At a time when Arabica whole bean coffee simply wasn't available to average consumers, the proprietor of a small Los Angeles grocery took an idea from the past and made a pioneering leap that led to quality coffee as we know it today. In the early 1970s, W.S. Sarkisian developed blends under the Sarks Gourmet Coffee brand, and began shipping the product directly from the roaster to grocery stores, without layovers in warehouses. Fresh, delicious and surprisingly affordable, Sarks revolutionized the coffee business.
Today a prime offering of Bay Area Coffee, Café Sarks uses only 100 percent Arabica coffee beans harvested in the world's finest growing regions. Carefully roasted to bring forth a balance of body and flavor, Café Sarks includes a complete line of coffees, from 100 percent Colombian to the Jamaican Me Crazy blend of Roaster's Reserve.
|Hawaiian Blend Classic

cool trade winds off the Hawaiian Islands, combine to create the
perfect micro-climate for growing great coffee. These Hawaiian
coffees are blended with other Arabican mild coffees grown near the

rich and full bodied coffee blend. The Hawaiian and Central American
coffees are carefully roasted independently, to achieve each type’s
peak aroma and taste profile. The beans are then blended after
roasting to yield a unique balance of rich flavor and delightful
aroma. It’s the art of hand batch roasting fine rare coffees in
conjunction with blending after roast, that creates the signature of
a quality coffee unmatched in today’s over promised gourmet coffee
environment. Try it – you’ll not only like it, you’ll gain an
appreciation for quality!
