How to Effectively Blend Different Roasts for an Exceptionally Bold Cup of Coffee

In my experiences dealing with a gourmet coffee enthusiast clientele, it has become increasingly apparent that in their quest to delight in a bold cup of coffee, many people will demand only dark roasted coffee regardless of the country of origin. I wanted to write this article from my own roasting experiences to shed a small light on how a bold cup of coffee can be achieved while keeping the coffee bean’s origin character intact.

It is vital to note that coffee beans from certain countries are inherently more suited for dark roasting that others. South American coffee beans tend to be grown at the highest altitudes, resulting in the toughest beans. Therefore, these beans would best be able to handle dark roasting. Indonesian coffees are grown at relatively high altitudes, although typically not as high as the South American beans, and therefore produce a slightly softer bean.

African coffees tend to be the least flexible when trying to produce a dark roast. But, the best examples, like the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe add a terrific zip to a properly proportioned blend.

This raises the question of how to best describe “bold”. It seems that most coffee enthusiasts define a bold coffee as one that leans more toward the roast character than the origin character, which is usually achieved in a dark roasted coffee. But, a bold coffee could also be defined as one that leaves a more lasting impression than a coffee that is not bold.
