Organic Coffee Blend

Eclipse Blend

lavender, sweet cocoa

$12.95

Clear

The Eclipse Blend is not only the best dark roast coffee we produce, it’s the only true dark roast we offer. Roasting past the second crack has produced a very low acidity, very chocolately bodied coffee. Unlike other dark roasts, there isn’t a very smokey taste, just the original inherent fruitiness of the beans.

Best Dark Roast Coffee: Eclipse Blend

The Eclipse Blend is not only the best dark roast coffee we produce, it’s the only true dark roast we offer. Roasting past the second crack (see below) is not something we typically do. However, we’re constantly experimenting to bring you unique and tasty coffee flavors. In doing so, we have produced a very low acidity, very chocolately bodied coffee. What makes this the best dark roast coffee is that, unlike other dark roasts, there isn’t a very smokey taste. This means you can still taste the inherent fruitiness in the beans.

To produce the best dark roast coffee, we have to remove the beans from the roaster at just the right time. Often, this means after the second crack. When roasted, coffee beans will audibly pop or crack, similarly to popcorn.  Depending on the roast and the coffee, the first crack will be quick and loud or slow and long. Shorter roasting times generally produce a brighter flavor profile, while longer and darker roasts tend to be less acidic and with more body. If the roast continues long enough, coffee will go through a second crack. This is slightly softer sounding than 1st crack and it’s usually when oils will begin to migrate from the inside of the bean to the outside. Identifying the second crack requires a trained ear; leave the beans in too long and they’ll begin to burn. Fortunately, our Eclipse Blend beans were roasted just right.

Because of it’s unique dark flavor, our Eclipse blend completely different from the rest of our coffees. You could even say it… eclipses them. This coffee is exclusively available online and in select Florida stores; you won’t find this coffee in our cafes. Order some today!

Thanks to our friends at IKAWA for helping us briefly explain the importance of the second crack.
