A robust, full-bodied blend with dark spices and hickory flavors.
The term "French Roast" has been being misused by the American coffee consumer at large for the past decade. While it used to mean a slightly darker roast, the term has lately come to define burnt, oily coffee. We at Black River Roasters intend to take back the "real French Roast!"
A French Roast should be a bit darker than a full city roast, but not burnt or bitter. We offer a full-bodied cup that is neither! It is, however, bold enough to stand on its own, with a dynamic character and a rich finish.
Caffeine fans, don't be fooled by a darker roast. They have less caffeine than their lighter-roasted counterparts. Caffeine is a chemical which is roasted out of the coffee bean, and the longer its roasted the more the caffeine dissipates. If it's caffeine you're looking for, head on over to our Breakfast Blend.
