The word stemwinder is most commonly used today to describe a particularly fiery or notable speech, usually in the context of politics.  Many mistakenly equate the word with long-windedness, but its use dates to the 1800s and had nothing to do with speechmaking.  When watches with stems for winding (rather than cumbersome, frequently lost keys) became available, they represented a huge leap forward.  So taken were people with this technology that “stemwinder” was eventually used to describe most anything of exceptional quality.  It is in that spirit that we’ve named this coffee Stemwinder Blend. 

Stemwinder builds on Single Coil not by replacing a component, but by adding one and giving it a courageous dark roast.  By adding a plantation coffee from the Waghi valley of Papua New Guinea, we add body, flavor and complexity; roasting it a bit darker makes the coffee sweeter and more balanced.  It’s richer than Single Coil and livelier than Humbucker.  Our preferred blend for espresso.
