New Website/New Names

Carrie Masek

Our new website is launching this weekend! We've made some changes that will hopefully make the site easier to navigate and more fun to use.

One of the biggest changes is the names of our Signature Blends and Espressos. They're still the great coffees you love, but we decided it would be fun to add historical context to the names. We call it “A Taste in Time” and have added the year the coffee was developed or most commonly used to the coffees' names. We've also changed some of the names themselves to capture the most interesting location associated with the coffee. I'll be writing a blog about the historical contexts of the new names later, but to minimize frustration and confusion in the meantime, here's a list of our Signature Blends and Espressos alongside their new names:

Signature Blend/Espresso                       A Taste in Time

Boston Blend                                                       WW1 Roast 1917

Chicago Blend                                                     Chicago Cup 1925

Espresso Milano                                                 Espresso Milano 1900

Espresso Portland                                              Espresso Pacifico 1985

Espresso Trieste                                                 Espresso Trieste 1930

Historic Mokha Java                                         Mokha Java 1790

Ile de France Blend                                            Ile de France 1700

Kona Blend                                                          Kona Coffee 1964

Mokha Java                                                         Cafe Mokha Java 2000

New Orleans Blend                                            New Orleans Roast 1803

San Francisco Blend                                          San Francisco Foglifter 1950

St. Louis Blend                                                    Cowboy Coffee 1870

We are also introducing two new coffees in our Taste in Time. Espresso Kyoto 2010, a lively, sweet and rich espresso inspired by the espresso enjoyed in modern Japanese coffee houses and On the Road Buzz 1990, a high-caffeine, big-flavor coffee designed to fuel the longest road trip.

A quick word about bookmarks. Since most of our coffees' names are changing, the direct URL to their product will be changing as well. In theory, the old pages will all redirect to the new ones, there's a chance you'll get an error message. If you do, please return to our home page by “clicking here.” The website should take you to the new home page where you can easily find your coffee.

If you have any problems, please contact us. We'll be happy to answer any questions!

Thank you for being part of Coffee by the Roast. We hope you enjoy the new website as much as we do!
