Flavor Notes: Rich Dark Chocolate, Black Pepper
Available in three different roast profiles. The Full City Roast is a full bodied coffee, with notes of milk chocolate, and malt, that is just a little bit citrusy. The French Roast has a round body with darker chocolate notes, and a hint of black pepper. Then for those who want to go one step darker, we also offer this coffee as an Espresso Roast, the darkest in our dark roast repertoire. Very dark, tarry, and heavy-bodied.
The Comsa Cooperative, founded in 2001, grants liberty in individual farmers to experiment with their own organic practices, milling, and drying areas, to ensure quality control of their crops.
Depending on origin, growing region, and style of preparation, every coffee carries a unique set of physical and flavor characteristics, affected by such factors as longitude and latitude, amount of sun, shade, rainfall, cloud cover, soil content, nitrogen and minerals, and other factors.
As roasters, our job is to recognize and identify for our guests those special flavor characteristics that define a particular coffee, and determine the roasting methodology that will enhance these very special flavors.
Coffee Exchange offers 5 distinct roasts. Each coffee is available in the roast(s) that suits its finest characteristics.
American Roast: Light brown in color with a dry surface, this roast is characterized by a light body and a bright, piquant flavor.
Full City Roast: A little darker, this roast creates a rich, sweet, full-bodied and complex cup.
Vienna Roast: Even darker, this roast brings the ambrosial coffee oils to the surface of the bean and brews a savory, pleasantly bittersweet cup.
French Roast: This roast results in a dark, oily bean with a bold flavor and a heady aroma.
Espresso Roast: As dark as possible in pursuit of a densely flavored cup.
