DANK 3.0 is a single variety, Pache, and the coffee cherries were picked on 1/1/21 so this coffee is extremely fresh! The coffee underwent the natural process (where the cherry dries around the coffee seeds), fermented for 36 hours with the addition of champagne yeast. After this, the coffee was very slowly dried over the course of 5 weeks. Typical drying times can be anywhere from 10 days - 3 weeks. This slower approach to drying the raw beans allows for exotic tasting notes to come through.
With each rendition of DANK the goal is simple, to deliver a delicious & sweet espresso. The taste profile is a super creamy mouthfeel, deliciously caramelized sugars, milk duds, and a tropical lingering fruitiness of grapes & berries.
A portion of proceeds from the sale of DANK, the End the War on Drugs T-Shirt, Rolling Tray and Tote are donated to FAMM (Families Against Mandatory Minimums).
Mandatory minimum sentences — set by Congress, not judges, require automatic, minimum prison terms for certain crimes. Most mandatory minimum sentences apply to drug offenses, but Congress has also enacted them for other crimes. In the 1980’s Congress enacted mandatory minimum sentences for drug crimes, causing federal prison populations to skyrocket with nonviolent drug offenders. By tying judges’ hands, mandatory minimums essentially took power away from judges and gave it to prosecutors, who could then threaten to charge defendants with crimes that would trigger a mandatory minimum. Like alcohol prohibition in the early 1900s, drug prohibition has not only failed its mission but has made its mission impossible.
- 650,000 people were arrested for marijuana violations in 2015 –comprising almost half of all drug arrests in the U.S. That’s one marijuana arrest every 50 seconds!
- 89% of arrests were for simple possession, not for selling or manufacturing.
- 2.3 million people were incarcerated in the U.S. in 2016 – the highest incarceration rate in the world
- U.S. states spend more than $3 billion enforcing marijuana prohibition every year. $$ that could go to rebuilding communities.
