Excited to announce our newest coffee! Dulci Vitrioli is a dark roast, single origin coffee straight from the Chiapas region of Mexico. In contrast to our first coffee, this dark roast has a more stereotypical coffee flavor. It has a strong bitter bite with chocolatey accents and a sexy, smoky aroma.
If you are a Starbucks fan, then this coffee is for you. In Chiapas, the region in Mexico where Dulci Vitrioli comes from, you find coffee that has a chocolatey, medium body. It has many small producers that do a lot of the coffee processing by hand. Many of them even produce their own electricity to support their delicious coffee bean.
The story of Ether
In 1846, Dr Morton, a Boston area dentist, used a concoction of inhaled ether to anesthetize a patient during a tooth extraction. It was so good at eliminating the pain associated with his procedure that he knew he was onto something special. Word spread and before he knew it, he was in front of dozens of surgeons a the famous Massachusetts General Hospital, preparing to anesthetize a patient that needed a tumor removed from his neck.
Dr Morton Administered the inhaled ether while the surgeon removed the tumor. The audience looked on in awe as the patient was not screaming out in pain.
When the patient awoke, he described an experience with minimal pain, "as though the skin had been scratched with a hoe," to which the surgeon Dr Collins famously exclaimed:
'Gentlemen, this is no humbug!'
In honor of Dr Morton and this incredible development in the field of surgery, we have created Dulci Vitrioli. This latin phrase is borrowed from German physician and botanist Dr Valerius Cordus from the early 1500s that described the earliest known preparation of ether that he called oleum dulci vitrioli or "sweet oil of vitriol."
So what are you waiting for!? Go here and buy some of Dr Morton's honorary coffee and cheers to the fact that surgery doesn't hurt.
