5-Star - Dark Roast Blend

If you love dark roast coffee almost as much as you love our Great Country, then you will be head over heels for our 5-Star Dark Roast Blend. A beautiful marriage between deep roasted South American and African Coffees offers delicious notes of bittersweet chocolate and hints of dried fruits with a warm comforting aroma. While originally developed as an espresso blend we were delighted to find it made a superb drip coffee that could be evenly matched in any 5-star restaurant.


 

Flavored on a Medium Roast Nicaragua Bean from our Finca - Alas de Dios in Jinotega, Nicaragua.

It would be our pleasure to grind your beans to a drip brew grind setting (about a medium grind and consistency is about that of regular sand). However, We strongly recommend you purchase a grinder to grind just the necessary amount of beans that you will need for preparing your coffee. You will experience a remarkable difference in taste, aroma, and flavor once you start grinding your own beans!

You do not need anything fancy if you are just getting started in experiencing better and more flavorful coffee. But, you should buy whole beans since ground coffee can stale within a few days from opening the package. As a matter of fact, a $10 spice grinder (thoroughly clean or buy a new one- you do not want coriander in your single origin!) will do in a pinch if you shake it up and down as the blades are spinning (you want the consistency to be about that of regular sand).  Once you experience the flavor benefits of grinding your own coffee, you may want to invest in an inexpensive flat burr grinder, or even splurge a bit more for a conical burr grinder. We promise grinding your own coffee will elevate your coffee drinking pleasure to new heights of freshness and flavor.
