Dive into Dark Roast Coffee
Dark roast contains the traditional characteristics of coffee: a robust scent, a flavor that is smooth and chocolaty with just the adequate level of bitterness. Perfect for warming up on a cool morning or drinking cup after cup at a café.
Due to the abundance of surface oil, dark roast bodies are frequently quite deep. Dark roast coffee has a rather smooth, low-acid flavor that is rich and well-balanced.
Dark roast is often what you need if you want a strong cup of coffee. The floral/fruity flavor of light roast is seen by coffee drinkers as being "weaker" than the dark roast's heavy body and delicious, chocolaty fragrance.
Although a dark roast coffee may have greater flavor notes, the "strength" of the coffee actually depends more on how concentrated or in what ratio you brew it.
An oily surface on a bean indicates a well-developed roast, and oils produce a powerful, lingering scent. After being brewed, the surface oils adhere to your taste buds and give the coffee a richer flavor. A coffee bean, however, was probably over-roasted if it is extremely oily.
The most flexible coffee to brew is dark roast. A solid, uniform roast gives it a consistent flavor, and its ability to handle heat and pressure makes it ideal for making espresso. As a drip coffee, pour-over coffee, or espresso, dark roast coffee is roasted to taste amazing.

Nothing compares to a hot cup of freshly made dark roast coffee. We recommend brewing dark roast both hot and iced because it tastes great both ways. Due to the deep earthy, nutty, and chocolate flavors that are brought out beautifully in the lengthy, cold-water brewing process, it provides a very rich cold brew.
