Medium-Dark Roast Coffees - Seven Delicious Choices

Continuing our exploration of coffee roasts, this week we're discovering Medium-Dark Roasts.

Medium-dark roasts are roasted to temperatures between 435 and 445 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the beginning of the second crack stage. At this point, no natural flavors are left behind and all the flavors are due to the roasting process. Generally, the flavors that a medium-dark roast imparts are bittersweet dark chocolate, porter beer, caramel, and rich vanilla. In some instances, a slight spiciness or a hint of smokiness is evident along with the heavy body and low acidity.

Our seven medium-dark roast coffees are all tasty choices to start your mornings or to end your day.
