Our staple roast is a blend of coffee from Brazil and Peru roasted at a light/medium profile, giving it a smooth chocolate and nutty taste. But at Rootless we don’t need to bore you with specifics. It’s our most popular option because when you take your first sip you’ll pause, smile, and say, “That is a damn fine cup of coffee.”

Damn Fine Coffee?
Aside from the blend of incredible ethically sourced coffee from Peru and Brazil, this light/medium roast has its own story. When we started Rootless, the first words out of Sean's mouth were, "This is a damn good coffee." Without realizing it, we all looked at each other and said, "Damn fine coffee." A nod to our favorite 90s cult classic television series, we immediately decided to call this A Damn Fine Cup Of Coffee.
Best Ways To Brew
This blend works perfectly in a standard coffee pot, a French press, or a pour over. Our goal was being able to have small batch roasted coffee that works in all formats without compromising the tasting notes and quality. A Damn Fine Cup Of Coffee is the best diner coffee we've ever had, but it wows third wave coffee snobs even right out of the Mr. Coffee. Coffee should be accessible, not confusing and polarizing. To us, this is the best light/medium roast coffee.
Coarse vs. Fine Coffee
In our quest to make coffee for everyone, we also provide it in all grind settings. If you like French press, the coarse grind is the best grind setting for coffee. If you like espresso, you will want a more fine coffee. Think of it this way: the bigger the grounds, the easier it is for water to run through. The small and more compact the grounds, the harder it is for water to run through. Even dialing in an espresso machine, this mentality helps you pull a perfectly timed shot.
Medium Roast vs. Dark Roast Coffee
We will state it again: This is NOT a dark roast coffee! Many people equate "bold coffee" with being dark. Our philosophy is letting people taste the coffee, not the burn. Medium roast and light roast coffee tend to have a bit more coffee than dark roast coffee, as its not "roasted out" of it. However, that's not always the case. Think of this as diner coffee that actually tastes great. If you're interested, you can try our take on a dark roast coffee.
What is medium roast coffee? It's simply the length of time, temperature, and roasting method involved to get this perfect combination. Not too light, not too dark, just smack dab in the middle. Think like a juicy "medium" steak. But not meat, that would be weird if it showed up in your bag.
Are your bags resealable? You bet. We make coffee storage and pouring easier than ever. No awkward scissors and ties. Pull the tab, rip it, when you're done, reseal it.
Who does the artwork for your coffee? We ask our favorite comic artists and multimedia artists to do a design based on their style and the name of coffee. With loose guidelines, we trust them to do their thing. And they always exceed expectations.
What is a small batch coffee roaster? Instead of a mass produced quantity of coffee, we do small, controlled batches in our roaster. This way we can ensure the best quality coffee, and best tasting coffee. The fun is getting to do limited and seasonal drops with new and excited roast profiles. Stay tuned for those as we go.
Why are you all so weird? Well, that's simple. We're just a bunch of scrappy punk kids who happen to have backgrounds in craft breweries, third wave coffee shops, the music industry, comics, and more. Rootless is about being yourself, so we hope we can help you BREAK FREE FROM BORING.
So far I’ve loved all the coffee that I’ve ordered from Rootless. I’ve even ordered more.
This is my favorite whole-bean espresso; the stuff in cans from Italy or from your local Starbucks cannot touch the aroma, full flavor, or versatility of these beans. I mostly make Americanos with it, but sometimes a straight double shot or a Cappuccino. It never disappoints! I usually buy local at Penny’s in the Flint Farmers Market for maximum freshness.
I was over the moon excited to see a brand based out of Michigan doing beautiful collaborations with some of my favorite wrestlers, as well as having some particularly excellent cultural and media references in their products, I had to treat myself to a bag....or two, or three. Danhausen Coffeehousen is beautifully toasty, full bodied and flavorful. One of the best cups of coffee I've ever had at home. Damn Fine also blew me out of the water. There are lovely delicate fruit notes as well as an unyielding deliciousness that lingers after you finish a sip. Brewed myself a cup of Hi, Anxiety this morning and am excited to have a cuppa. I've got my eyes on a few other blends and roasts and will absolutely be restocking and am excited to get new varieties in the future. Love y'all, thanks for making such lovely beans.
I had some Damn Fine at a wedding in Flint and loved it so much I have it shipped to Denver every month.
