Geometry

Geometry has been defined as "describing spaces that lie beyond the normal range of human experience." Soon it will also be defined as "that coffee from Onyx that I am in love with and completely redefined my relationship with coffee." It's our answer for everything and has two of our favorite coffees—a washed processed Ethiopian & Colombian. This blend has become one of our favorite coffees. We love it as a filter coffee, and we love it as espresso. And not only does is it taste great as either but it's easy to dial in as espresso or filter.

Story

Admit it—when you were a kid, you didn't think you would be thinking of Geometry as an adult. But we have turned the tables on you, like a Lazy Susan. But don't worry, our Geometry will not stress you out like middle school. Great as a filter coffee or an espresso, this blend has become our answer for everything. Don't believe us? Here are some examples:

Q: Which coffee do you want for filter coffee?
A: Geometry

Q: What coffee should we have as an espresso?
A: Geometry

Q: The Pythagorean theorem is a formula used in which form of mathematics?
A: Geometry

This coffee is ridiculously good and approachable while also remaining complex. It will convert even the most skeptical towards Specialty.

BLEND APPROACH
Our approach to creating blends is a bit different at Onyx. Instead of choosing coffees from specific countries or regions that will, in theory, intertwine well to develop complex & cohesive flavors like most, we start from the end and work our way back. This perspective means we choose to create a particular flavor profile first - deciding which acidities, sugars, and fats we want to accentuate for the coffee. Once a flavor profile has been set, in this case, blueberry, lemon, and tea for Geometry. We then start cupping blind through a large number of coffees to find these specific attributes. With this blend, the Colombian gives us a syrupy, clean, fermented fruit flavor. It shows itself upfront and in the finish. Next, we add a washed Ethiopian to add more fruit and complexity.

The purpose is that once a flavor profile is created, we update the coffees that make up Geometry every 2-3 months. This allows us to have a year-round blend with a flavor profile of high quality while retaining our commitment to seasonal coffees. This vigorous amount of cupping and blending takes a considerable amount of time. But we really think it makes the difference and is a system we use for all our blends.

Feel excited that the coffee you are tasting is always in season, and therefore, it is cupping and tasting to its full potential. We will never compromise our commitment to high-quality coffees and blends, whether it’s a single origin release or a blend component. You will not find Onyx buying “blender” coffees to save cost or prolong a good coffee. We also always keep blends to three coffees or less and maintain ratios in the build. This way what you extract is the flavor profile we designed.

Green Cost

The subject of paying for green coffee is inherently complicated. While the amount paid is very important, the payment terms and type of contract negotiated during the purchase are also paramount. Paying $5/lb of coffee can be a great price, but could be detrimental to a producer if the payment terms exceed that of their needs. Here we will dive into not only what was paid for the coffee, but how the coffee was purchased. There is a glossary of terms to be found below which will aid in your understanding of industry terms.

Farm Gate - This reflects what is paid to the producer of the coffee at the farm level. Oftentimes in terms of our relationship coffees, FOB is fairly close to the farm gate price, except for countries like Ethiopia and Kenya, when it is very difficult to trace back all the way to the producer.

FOB - Free on Board. This means that the seller is responsible for any overland fees that happen before the coffee is on board the ship. This is our most frequently listed green cost, as it is the most simple way to present what we pay a seller, but it does not reflect what the person growing the coffee was paid.

EXW- This most often reflects the 'spot' price that we paid for a coffee. All of the cost is paid by the importer, and more often than not the FOB price as well as the transport costs are unknown.
