(Note: Available ONLY in 10 oz. bag). This crafted blend of washed and honey-processed coffees is bursting with aromas of toffee, apple spice, and coconut. In the cup, notes of chocolate-dipped nuts swirl and swim with flavors of spices, cherry, and nougat. Extremely sweet. Balanced. Silky.

About Narwhal Blend
The Narwhal is a sensitive creature. I mean, who wouldn’t be, with tusk like a unicorn's horn growing out of its head?! They roam the northern oceans in search of tasty fare. But hey, narwhals aren’t the only sensitive ones. We coffee lovers are, too, and we're also in constant pursuit of tasty fare, in this case, the perfect cup. Thankfully, Anchorhead has done the finding for us, and named their creation “Narwhal.”
Unicorn horns and whale tusks aside, Narwhal Blend is a dialed-in celebration of two exceptional coffees—one half high-quality Indonesian boasting flavors of earthiness and spice, and the other half specialty Guatemalan beans providing balanced acidity and deep sweetness. The search is over. The time to enjoy is upon us.

"apple spice; coconut flakes; pomegranate; roasted cashew"
Sporting a moody, maritime vibe and serving up killer coffee and their own baked goods, Anchorhead Coffee is doing coffee right in Washington state (Duvall, to be exact, with café locations in downtown Seattle and in Issaquah). Launched in 2013, Anchorhead sailed right into the big leagues, winning the 2015 “America’s Best Espresso” competition with their Ethiopian coffee, finaling for a Good Food Award with their Guatemalan roast, and collecting numerous awards at annual Golden Bean competitions.
When long-time audio engineers Mike Steiner and Jake Paulson decided to wind down traveling the world, combining their passion for coffee into a cafe and roastery just made sense. With Mike handling the roasting and sourcing aspects and Jake developing the cafe and marketing side, Anchorhead continues to expand their vision of sourcing expressive, lively coffees, then roasting them in a way that brings out the intrinsic character of each. Yup. They love coffee, cafe culture, and serving up a sweet and balanced cup they're proud to put the Anchorhead Coffee name on. (They also love toys like drones, cameras, dirt bikes and motorcycles).
