Now with Kenya Estate back in the blend, the competition is heavy but this has been our signature and #1 selling blend for more than 25 years. Enjoy this strong and balanced blend with its snappy finish. Great aroma and lingering finish. Intense coffee with a strong character. Aromatic with a delicious sharp bite. When we roast to darker levels, it’s important to really coax out the full profile of each bean each step of the way. It’s easy to turn up the heat, but a patient Roastmaster can bring out the caramel tones and deep roast flavours that can easily be lost due to scorching at too high a temperature. The extreme pressure inside the bean created by the heat from roasting causes bean expansion. In turn this releases part of the essential oils and caffeine, produces carbonization of their sugars thereby creating smoky and spicy flavour notes.
