Black Magic


(58 customer reviews)



A blend of dark roasted coffees from the South China Seas and Latin America. Syrupy flavor envelopes the naturally sweet undertones of these coffees brought to an Italian Roast. Easy on the stomach, mellow, but full bodied. A step lighter than the French. (link) You may have tried this one before by a different name – we also call it Italian Roast and Vienna Roast!

    I’ve been drinking this blend since 2005. Bold, yet smooth. It’s still my favourite!

  2. matt vogelsang (verified owner)

    Absolutely one of the best bags of beans you’ll buy for the price. Bold, flavorful, and smooth as silk!

  3. Dan (verified owner)

    Just discovered Steaming Bean on a fall trip to Telluride! Their coffee is FANTASTIC. The Black Magic blend is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Just dark and bold enough for my taste, but SUPER smooth! We love it. Thanks Guys!

    My favorite. I’m still bummed about the name change though.

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks for all the comments…try the French Vanilla next time instead of the Toasted Almond..Morning Buzz had robusta coffee in it and I don’t want to use that..sorry…couldn’t help the Velvet Hammer name change..trademark issue..the coffee is the same’s our best seller

    I was recently introduced to The Steaming Bean Coffee in Telluride at the Franz Klammer. I was pleased by the taste and quality of the coffee and doubly so when I saw their prices while ordering on line. The offerings are extensive but not burdensome in styles or sheer number. Black Magic, which is available and issued at the Franz Klammer Lodge, is the perfect coffee to me with bold flavor and smoothness that reflects the knowledge of the craft of selecting and roasting fine coffees. Black Magic has become my new “go to” coffee. Thanks guys! And keep it up.

    Our coffee of choice for years now. Great flavor, bold and smooth tasting. Even though we can buy it locally, we order online to keep it in supply, too many trips to the store and found this one out of stock due to its popularity. The shipping and customer service is excellent!

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks for the kind words..glad you like it! Enjoy

    I look forward to the Black Magic every time I go to the Franz Klammer! I can’t wait to wake up in the morning to the robust flavor of this coffee. No lingering taste and smooth but robust. Reminds me of Telluride. So now I order it from California.

  10. Jan McKim (verified owner)

    Based on my cousins recommendation, one of which lives in Telluride, I am hooked on this coffee. I now have my housemate hooked on it as well. Thank you! I have been enjoying my first cup while listening to the birds in the morning. Beautiful way to start the day in Golden.

    I was visiting my sister in Colorado and the first morning there, I poured myself a cup of coffee. It was the smoothest, most perfectly balanced cup of coffee I had ever had. I was blown away. A friend of her’s who was also visiting, and is a hard core pour-over freak, brought the coffee with him. I asked him about the coffee and he told me about Steaming Bean of Teullride. I’ve been drinking the mainstream brands for years now and realized it was time to move on up to a boutique roaster. I ordered a 24 oz bag when I returned to Virginia and actually look forward to getting up in the morning so I can enjoy a little Black Magic. When it runs low, I’m going to try some of their other coffees. Steaming Bean has this process down to an art and I recommend to anyone who’s into coffee to give it a try. A+++

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks so much. Its great to read ALL comments and we do strive to under promise andover deliver! Try the Avalanche Blend. A little lighter profile but still the heavy body from the Black Magic portion.
      Much appreciate the kind words 🙂
      Best regards

    We first experienced Black Magic coffee in a small book shop/coffee house in Ridgway CO several years ago and have been ordering it ever since. We have sampled it to friends in NJ who have now been ordering it. They in turn introduced their friends to it and they too have been ordering it.

    • Mick Hill

      Thank you Walter! We appreciate the referrals…everything helps in this crowded world of coffee! Many thanks

    I am a regular customer for Black Magic…maybe it should be Black Gold instead? It’s the best, and I say this after extensive search for comprable while in Seattle….

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks Scott! I appreciate the comment! We’ve found quite a few customers in Seattle and that’s very flattering to us.
      Cheers and thanks for the biz!
      Best regards

    Love this coffee. So delicious and vibrant with each sip. I will order more often.

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks Dawn! Appreciate the comment..cheers!

  15. juansal2212 (verified owner)

    I’ve had this coffee since it was called Steaming Bean, Black Magic is the right choice for some one who likes dark coffee without the acidic after taste.

    • Mick Hill

      Thank you Juan. It’s partly the coffees we use (Suamtra and Brazil) and partly the slow roasting style…glad you like it! We appreciate the kind words.

  16. Kurtis Houston (verified owner)

    Tastes great, love your coffees!

  17. Cheryl Colston

    Love the deep rich flavor. I add a little agave and it brings out chocolate notes. I have been mail ordering this coffee for 5 years from the first time I tasted it in Ouray, Colorado.

