Delicious Peace - Dark Roast


Delicious Peace - Dark Roast


In 2003, a Ugandan farmer walked door-to-door asking his Muslim, Christian, and Jewish neighbors to leave behind a history of conflict and unite to face their struggle against poverty caused by low coffee prices. The farmers came together and founded a cooperative to build peace and prosperity in their community.

Thanksgiving Coffee helped the 200 co-op members form the new intertribal/interfaith cooperative called the Naminyoni Community of Shalom Coffee Cooperative. We are proud to have been their first and primary buyer for nearly 20 years.

Since that initial investment, we came to learn that the biggest challenge in the daily lives of these Ugandan farmers was the lack of clean drinking water. The average family spent 60% of their income on medical expenses. So we partnered with an amazing organization to create water filters with materials and labor from the co-op’s local community, funded with rebates from the sale of each package of Delicious Peace. To date, we’ve raised over $128,988 and plan to continue the program to protect the well-being of even more coffee-farm communities. Learn more about this amazing program…

The Delicious Peace Dark Roast has assertive fudge and chocolate notes, with toasty hints of caramelized pecan, and a lightly smoky, brown sugar sweetness in the finish.

Coffee to Water Ratio

Using the correct amount of coffee will ensure that your coffee is brewed to strength, without over-extracting or under-extracting the coffee to compensate for an inappropriate dose. We recommend 2 grams of coffee for every fluid ounce of water used to brew. Weighing coffee is the most accurate way to measure the appropriate dose. If a scale is not available, we recommend 2 heaping tablespoons of ground coffee for every 5 ounces of water used to brew.

Grind Size

Producing the correct particle size in ground coffee is one of the most important steps in coffee brewing. In general, a finer grind will produce a more intense brew and a coarser grind will produce a less intense brew. At the same time, a grind that is too fine will produce an over-extracted, astringent brew, and a grind that is too coarse will produce a weak, under-extracted brew lacking flavor. In pour-over methods, grind size also affects the rate of extraction, as water will pass more slowly through a finer grind, and more quickly through a coarser grind. We strongly recommend burr grinders over blade grinders.

Water Temperature and Quality

Water temperature dramatically affects the extraction of coffee’s flavor during brewing. We recommend brewing with water at 200-202° Fahrenheit for best results. Using fresh, clean, chlorine-free water is essential.
