Here at Dark Fluid we enjoy the huge variety found in coffees from all over the world and we like to select and roast coffee in a way that brings out the unique characteristics of the particular bean.
There is no such thing as espresso roast. We take pains to find beans that suit their purpose, we do not try and roast them into espresso, rather we offer you beans that were destined for espresso, thanks to the great work done by our farming friends. If we found some sweet orange flavours in a tasting and that inspired us to buy the coffee we will test roast many batches to make sure your coffee delivers the same highlights.
Our much lauded Schrodingers espresso blend has been the result of a long interaction with our closest customers. For that we thank you. Sometimes it's all too easy to get lost in the world of personal favourites and competition espresso so we try to keep our feet on the ground with this comforting and easy going blend. We use it at the stall and at all our events. Feedback is the lifeblood of Dark Fluid, please keep it coming.
As much as we would like to talk about the importance of perfect roast profiles and roaster technology the real work is done a long time before we get our hands on the coffee. The harvesting, processing and grading of the green beans at source has the biggest outcome on the eventual taste. That is why we work hard along with our bean suppliers to find you a pick of the best of the current crops.
We roast them carefully on a small, customised drum roaster. We deliver them to you fresh from the roaster to avoid the need for us to spend marketing millions convincing you that foil and nitrogen save the world. Honestly, some of the supermarkets can afford to sell roasted beans cheaper than we can source decent green beans.
Seriously, even if not from us, buy freshly roasted coffee. This is the single biggest improvement you can make to your coffee routine.
