Roast Descriptions

Have you ever wondered what the differences are between a dark and medium roast… well we have the answers!


Medium Roast

We sell most of our coffees as medium roast for several reasons.  One being that much like wine each coffee region and estate has their own characteristics.  With a medium roast, you are able to taste the different characteristics of the coffees we offer that create a distinctive flavor.


Dark Roast

This is where the coffees are not only a darker color but they are also shiny on the outside of the bean.  This is due to the fact that as you roast coffee darker the oils that are in the coffee bean come to the surface of the bean.  This tends to be a smokier tasting coffee.


Black & Tan

This is a 50/50 combination of the two above roasts.  This means that you are able to get the characteristics of the medium roast along with the smokiness from the dark.  It tends to have a rich body and is perfect for satisfying people who are enjoy one or the other.
