French Roast

The most popular of our French Roasts, which is at the midpoint of our dark roast range.  Made with Mexican Chiapas, which is light bodied with good acidity. Darker roasting adds a bittersweet spiciness. Smooth enough to be enjoyed as a continental cup, brewed conventionally, but also excellent brewed for espresso. Tasting Notes:  Caramelized sugar, citrus, dark chocolate, clove
