and caffeine pass through a carbon filter. The caffeine is then separated from the solids, and discarded. Roast: Full city plus
We source beans from family-owned farms and family farm co-ops whenever possible, and we purchase seasonally in order to offer fresh-crop beans at their peak of flavor, showcasing their region of origin. Some of these coffees are very limited. We roast them fresh, and they’re only around until our supply runs out. Get them while you can!
KENYA: Kenyan coffees are grown at high altitudes – up to 2,300 meters – giving them the complex flavors that they are known for. The coffee is rich and aromatic, balanced by stone fruit and citrus notes and a heavy bodied finish. McMenamins Kenyan coffee is grown by small farms.
COLOMBIA: Colombia is one of the most well known coffee growing regions in the world. Colombia has two mountain ranges that provide a wide array of coffee profiles and also allows two harvest seasons a year. This coffee is rich and balanced with pleasant citrus and chocolate notes.
