I can’t remember where we were sitting, but from over my tiny cappuccino this giant “F” caught my eye. On closer inspection I realized it was by a brand I’d heard of before called St. Frank. In fact, I’m pretty sure this company is owned or run by someone I know personally, though honestly I’m not quite sure anymore.
The packaging is “Wow” and jumps off the shelf. I was excited to brew a batch of St. Frank out of San Francisco at home.
A few things to note about the roast as realized from the label on the front. This roast was called the “Las Nubes” from Honduras. Even more intimate information tells me that it was grown by Alexi Moreno in El Cedral, Santa Barbara Honduras. How awesome is that? It truly brings a face to the farmer that created the first thing you drink in the morning.
This roast is “YEOWZA”. A very light roast that almost hits you like a ton of bricks. Usually I’m slightly offended by flavor like this, but for some reason in St. Frank’s capacity, it was wonderful. Sure it had me bouncing off the walls making my 3 year old say “whats up with papa?” But he wasn’t complaining when I was ready to play with him all day.
This thing is great, and hopefully some day I’d like to enjoy St. Frank in it’s natural habitat. The city by the bay.
