Our Signature Dark Roast Coffee Blend
The Higgins is a coffee blend featuring notes of chocolate and caramelized sugar, and is the darkest (and most popular) blend we offer. Formerly known as the Obsidian coffee blend, The Higgins is crafted to deliver you a syrupy body with subtle brightness and a sweet finish. This fan favorite blend was named after Generous Coffee’s Co-Founder and President, Ben Higgins.
“We have a limited amount of time on this earth, and I wanted to work for and with people and organizations that wanted to make an impact. Generous Coffee has been that company.”
- Co-Founder & President, Ben Higgins

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is special about The Higgins?
A: Originally called the Obsidian, this coffee was renamed after our co-founder and president, Ben Higgins. Consisting of both Caturra and Typica varietals of coffee, The Higgins is a uniquely balanced and flavorful dark roast blend.
Q: What is the best way to brew The Higgins?
A: The Higgins is an ideal coffee for French Press, which will accentuate its bold chocolate flavors. We suggest using 2 tablespoons of coffee for every 6 oz. cup of coffee, or 30 grams of coffee for every 500 milliliter brew.
Q: What are the flavor notes in the Higgins?
A: The Higgins features notes of chocolate, caramelized sugar, and sweet cherry. Brewing the Higgins with a French Press will result in stronger chocolate and dark caramel notes, while brewing as espresso will punch up the fruity cherry notes, ideal for lattes and cappuccinos.
