Ozolotepec is the name given to a town and the greater region in the southern mountain range in Oaxaca. For many years the people of Ozolotepec were in disagreement with the people of the coast, and especially with those from the town of San Mateo. Fisherman from this seaside town would sometimes come up into the mountain range to sell fresh fish and prawns, and although this was met with some level of skepticism, the mountain people would buy what the fisherman offered. On one occasion, however, the fisherman returned not only with their fish but also with much higher prices.
The authorities of the town told the fisherman that they either had to lower the price back to what it was or simply they would not be permitted to sell. Angry the fishermen cursed the area and told the people to wait until the first rains of May. May arrived and with it a storm as no one had ever seen before, and slowly but surely, it began washing the town away. One of the town elders was magical shapeshifter and knew that there was something more at work than just nature. With cotton and a needle, she started to sew a cloud that rose up to push the storm away.
For nearly totally destroying their town, Ozolotepec declared war on the San Mateo and build up an army of people from the surrounding regions. As they were making their way towards the coast three elders from SanMateo came up to meet them to negotiate. They said the three fishermen who caused the storm had been killed by the spell of the elder and that more than this, they wanted nothing more than peace between them. An agreement was reached and to this day the peace between these two groups continues, the descendants of these mountain people produce, amongst many other things, coffee and every year when the may rain finally comes, they know that the peace will protect them from a storm that could otherwise wash their farms away.

This coffee is a triumph of the taste buds and of the spirit. The mad priest strikes again!!
The crema is gorgeous! The bean, roast, and grind quality are all superb!
Solid mug. Dope finish and look. I've had this thing for a year and it's held up. Use it every day.
It wasn't what I expected, but I was delighted that a coffee could be so fruity and floral with no real bitterness. Pretty solid stuff!
Thank you for finding this for us and for making it available to us.
Better than all the rest. All coffee lovers have to give this a try. Hopefully we'll get that chance sooner rather than later!
So good! I’m excited to go to bed at night so I can wake up and drink this coffee.
I absolutely loved the smooth, rich taste of Dark Night of the Soul from Mad Priest Coffee. Every bean was full of rich flavor that brightened my day and night. A bold and delicious brew in my cup! Caffeine really never tasted so good!
So good, will definitely become a new favorite.

First of all, when the package came in the mail I could SMELL the coffee just holding it. It smelled divine! I kept sniffing it before I even opened the packaging.
Second, I was very disappointed to not taste it. But it was supposed to be a gift. I was severely tempted to just keep it. However, my wonderfully fabulous boss has been very overworked and I don't want him to quit and then be replaced with a boss from hell. Seriously, the other two locations have hell bosses. I don't want that. So, this was part of my ongoing endeavor to make him feel appreciated and never leave because I would be big sad. And he said it tasted great, so thanks for the help Mad Priest. Shout Out to best Boss Jim!
This is our favorite coffee
