It’s time again for Discovery Channel’s annual Shark Week! For one July week every year since 1988, this event has been a solid seven days of non-stop shark related videos. SO INTENSE. We get pretty pumped up, so all week long we focus on our amazing Shark Bite Espresso.
So what does a coffee store have in common with Shark Week? Would you believe that we are not like other coffee stores? (Wink, wink!) Cupper’s has a long history of being one of the most unconventional and fun businesses in the universe. Check out this video, unearthed from Cupper’s ancient archives of 2017. It’s just in case you needed proof that we’ve always been strange!
We're Serving Shark Bite Espresso
Okay, hang on for this… this is something we have NEVER done before at Cupper’s! All week we are replacing our Rocket Brand Espresso in store with our Shark Bite Espresso. If you have always wanted to try this amazing fruity coffee but never have, here’s your chance!
Want your latte to circle you? How about seeing a toothy grin in your Caramel Macchiato? Or want an Iced Americano that bites you back? We can do it all for you. Get ready to have your fins knocked off! Try any of the espresso drinks on our drink menu made with Shark Bite Espresso.
Don’t be afraid of the name, though. Shark Bite Espresso is good as drip, French press or espresso coffee. You name it, this espresso can do it. Don’t miss out on trying this one with your favourite brewer.
As an espresso, Shark Bite balances nuttiness and fruit in its aroma. It has a clean, crisp, and bright blend of saskatoon berry. It is the “lightest” espresso that we offer, as it is a 100% medium-roast blend. Ba dun, ba dun. Dun dun dun! It’s so good… you’re gonna need a bigger cup.

The Origin of Shark Bite Espresso
Did you know? The name of our Shark Bite Espresso used to be ‘Dirt Bag Espresso’?
Josh, our master roaster, has an interesting backstory about the origin of this coffee.
“As an avid outdoorsy fly-fisher, I used to live as cheaply as I could. So I could afford to do exactly what I wanted to do. It’s how I wanted to live my life. The term “dirt bag” is often used in groups like the climbing, mountain biking, and surfing communities. It refers to those who just want to live that lifestyle and pursue their passion. I created this blend specifically for enjoying in a Bialetti (as it’s suitable for that type of stuff), and to reflect that time in my life.”
