French Roast refers to a dark roasting style that is surprisingly difficult to do well. We currently use a Guatemalan bean from the farm Finca Santa Anita. This bean serves delicious as a French Roast, as it keeps its regional characteristics while still being able to take a lot of heat. This coffee has a slight, pleasant acidity and notes of sweet, dark cocoa.
TASTING NOTES: Full-bodied and really rich – our darkest roast
BREWING HIGHLIGHTS: Syphon brings out the sweet tannic and currant flavors. Pour over reminds us of sweet barbecue. The Clever makes a toasty and sweet cup.
