Organic Peruvian French Roast Coffee, 5lb whole bean

French Roast

Distinct from our other French roasts, this Peruvian coffee is bold and spicy with tasting notes of mesquite, cherry, and chocolate. Although it flirts with a smoky mesquite flavor it leaves only creamy chocolate flavors behind in the aftertaste. No added flavoring. 2 Pack contains two 5lb bags of coffee (10lbs total).

An interdependent network of small farms

The region where Cooperativa Norandino members grow coffee is in the highlands of northwest Peru on the western slopes of the Andes Mountains. The co-op is made up of an association of 90 grassroots organizations of farmers. The average size farmed by each family is 1.5 hectares (about 3.7 acres). On these small plots, farmers are able to cultivate coffee without damaging the nearby forest and fruit species that serve as shade trees to the coffee and supply an important part of the families’ diets.

What do our roast names mean?

At our solar-powered roastery in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts, our worker-owner team batch roasts and conducts production cuppings daily to bring out the best characteristics in each harvest. With four primary roast levels, we think there’s a favorite here for everyone.

Medium Roast: expect the unique citrus, nutty, fruity, or floral notes of each coffee to shine through.

Full City Roast: you’ll get a bit more of the caramel flavor that comes from the roasting process.

Vienna Roast: starts to bring the smoky aroma and smooth and rich body of a darker roast.

French Roast: with the natural oils fully expressed, it’s an intensely dark and smoky experience akin to dark chocolate.
