Intensely French. Without the caffeine. We start with a delicious, delightful Costa Rican coffee, then dark roast it in the tradition of the famous French style. You’ll taste Caramelized sugars, a hint of chocolate and a deeply smoky flavor that attests to the heat of the roast characterize this intensely flavorful coffee.
Profile: Velvety body, caramel like aroma, earthy flavor and a bittersweet finish. The French Roast captures a full range of origin characteristics from crisp and bright to syrupy, earthy and full bodied. Range of roast degrees also lends more complexity and versatility to the blend.
Place: Costa Rica, Guatemala, Papua New Guinea, Sumatra
People: Our experienced roasters prepare this blend to work well as a drip coffee and provide a balanced profile that lends well to lattes, cappuccinos, or as a straight shot.
Process: Each origin coffee is carefully roasted individually to its optimum level and then combined in the right proportion to create the final blend. There are a total of four coffees, one of which is roasted at two levels, resulting in five total blends.
Pairing: Walnuts, caramel, chocolate, brownies, chocolate croissants.
