“I love my coffee…Strong”

“Strong coffee” can mean several things…dark color, a robust aroma or a smooth yet full body and flavor.

Dark color:

French Roast- The darkest of the roasts, offering you an intense cup with a rich lingering flavor. (Organic French Roast)

Marrakech- dark coffees sourced from western Morocco roasted to velvety standards that create a complex hearty cup with a spicy aftertaste.

Kenya- A dark roast assuring a sharp acidity, a stoic solid body and smooth winy penetrating flavor. (Characterized: Winey/Bold Body/High Acidity).

Robust aroma:

Guatamala- Aromatic and fragrant with a medium body. Offering you a unique smoky flavor is well balanced with the “spicy twist”. (Characterized: Winey/Light Body/High Acidity) – Organic Guatamalan.

Smooth & Full:

Sumatra- Expect a low-key acidity and a heavy, almost syrupy, body with a concentrated and complex flavor. (Characterized: Smooth/Heavy Body/Low Acidity) – Available in Dark Roast, Organic, and Medium Roast.
