While many large commercial roasters make dark roasting their norm, we feel strongly that only a handful of coffees are improved by roasting dark. The darker the roast the more any characteristic bean flavors (and fruity acids) are lessened. Body drops away and bittersweet & pungent flavors dominate on the darker end of the roasting scale.
At Venia Coffee, our dark roasts are more likely classified as Medium-Dark roasts. Because of the loss of body and brightness when roasting dark, we typically only start with coffees beans that are naturally full bodied and bright to ensure a rich and flavorful cup. As a broad generalization, we feel the "Big Classics" like Colombian, Guatemalan and washed Brazilian coffees do well roasted medium-dark.
The surface of the beans usually have spots or patches of oil.
Common names for our Medium-Dark roasts are: Full City Plus, "Espresso" Roast, French Roast (45-40 on the agron scale)

Our signature espresso blend. As coffee is an agricultural crop, the coffees that go into Square Peg change throughout the year, but our goal is always the same: to bring you a beautifully sweet and balanced espresso that not only blends well with milk, but is also outstanding as a straight espresso shot.
