Medium-Dark (Full-City) roast is a step darker than a true medium. Beans are roasted at 420 oF (215 oC) for approximately 18 minutes, resulting in a dark-brown colored shell with a faint sheen of oil. This is a rich roast with chocolate and cinnamon flavors that also retains some of the floral elements of a lighter roast.
Full-City roasting gives coffee a robust, hearty flavor that embraces cream and sugar, but still tastes subtle, carmelly, and amazing when drunk black.
Estate grade beans are a mix of medium to large beans with a few surface blemishes.
