Mad Scientist Silk Coffee was invented because we wanted to figure out a way to reproduce the smooth taste of cold brew in a faster and more convenient way. Our Silk coffees start with high quality freshly roasted beans from our friends at Good Sense Coffee that are ground and buffered with safe, food grade minerals to produce a less acidic and smoother tasting brew. Mad Scientist Silk Coffee is available in bags or single serve Pods in regular, decaf, and a higher caffeine Polonium blend.
We are scientist on a mission to discover new ways formulating and preparing coffee because coffee is science! Mad Scientist Coffee was inspired by our love for God, people, science and excellent coffee. (Romans 1:20)
Mad Scientist Coffee was started by Len Winneroski who has been a research scientist for over 34 years. His curiosity over the origin of coffee one morning during his morning devotions led to the purchase of this roaster where he learned how to roast coffee in his basement.
As Len roasted different coffees from around the world, his curiosity led him to start experimenting with new coffee formulations. Our lower acid, less bitter Silk Coffee is one of those new discoveries. Stay tuned for more coffee creations because we are just getting started!
Coffee has led many amazing friendships and partnerships over the years and we hope to add you to our emerging story! Our coffees are roasted and formulated by the excellent people at Good Sense Coffee in South Lyon, Michigan. Check out their incredible coffees too!
Mad Scientist Coffee, LLC would like to honor the hero scientists of the past who saw what nobody else saw, and then worked relentlessly to turn their hypotheses or thought experiments into reality. Coffee is an important tool that most scientists use every day. Coffee helps us focus and stay more alert. It keeps us energized to face the fearful unknown. It helps us push through the constant stream of failures as we test our hypotheses. And finally, it gives us the stamina to brush the dust off when we stumble, so that we can seize the opportunities that eventually present themselves if we are persistent and don’t give up.
The stunning cover art for our website, T-shirts, and color morphing mugs is original art that was provided to Mad Scientist Coffee from Ella Marushchenko, a very accomplished scientific illustrator and Mad Scientist Coffee friend. The image depicts a caffeine molecule blocking an adenosine A2A receptor in the brain. Adenosine builds up in our brain throughout the day, and when it binds with the adenosine A2A receptor, it makes us sleepy. Coffee contains caffeine which is like a soccer goalie, it blocks the ability of adenosine to bind with the adenosine A2A binding site. You can see more of Ella's amazing work on her Instagram.
