Semaphore Blend is the newest addition to the core Fundamental Coffee lineup. This was one of the blends we kept up our sleeve until the time was right. Well, the time is right, or something. The name semaphore is defined as an apparatus for signaling, consisting of an upright with movable parts.

The notion is that we are signaling a return to darker roasted coffees with flavors that are developed, complex and still showcase what is special about the origins we blend together. A change in direction and a signal may be a bit overt but if you ever saw a mid-1950’s VW type-1 Beetle you know how different it was.

This new blend combines coffee from Central America and East Africa with a complex flavor profile that is unique and dynamic. Leading the way is a Guatemalan coffee from the Fraijanes region, paired with our bold Kenya Kirinyaga and a beautiful new arrival from Nicaragua. We think you will enjoy.

Fundamental Coffee Company

Country:  USA

The Fundamental team brings over 50 years of coffee experience to this venture.  It’s hard to last that long in any business without developing both a respect for the hard work of others and a point of view that informs how one goes about his or her daily work.  We aren’t shy about our opinions, but nor do we expect everyone to agree with us.  But we do hope you’ll try our coffee and let us know what you think. 

Our logo, the black circle with a never-ending wave pattern, is a stylized representation of the “third harmonic,” a common concept in music.  The first harmonic is the lowest frequency (the fundamental frequency) produced by a specific musical instrument, and since music and coffee go together and inspire us, we thought this was an excellent logo.  (There’s some cool physics at work in all this stuff about frequencies, sinusoids, and Chladni plates, but the Internet is a better source for that than our Web site.)  

You can reach us directly by email.
