Have you ever wondered how and why Darks Coffee Roasters decided on their blend names? scroll down to find out more >>


Our 3 flagship espresso blends, U47, M49 and LA2A as well as our FET47 decaf coffee all take their names from vintage microphones and musical equipment!

At Darks, as well as being coffee roasters we’re also longtime musicians and in a previous life, we even ran a recording studio!

When coming up with our espresso blends we realised the way we described them sounded a lot like the way we described the sound of our favourite music gear. Tops, mid-range and lows could be translated to acidity, body and finish in the coffee.