  18. Bret West (verified owner)

    It is hard to find a dark coffee that is not over-roasted. Unlike the burnt, bitter taste like a Starbucks brand, this coffee is smooth and rich. It is probably because it is roasted fresh and not stored as roasted coffee begins to produce acid over time after roasting. This is my new favorite coffee and I am looking forward to trying more of the Telluride line up. – Bret

  19. Leslie Hughes (verified owner)

    I love this blend, I will definitely be ordering more. It’s full bodied, rich, and smooth. So far, it’s my favorite, I really like how this roaster has dark roasts without being burnt. This roast has a deep wonderful flavor! Great prices too for such great coffee.

  20. Dan (verified owner)

    LOVE ALL of the blends, and Black Magic is our favorite!!! Dark, delicious and smooth. Makes a great cup of Java!!!!
    Thanks TCR!!

  21. Ben Kleimer (verified owner)

    Excellent. For a nice kick, add a touch of dark honey.

  22. Doug Partington (verified owner)

    My oldest son, daughter, and randomly picked up the Dark Magic from the City Market grocery store during our vacation to Steamboat Springs last December. We didn’t need much coffee for the few days we were there, and as a result we were pleasantly surprised at the high quality of coffee we purchased from the bulk bins. In the future, we will certainly be picking up more Black Magic and trying some of the other roasts at the Steaming Bean. Thank you to the Telluride Coffee Roasters for making a positive impact to our most recent adventure!

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks Doug! Glad you liked the coffee..low acid and rich full body in that Black Magic

  23. Alice Godec (verified owner)

    We first tasted Black Magic last summer when we were in Telluride for the Jazz Festival. Our daughter owns Medicine Ranch there along with Josh Geeter, & we absolutely LOVED this smooth dark coffee. We have a Rancilio Espresso Machine at home & this is one of the first times we have gotten so much “crema” from our machine. Thanks for such a delicious coffee.

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks Alice! Glad that works well for you. I like it as espresso too..soft and heavy body with no bitterness

  24. dkw5855 (verified owner)

    I have been buying coffee here for over 5 years . Started when I was on vacation and visiting the coffee house downtown Telluride and then getting hooked . This blend smells so good in the bag and tastes even better . Smooth blend with a dark edge ! Thanks

  25. Kelly (verified owner)

    Absolutely love Black Magic. I was started buying this coffee when I moved to Steamboat in 2012. I’ve since moved away and buy it in bulk and have it shipped. The coffee is always consistent and has the flavors I love. TCR is quick to ship ordered product and I’m a happy customer!

    • Mick Hill

      Great to hear Kelly! Thanks so much. All the best Mick

    This stuff is ‘magic,’ I order it all the way from Toledo, Ohio! It is worth every penny! I can’t wait to visit some day!

  28. John Sihle (verified owner)

    This is my favorite coffee. I always have some in my house.

  29. April Owen (verified owner)

    We found Black Magic in the cabinet of our AirBNB when visited Telluride in early March – before the world went crazy. We bought two big bags to take home with us as it was some of the best coffee we have had. I don’t even use half and half anymore because it is just that good alone! Now that we are home full time, we are drinking a lot more coffee. I just got my second shipment of (4) 24 ounce bags. We are also trying other blends but this still our favorite. Thanks for still roasting and delivering. We would be so sad if we didn’t have a nice cup of coffee in the morning.

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks April! So glad you like it. You might want to try the Suamtra Royal Badger sometime as’s a lighter roast than the Black Magic but still very low acid and flavorful


  30. Janelle Blessing (verified owner)

    This is a great brew if you like to drink coffee all day, and desire a strong flavor. It’s easy on the stomach while remaining bright and balanced throughout each sip. (or gulp or swig depending on the time of day!)

  31. Caleb Martin (verified owner)

    Simply Delicious. Great coffee for anytime of day, easy on the stomach. Only bummer is I end up drinking way too much of it!

  32. Nancy (verified owner)

    Excellent coffee! My favorite place to drink it is Telluride, but it’s also wonderful while sitting on my patio near Austin, TX. Its rich flavor takes me right back to the beautiful mountain village where I discovered this extraordinary coffee.

  33. Sue Soza (verified owner)

    Fantastic smooth great taste

  34. Tina (verified owner)

    Excellent coffee! Bold but smooth.

  35. Ashley (verified owner)

    My husband and I first had black magic on our honeymoon at a ranch in Colorado. We loved this coffee from the first cup! There is zero bitterness; just bold, smooth, delicious coffee. We took a picture of the bag that was in our cabin so we could look it up. On the way home from the airport, we found the Telluride Coffee Roasters website and bought 5 pounds! Shipping was super fast and we are now enjoying black magic at home but still missing Colorado!

  36. Charles (verified owner)

    Even though we sold our condo in Telluride, we continue to order our Telluride Coffee. Everyone that visited us loved the coffee. We keep on drinking it.

  37. Lynda Zeringue (verified owner)

    Black Magic is the first coffee I tried from TCR (formerly Steaming Bean), during a visit to my brother’s new place in Norwood. When I ran out, I called my brother and asked him to send me MORE for my birthday. Smooth and sleek, this coffee is spectacular!

