Gene Hicks' Coffee

14295 Canadian Border Road Ely, MN 55731

The Jasper Company Bakeshop proudly serves Gene Hicks' Gourmet Coffees. As a fishing guide in northern Minnesota, Gene Hicks knew how important a good cup of coffee is in the morning and after a day on the water. After years of experimenting, Gene has developed nine blends each being a rich, full bodied coffee that is low in acidity and stomach friendly. Gene Hicks coffee uses only the finest Arabica beans from Costa Rica, Columbia, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Kenya, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and Tanzania.

His coffee is slow roasted in the "northern German method" - at the end of the roast the valves are closed and the beans are smoked, forcing the flavors and aromas released from the beans during the roast back into the coffee while the beans are still hot. The coffee beans are then air-cooled resulting in a completely rounded full bodied cup of coffee that is 100% gluten free.

The following blends are served at The Jasper Company Bakeshop and are available for sale in both ground and whole bean:

  • Signature Coffee
  • Good Morning Blend
  • Fishing Blend
  • Campfire Blend
  • Canoe Blend
  • Big Fat Espresso
  • Green Horizons (Fair Trade Certified)
  • Sunset Blend (97% caffeine free)
  • Northern Lite Blend (50% caffeine free)
