Our Coffees

Locally Roasted in Nashville

Frothy Monkey Roasting Company began roasting our own coffee in the summer of 2014. Our coffee can be found at one of our 8 locations as well as some of our favorite places. We source specialty coffees from all over the world and are proud to have direct relationships with many of the farmers and their communities.


Our signature coffee is named for Frothy Monkey’s first coffee house, located on 12th Avenue South here in Nashville, TN. This coffee is roasted to be a versatile crowd pleaser, to be an exceptional coffee, no matter what brew method is used. 12South is our most popular coffee, and we’re so proud to say it tastes great as a regular cup of coffee or espresso in your cappuccino or even as cold brew. The blend is medium roasted, with a plush body, low acidity and plenty of sweetness. We taste chocolate, hazelnuts and red apples.


Brunch is our take on a traditional “breakfast coffee”. It’s a vibrant, juicy blend of a washed Ethiopia coffee, accompanied with other coffee components from Central America. We roast Brunch a bit lighter, to showcase its lively crispness, medium citrus acidity, and delicate body. This is a coffee that you will want to drink all day, every day. We taste bright citrus, almonds, and a pleasantly sweet black tea-like aftertaste.

Brute *formerly French

For our lovers of darker, more full-bodied roasts, Brute features notes of dark chocolate, burnt sugar, and macadamia nuts. Creamy and robust, with a minimal amount of acidity, this coffee is a bold, smooth beast, best to jump-start your day. We love how it tastes on regular old auto drip brewers, which is perfect for bleary-eyed mornings.

Howler Espresso

Brand new to our coffee line-up comes Howler, a meticulously crafted espresso blend that’s balanced and incredibly complementary to steamed milk. We sourced a buttery and fruity natural Brazil and paired it with a chocolatey and carmelly Central America coffee. Our roast profile for Howler is medium-dark and perfect for pulling smooth shots. Howler is well-rounded, creamy body, sweet, with low malic acidity reminiscent of plum tartness. We taste notes of almond butter, dark chocolate, red grape, and honey. Although it’s tailored for espresso, Howler still tastes even-keeled and delightful for all brew methods (it’s particularly delicious in your French Press).

Eventide (Decaf) *formerly Unwind

A wonderful decaf for relaxing in the evening and unwinding with great tasting coffee. Our decaf offering is sourced and decaffeinated by our friends at Swiss Water, who use a 100% chemical-free-process to remove caffeine from the raw, green coffee. We then roast it to order, typically roasting decaf a bit darker than our other coffees, in order to accentuate the deep, sweet notes inherent in the coffee. We taste baking chocolate, black cherry, and molasses. It’s great in your drip brewer or a pour-over, but also extremely pleasant as an espresso option.

Midshift (Half-Caff)

The best of both worlds, our half-caffeinated / half-decaf Midshift coffee offers a more low-key experience without sacrificing flavor and quality, for those who want just a little afternoon kick. We use a Swiss Water process South American decaf, blended with a bright and citrusy washed Ethiopia, making Midshift a balanced, clean coffee. We taste a lot of marshmallow and cocoa powder, with top notes of sweet tangerine and a graham cracker finish, which gives it a “s’mores and orange” flavor profile. We like it in a Chemex or a Kalita, but Midshift is great no matter how you brew it.

Cold Brew

A smooth, crisp blend of Guatemala & Ethiopia coffees designed with cold brewing in mind, but versatile enough for any brew method. Refreshing and bright, with a creamy, balanced body. We taste notes of Bartlett pear, milk chocolate, and hazelnut.
