When used with a contrasting darker roast profile, as with our Dark Horse, the Santos Bourbon bean takes on a different guise entirely. Using a totally different approach to that of the lighter roast a more intense and aggressive roast profile results in a darker, brooding coffee. The acidity all but dissipates with the roast being guided along the way to prevent any residual bitterness in its’ final taste. The cup notes of a dark roast Brazilian Santos, in our hands, is a full bodied, intense, rich dark chocolate and cinnamon, almost marzipan, experience. Perfect for fans of a dark roast with the added pleasure of no lingering bitterness that is all to often prevalent in these roast profiles. This truly is a most versatile of coffees and is perfect for showcasing that single origin espresso can be enjoyed across a range of roasting approaches when roasted in the right hands.
