Onyx Coffee - Southern Weather Blend
Southern Weather is our great house coffee that you know and love. Creating a blend is like choosing a color palate for a canvas. For us, Southern Weather embodies the wonderful relationships between a citric acidity balance and wonderful, full-bodied chocolates. We serve this every day and find it comfortable, yet surprisingly complex and sophisticated. We brew this with all devices all day long, even as espresso!
Story of this Coffee
Southern Weather was the first blend we ever created, and the plan was simple. We wanted something sweet, comfortable, and approachable in a world of polarizing Specialty Coffee. Something anyone would like and would be easy to control during extraction. We sell more of this coffee than anything else, and I think it’s our commitment to keep the flavor profile intact. Sweet caramelized sugars, round full body, and a bright citrusy finish that leaves a clean, refreshing aftertaste. It pairs with any meal and works well with dairy and non-dairy milk. For us, Southern Weather embodies the excellent relationships between a citric acidity, balance, and wonderful, full-bodied chocolates. This is considered our house blend and we think it could be yours as well :)
Southern Weather has been a staple since our company’s inception, and we tend to think of it as our comfort coffee. Despite age, background, coffee experience or brew method, this coffee always seems to please.

“Never Settle for Good Enough” is a mantra that resonated with Onyx years ago before they knew it would be their guiding star in everything they pursued.
Today this mantra is lived out by starting with traveling to find the absolute best coffees. This plays out across different countries, continents, and terrains. Onyx maintains high standards for how their coffees score and taste. When the coffees land at their HQ, they roast and cup and make minute adjustments to the roast profiles until they make the coffees shine in the cup.
The coffee that Onyx roasts and ships every weekday utilizing solar energy from the roof of their facility. A sample is taken from each roast and cupped for quality, to track the characteristics of their coffees, and to give feedback on roast profiles. This ensures that every coffee that goes out not only meets their standards but is truly remarkable. This data is even available to view on their website.
Whether you’re a coffee professional or you’re just getting started, you can trust that excellence and hospitality run through the core of every part of Onyx's business.
