Dare to live by your own set of values. Level up your mornings with our most caffeinated roast, Übermensch.
Übermensch starts out as an ethically sourced mixture of Tanzanian and Indian Robusta beans. Robusta beans notably contain up to double the caffeine content of traditional Arabica beans.
After you place your order, we apply a medium-light roast to this blend. Both the degree of freshness and type of roast serve to preserve Übermensch's high caffeine content and bring out its sharp & spicy overtones. This leaves us with a coffee that we are sure you will agree lives up to its namesake.
About the Name
Übermensch (literally "Overman") refers to Friedrich Nietzsche's conception of the superior human, coined in his infamous Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Nietzsche believes the Übermensch ideal to be a model which humanity ought to strive towards. Nietzsche's characterization of the Übermensch notably is not as benign and muted as one may expect. Nietzche argues that to be an Übermensch one requires a readiness to engage in violent, aggressive behaviors to combat those who would lead one astray from one's own set of values.
Philosophy matters. Studying philosophy is one of the best ways for students of all ages to learn how to think critically and creatively – skills that are increasingly necessary in our rapidly modernizing world. Studying philosophy helps students overcome disinformation and divisiveness by giving them the tools to understand and communicate effectively about the world around them.
Everyone should have a chance to study philosophy, not just those who attend college. When you place an order with us, we donate 20% of our profits to programs dedicated to increasing people's access to philosophy education nationwide.
We stand by our coffee. If you are not satisfied with your order for any reason, get in touch with us, and we will refund 100% of the order, no questions asked.
A welcome addition to the coffee line-up. This is for late night brooding. But it can also be used for mid morning re-charge.
