What was once an accident is now one of our most popular roasts. Here’s the legend:
Late one night, Nate went to roast some Blue & White Blend, but used the wrong beans. He was sad as it was close to 2:00 a.m. and he still needed the Blue & White. He bagged the mistaken beans and put them in the box for a client in case any of their employees would try it. The next week, they contacted him and said, “Nate! What was that mystery coffee you brought us? It was so good. Everyone really loves it!” Because Nate knew which beans he had used, he was able to recreate his late-night roast. He named it “After Midnight” to celebrate when it was first roasted. The End.
After Midnight is also used in Nate’s Coffee’s Midnight Gold Cold Brew. Its tasting notes in cold form are vastly different, with very little of the “roastiness” coming through. Instead it is sweet with a milk chocolate note. Add a little cream and it’s a dessert by itself! Order one to go here or find it at Southland Bagel and Crank & Boom Ice Cream Lounge.
