The Dean Coffee Sachet

Our flagship roast now in a convenient, compact, light weight, backpacking, travel size. We use sachets instead of bags to ensure the water reaches all of the coffee grounds to extract the delicious oils that these Grade-1 Specialty Beans provide. Each pack has six (6) compostable sachets in a resealable pouch.


No more need to pack a mini French press or a pour over filter. Pack lighter, pack smarter. 

Historical Significance

(DLR) Dean Lake Ray was a pilot in the United States Army Air Force demonstration team. While the Team was on a Latin American Tour in Nicaragua, Captain Ray's aircraft suffered an malfunction. In his attempt to land, his F-86 Sabre Jet suffered a complete flame out when turning to final. At this point he and his aircraft were aimed directly at the audience of the airshow.


In this moment, Capt. Ray chose what was right and not what was easy. Instead of ejecting from the aircraft an saving himself, he piloted the aircraft towards a barren field.


Because of his actions that day, Dean Lake Ray left his family behind to save the countless lives of those whom he never met. The President of Nicaragua not only attended Capt. Ray's funeral, he declared him a National Hero of Nicaragua, and had two stamps made, one of Capt. Ray's bust and the other of his aircraft. These stamps are stored within the Smithsonian National Postal Museum.

We can only hope that he is proud of his grandson's life accomplishments including military service and now, owning and operating Barista Bean Lab.
