Dark Roast - Ground
The aroma alone will make you love it, and once you drink it, there is no return!
Freshly ground in the morning, this bold coffee really delivers. There are no harsh flavors in this brew. My wife doesn't usually drink dark roast coffee, but she drank it all when I wasn't looking, so now we need to order more!
I love your Dark roast. Tried it once and now I’m hooked. Just Bought some for myself & a friend for Valentine’s gift.
TL;DR Notes of dark chocolate and nutmeg with lingering finish of sultana raisin and lightly roasted almond with a round mouthfeel balance a mildly bitter initial shot
I am a milk drink coffee consumer. My preference trends towards a flat white with a light roast or espresso shots with a very fruit forward/non-bitter taste. My wife's taste run exactly the opposite: she wants a dark, bitter shot. To maintain marital bliss in the time of COVID I ordered the dark roast to taste over the Sunday NYT and a croissant.
The coffee came sealed under mild vacuum without a roasted-on date. I pulled a couple of shots for us and took some notes. It is on the less bitter side up front for dark roast. The existing bitterness slowly fades and is replaced (sequentially) by dark chocolate, hints of nutmeg, a slow sweetening of sultana raisins, closing with lightly roasted almonds. All of these flavors are fairly subtle and do not overpower on the palate and grow to fill the mouth with a pleasant, lingering roundness.
These flavors do not maintain a strong presence when used within a milk drink (at least the grass-fed whole milk that we use). While still pleasant I would not use this in espresso-milk drinks. I could see it being nice in a V60 pour over, though I did not have my setup readily available to try.
