“A dark roast that secedes where others fail.” This coffee was created and is roasted in the independent spirit of the Florida Keys and named after the historic events of 1982. 

The unofficial “Conch Republic” was born on April 23, 1982, in response to an ongoing Border Patrol blockade of US 1. After repeated complaints went unanswered, a group of Key West's citizens organized a mock succession in protest. Key West's Mayor Dennis Wardlow was proclaimed prime minister of a new republic (the Conch Republic), which immediately declared war against the United States (symbolically breaking a loaf of stale Cuban bread over the head of a man dressed in a naval uniform). After just one minute, they quickly surrendered (to the man in the uniform) and then applied for one billion dollars in foreign aid.
The stunt worked! The roadblock was quietly removed, and the historic Conch Republic was born (no foreign aid was ever received). The name stuck and has been embraced up and down the Keys - including our Conch Republic roast, which "secedes where other dark roasts fail."

Love Baby’s Coffee-Conch Republic Coffee

Conch Republic Coffee is one of our favorite coffees at Baby’s! This dark roast coffee has a smooth flavor & brews well in my coffee pot or individual Keurig! We spend our winters in the Florida Keys & always make a stop at Baby’s for enough coffee to last us through February.❤️☕️

Got the beans, grind fresh every morning, some of the best coffee I’ve ever had. Strong flavor with just the right bite. This is a winner!
