TAKING BACK SUNDAY X DARK MATTER COFFEE
COFFEE WITHOUT THE 'E'
The blend contains two different Guatemalan beans from our friends at Finca San Jeronimo. A washed Sarchimor makes up the base of this blend with a honey processed Catuai being a bright accent coffee. Together they create a nutty, sweet coffee cold with notes of baking spice.

THE BUZZ GOES ON FOREVER
BLACK ANGELS X DARK MATTER COFFEE
Dark Matter Coffee is proud to announce our collaboration with The Black Angels, and our own limited vinyl variant of their new album, Wilderness of Mirrors.
THEIR SIXTH ALBUM AND FIRST IN FIVE YEARS,
Wilderness of Mirrors is The Black Angel's most adventurous and impressive album yet. While their signature fuzzed-out and delirium-inducing brand of psychedelic rock remains intact, Wilderness of Mirrors also sees the band expanding their sonic vision beyond the furthest horizons with the addition of acoustic guitar-driven dirges, string arrangements, keyboards, and PLENTY of Mellotron. Stuffed to the gills with rich texture and defiant, heavy riffs, Wilderness of Mirrors reflects the tumult, struggle, and chaos of the last five years and weaves them into 15 tracks that force the listener to recognize their place in the new age of wilderness, gnawing at the edges of society and begging a return to primordial instinct. This is a record you can't afford to miss.
FOR THE COFFEE,
We combined washed Bourbon and Pacas from El Salvador to lay down a sweet-chocolate and nutty foundation, with Yellow Icatu rounding out the mix and adding a playful, mysterious earthy quality reminiscent of freshly-steeped black tea. Much like the record it's paired with, this blend is built on elements familiar to the DMC oeuvre, but with plenty of depth to find delights not experienced before.

"Taste The Waste"
'At just fourteen, LEO NOCENTELLI was backing up Otis Redding. Soon after, he was playing on hits for Lee Dorsey, The Supremes, and The Temptations...
For the blend, we've decided to pair two sides of a washed Guatemalan coffee (get it?), roasting one side to our typical light roast parameters and for the other side a bit heavier, caramelizing more of the sugars present in the bean. This darker component also matches the roastiness of the chicory, to further enhance that profile when brewing the two together.
As an homage to his hometown of New Orleans and their coffee traditions, we have built this blend to pair well with roasted chicory root, a first for us. During times of economic crisis and coffee shortages, chicory root was roasted and blended with coffee to stretch the supply and has since become a staple in the coffee culture in Nola.
This blend is a combination of two roast profiles on the following coffee:
Farm: San Jeronimo Miramar
Notes: Cocoa, Toasted Almonds, Dried Fig
Chicago has a long and storied history with Soul music - it's part of what makes this city's heart beat. Soulis also the communicational connection that helps everyday people with whatever ails them.
Being big fans of both the music and the event, DMC & Soul Summit teamed up to bring the Soul Summit blend and mixtape CDs. This blend is no jive friends, just straight to the point with it's black gold brew - using two of our washed coffees from El Salvador, El Condor and San Eduardo. El Condor is a tasty, straight-forward coffee, while the Eduardo washed has classic Salvadoran flavors. Notes of melon, cocoa and lemon make this a dance floor filler that will put the soul back in your day with every sip.
There are 3 mix cds, one from each Soul Summit resident: Dave Mata, Duke Grip & Sloppy White, that will be given out for FREE, while supplies last, with each bag purchased. We will also be giving out a batch of these heaters at Soul Summit on Saturday, June 21st at the Double Door. Along with the three resident DJs, Soul Suffers, from Russia, will be the featured band and admission is also FREE !! What could be better than sweatin' to some classic Soul music on a Saturday night?
