Dubuque, IA

Nine Mile Sunset

A dark roast roasted dark enough to capture a favorably strong roast flavor while avoiding any burnt and smoky aspects.
Sumatra, El Salvador
Fully Washed, Semi-Washed

Notes from the curator

We roast and blend beans at several different roast levels from several different growing regions to craft a wholly unique flavor that cannot be duplicated in any one single-origin coffee bean. The scrupulously dark roast level of this bold, full-bodied and complex blend will inspire your senses with its balance of roast flavor and coffee characteristics, and will leave you with a clean aftertaste and no bitterness.


Verena Street Coffee is named after the quiet neighborhood nestled in the Mississippi River valleys of Dubuque, Iowa where we grew up. Five houses lined this street and our extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents were our only neighbors. Read more...

Customer reviews

the chocolate notes are smooth and the pepper is subtle
5 / 5
Don’t get too scared by the notes of pepper. This pulls a really nice espresso. I think it actually pulls a little more crema for me than this roaster’s primary espresso roast. The whole experience is very smooth with the pepper dominant in the lingering aftertaste. To me, better for a straight espresso than milky drinks - the taste has a lot of subtlety you don’t want to lose out on. Do recommend.
II’ve been drinking Verina street coffee for several years. I’ve doubled it my favorite! I found it when shopping in Dubuque several years ago. I now live in Florida and am delighted to find out I can have it delivered to me regularly. 9 Mile Sunset is the best! Great rich taste without bitterness.