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks Lynda! Glad you like it

  38. Caitlin H (verified owner)

    Incredible coffee!! It’s by far the best part of my morning and smells absolutely delicious. Grateful there are options to buy more in bulk!

  39. Barbara (verified owner)

    I regularly order beans from Telluride Roasters. Usually I order medium blends, but I tried this dark blend for something different. It truly is Black Magic! So smooth and rich! I used to shy away from dark blends , because they tend to get bitter. Not this one! I will definitely put this in my rota!

  40. Mark Turner (verified owner)

    Agree with above reviews, bold, smooth and not bitter. I’m not a real dark coffee drinker but this one is good. My wife was pleasantly surprised by the flavor and we’ll add this one to our list to order.

  41. Al (verified owner)

    Black Magic knocks it out of the park.

  42. SHARON HAGER (verified owner)

    We thought we were drinking good coffee until we tried Black Magic. The BEST coffee we have ever purchased and we will make this a staple in our home.

  43. Susan Madonna (verified owner)

    Wonderful roast! Strong yet smooth. This is one of my favorite coffees in a long time. I would highly recommend to anyone who loves a dark, smooooth roast!

  44. JP (verified owner)

    We first found this coffee through pure lick and have since made this our preferred go to. I have now purchased some for my family and will continue. Thank you

  45. Elizabeth Lyons (verified owner)

    I discovered Black Magic at the grocery store in Telluride as I was passing through on a six week long camping trip this past summer. I absolutely love it and am now buying 5 lb bags each month. Your coffee is so dang good and rivaled only by your excellent customer service. Thank you for making every single morning even better!

    • Mick Hill

      Thank you Elizabeth! All the best

  46. Carolyn Elkins (verified owner)

    Wonderful stuff! I finally subscribed because it is so good. Worth getting out of bed in the morning, the aroma is fantastic and the taste. Grateful to my sister for introducing me to this.

  47. Holly (verified owner)

    Absolutely love this coffee. It is a wonderful full bodied rich coffee that is gentle on the stomach. All other coffees pale in comparison since I tried this!

    • Keith Hill

      Thank you Holly!

    This is hands down my favorite coffee! It is very flavorful but not overly strong. I look forward to my morning coffee everyday! Cannot recommend this coffee enough.

      Thank you Lindsey! Those comments mean a lot to us. Much appreciated

    THE BEST! I first tried this in 2021, and did not have time to find the source. Summer 2022 back in CO, I was determined to find it and happy to find you are online. This is the BEST coffee I have had…smooth, rich, and very easy on my stomach. It is flavorful and not at all bitter like other brands. Doesn’t need creamer or sweetener with it. And I love it hot, iced, and in coffee shakes. I ordered other roasts as well to stock up and give away. And thank you Mick for your prompt response online to my inquiry.

  50. Caroline (verified owner)

    We got hooked on this coffee when we spent last summer in CO and now we get it shipped to our home in AZ. It is big, bold, dark and delicious. If you like dark roasted coffee you will love Black Magic.

    And to add a note on having this coffee shipped out of state. The 5 lb bag of whole bean coffee was roasted on Monday and arrived at my home in AZ on Wednesday, shipped for free.

  51. David Stone (verified owner)

    I only have one word to describe all the coffees here (and in particular Black Magic)… AWESOME.

    And Magical

  52. Mitchell Carroll (verified owner)

    Used to live nearby and was able to find this at my local store. This is my favorite dark roast coffee.

    I ended up moving to the midwest and was so thankful that I can still get this coffee by shipping.

    The little thank yous I get everytime I order always brings a smile to my face.

  53. Roxanne Hall (verified owner)

    This coffee is so rich and is the pefect start to my morning! I have GERD and this coffee doesn’t cause any reflux for me. I love it!

  54. Mel (verified owner)

    My favorite so far. Smooth and low acidity is what I was looking for. Will definitely purchase more.

  55. Rebecca (verified owner)

    We have this coffee when we stay in Telluride and always miss it when we go home. This time I decided I was going to figure out what it was and order some for home. I’m so glad I did!! This coffee is so delicious. Smooth, not bitter. I immediately subscribed and am so happy I did!!

  56. Aileen (verified owner)

    Perfect strong coffee without the acidity. We are hooked

  57. David mckim

    Max the roast master and damian @ the counter servin’ up espresso shots ! You guys are Black magic gold !

  58. Phillip Gibbs (verified owner)

    We first had Black Magic when visiting Telluride a few years ago. We have now been ordering it regularly since then. We have traveled extensively – US and beyond – and have tried many coffees from other coffee makers. Nothing can compete for strong but smooth dark coffee taste. If you prefer a dark coffee, we also recommend Black Canyon and Cimmaron. But we always come back to Black Magic.
    Telluride Coffee Roasters = World Class.
