The Natural Dark Roast brings a classic, dark coffee flavor to your cup, with extra delicious notes from the Natural process. It is no wonder it’s one of our best selling roasts!
To make Natural Coffee, ripe coffee cherries are picked off the trees and then sent straight to the drying facilities. Because of this, the coffee beans are still inside the fruity layer while they reach their optimal moisture level, which means a lot more flavor.
Cupping Notes: Fruity, winey taste with notes of cherry, strawberry, passion fruit, and hibiscus. Also, a spiciness of cinnamon, cloves, and cedar. Finished with a heavy body and tones of cocoa and molasses. Delicious for a pour-over as well as espresso!
For a specific amount of time, the cherries dry, and once they reach the optimal moisture level, they go to the dry mill. There, the cherries are hulled, and the green beans sorted by size, quality and density. Finally, we send the beans to the roastery for the last step.
To get the best balance of flavor from these beans, we use a roasting profile that we created specifically for beans processed naturally. We find that the flavors of Natural coffee beans shine best in our dark roast. Since this process adds such specific and strong notes to the coffee, we absolutely recommend you give it a try!
