Onyx Coffee Lab

Krampus - An "Unfriendly" Onyx Holiday Origin

Vanilla, clove, cocoa.

This cup is loaded with sweetness and spice undergirded with cocoa and vanilla. But it doesn't stop there. Complex, with plum and citrus swirling into bright acidity and a velvety body, it's creamy, caramelized, and well balanced.

Meet The Krampus Blend

To be honest; not everyone has been nice this whole year. Even us. Despite this, all of us deserve some joy, and Onyx Coffee Lab realizes this. So for the holidays, they've created a sweet and smoky Holiday Origin coffee called Krampus. Excellent for you or your enemies, whether that be your nemesis in Accounting or your neighbor on the corner.

This single origin coffee comes the Murang'a region in Kenya. It's developed in the roast to a level of perfection that even Santa would approve of. Giving coal is so 2016. Stick some Krampus in their stocking instead.

Onyx Coffee Lab

Lest the myth perpetuate that specialty coffee does not come from Arkansas, Onyx Coffee Lab is blowing that particular urban legend out of the water while creating a few of their own. Husband-wife owners Jon and Andrea Allen have rapidly taken the coffee world by storm with their combination of art and science.

The magic starts with sourcing, with countless small sample batches from coffee importers and with direct visits to farms around the world. "I know direct trade means a lot of different things to different people, but for us if we don’t put money in the producers hands we won’t call it direct trade," says Jon. Once found, the coffees are carefully roasted in twenty-pound or smaller batches, then shared with the three Onyx cafés and over 150 wholesale customers in thirty states.

Clearly Onyx Coffee Lab knows what they're doing: not only were they named Imbibe Magazine's 2016 Coffee Bar of the year, this northwest Arkansas matrix of coffee know-how just cleaned house at the April 2017 U.S. Coffee Championships. Andrea Allen placed second in the Barista Championship, Dylan Siemans won first in Brewer's Cup, and roaster Mark Michaelson place first in the Roaster Championship!
