This meter will appear in all of the coffee descriptions. Below you will also find written descriptions of each roast level and general descriptions of what each level does to the cup’s qualities.
Green Beans (Not Roasted)
These are beans that have not been roasted. This image is for your reference only. We do not sell green beans.
Light Roast (a.k.a. Cinnamon Roast)
City Plus Roast
Full City Roast
The lightest of the dark roasts producing a full-bodied cup with a strong aroma. The depth and sweetness of the beans are very well-developed but the individual characteristics of the beans are starting to become weaker. Oils are more well-formed on the bean’s surface.
This roast is a moderately dark roast, similar to a French Roast. The beans will have oils on their surface and the coffee will have much body, depth, and sweetness. At this point, you’re starting to taste the roast much more than the beans, but hey, who doesn’t like a nice, dark-roasted coffee?
