One of the most difficult roasts to perform occurs when you take the best coffee to the darkest and oily side of coffee without over-roasting. This sharp and super caramel coffee is inspired by the tradition of Belgian chocolatiers. Single origin from Nicaragua. Makes a bold cup of coffee with deep dark chocolate notes with a caramel body. 

Origin: Nicaragua
Process: Washed
Brewing: Excellent for drip methods, especially French press. Makes a nice textured cup.
We Taste: Dark Chocolate, Caramel, Bold
