Roadhouse Joe

Roadhouse Joe

In preparation for the opening of Zingerman’s Roadhouse in 2003, months of collaboration and tasting resulted in the creation of this signature coffee blend. It’s been a hit ever since. Designed to complement food, it emphasizes body and balance over sharpness and acidity. It finishes with a very slight nuttiness and is by far our most popular blend.

Technically, it’s a mix of Papua New Guinea, Costa Rican, Indian, and Brazilian Peaberry, each added for their contribution in body, balance and nuttiness. Less technically—but more importantly—it’s a sensible, smooth, crowd-pleasing coffee that’s guaranteed to satisfy anyone.

  • Smooth as silk, nutty, and sweet.
  • Amazing in a Chemex, which highlights the sweetness and complexity. The Aeropress gives is a wonderful thicker body with a nice dried fruit finish. In the press pot, we noted flavors of rye, wood and spice.
