Dark and slightly smokey, this dark roast has just the right notes without being bitter.
The rich coffee character of our French Roast comes from roasting longer and hotter, which many beans can't handle. For our darkest roasts we select only the highest altitude beans from Africa and Central America. Higher altitude beans mature slowly and become denser, harder, and loaded with flavor. These bean attributes make them perfect for retaining the boldness and complexity we look for under the intense roasting environment.
