In search of something slightly more traditional, with a darker, more chocolatey profile? Our simple approach is to blend two beans that are enhanced by darker roasts, putting them together to create a balance of both sweetness and complexity. With its dark and intense cup, full of complexity and with lots of spice and chocolate, this is not your run of the mill, charred French Roast.
“A chocolaty fair-trade/organic blend with spice-toned florals animating a balanced, resonantly medium-dark roasted cup.”

Perhaps the simplest and most well known of all the manual brew methods, the French Press is known for making a thick cup with great body. When used properly, the press can also present plenty of sweet and fruity notes.
The art of coffee blending, sometimes unfairly maligned by single origin enthusiasts, has been around since the earliest days of coffee trading. The intent of a perfect coffee blend is to piece together traits of different varietals, processes, and roast profiles to develop a cup with a specific set of attributes. For example, our Funky Chicken blend is designed to suit those coffee drinkers who are interested in a slightly bolder cup of coffee, but don't want the roasty notes of a dark roast, and prefer a sweet and balanced finish. This is achieved through what is known as a "post-roast" blend, meaning 3 coffees are roasted to 3 profiles and then blended together at specific ratios. In contrast, the Floyd Farmhouse is a "pre-roast" blend (coffees are blended in green form, then roasted to the same profile) and designed to have a fruit forward, sweet, and milder taste profile. The Old Crow (post-roast blend) is designed to taste great as espresso, and the 4&20 (pre-roast blend) is our darkest blend offering.
