Come to the dark side. This Brazilian coffee from the Minas Gerais region has been taken to a darker roast to produce a deep, nutty, low acidity all day drink. We've roasted out any bitterness to this bean so it can be enjoyed in any brew method without fear of the sharp after taste a dark roast can bring if left in unskilled hands. Expect a long nutty flavour with a chocolatey mouthfeel and a stronger, fuller finish than our lighter roasts with a comforting, thick body. Perfect for black coffee wake up calls or a rich, deep, mellow base for milk drinks.
