Post Tenebras Lux Blend

To commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, our “Post Tenebras Lux Blend” combines both Dark and Light.

Also known as a Black & Tan, this blend begins with a French roast's hint of tobacco, cocoa, and smoked almonds, and perfectly finishes with a City roast’s bright cinnamon highlights and smooth mouthfeel.

 

On October 31, 1517, a young monk named Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of All Saints Church in Wittenberg, Germany. The document criticized various teachings and practices of the Roman Catholic church, thus beginning the firestorm known as the Reformation. In the years that followed, Protestant reformers took up as their battle cry the Latin phrase “Post Tenebras Lux", which means “After darkness, light”. These men believed that the Roman Catholic church had been veiling truth and hope from the common layperson, contributing to an age of spiritual and cultural darkness. Martin Luther, John Calvin, and other leaders of the Reformation brought about not only theological reform, but also eventual social and educational changes that are still relevant 500 years later.

 

This blend is available in 14oz., 2lb., and 5lb. bags.
