French Medium Roast

Our French Medium is one of our more popular belnds. It is a very dark and oily bean, but not as bitter as our Italian High Roast
Best served through espresso although does well through cafetiere/filter for those who enjoy dark oily coffees.
n.b Some 'Bean to Cup' machines may be designed in a way that oiler beans are not recommended for use, please check machine manuals before using.

This is a delicious coffee roasted to perfection for espresso. It leaves a lasting deep coffee taste with no bitterness. Please don't taint it by adding unnecessary fat or other rubbish - it's perfect on its own from the thick crema to the last drop. Temperamental to get a consistent grind like most oily beans but that adds to the pleasure of experimenting with different grind amounts and grades - I get excellent results with a hand grinder.
The medium french roast is the best French Roast i've had, anywhere; and i live between the UK and France. Simply stunning
Our long-held favourite but this particular tranche / batch / lot seems to have a somewhat BITTER after-taste which is a surprising novelty and not exactly welcome. Nevertheless, I will continue to order this faithful old friend for its richness, fullness, generosity and finesse and assume it just had an off-day.
I love this coffee - it is not as powerful as some, but full of flavour.
