Grade: Strictly Hard Bean
Characteristics: a soulful smoky taste with a hint of licorice
Roast Scale: 10 out of 10 in darkness
This maybe the darkest roasted coffee in the US or even the world! The roast room is thick with smoke when our cast iron roasting machine billows as we craft our Old Grandpa! Blend. We select the densest bean of the year that can withstand the heat without breaking – this is usually a strictly hard bean grade from Central America. This roast is brought to the limit of darkness – many times causing fires in our roaster! The results are worth the risk…we have crafted a coffee so soulful, with a deep smoky, licorice flavor – it has been compared to a fine whiskey. If you are an extreme dark roast lover – go no further you have found the ultimate!
