For the connoisseurs

Like all fineries in life, a brilliant cup of coffee requires time, knowledge, persistence and patience. For this reason, knowing the intricacies behind coffee species, grind size, brewing methods and roast flavour profiles are all part and parcel of the home barista’s journey.

The roasting process begins with maturation when the seeds are still green in colour with an earthy, grassy aroma. Surprisingly, coffee beans don’t smell like coffee beans at all during their infantile state, which is why roasting is so important. The development process allows the coffee to develop between 800 to 1000 different aroma compounds which make up the flavour.

This happens in three stages: Firstly, drying. Secondly, browning.  Thirdly, roasting.

The Dark Roast

Fancy yourself a bit of a dark horse? This beautiful dark roast comes from black, oily and noticeably bitter beans. Furthermore, the dark roast coffee bean profile is less acidic and has a heavier, smokier and stronger finish. Darker roasts can be found in Espresso, Viennese, Italian and French blends.

Our Dark Horse Blend is the most intense dark roasted bean profile in the MBB family. Experience the smokiness of bittersweet dark chocolate impressions with a tobacco-like aroma, hints of berries and a clear acidity. Available in 250g and 500g cylinders.
