My name is Marc, and I love coffee. I've been blogging about coffee for nine years, and making better and better coffee at home as a result. It's been my dream to become a coffee roaster, and I'm so excited to announce that the Make Good Coffee Co. roastery is now open in San Diego, California, and shipping throughout the United States.
In the months and years to come, I'll be providing amazing coffees not only to San Diego, but to coffee lovers all over the world right here on MakeGoodCoffee.com.
Just starting to learn about coffee? Check out my introduction to making coffee to dive into your love affair with coffee.
When I first started roasting, I had three coffees: a medium roast, a dark roast, and a premium coffee. I wanted to capture as many coffee preferences as I could with a limited amount of coffees to start.
My philosophy in developing the roast profile of a dark roast coffee was to give the coffee drinker the smoky flavor and full body of a dark roast, without the burnt and bitter flavor that so often accompanies a dark roasted coffee.
That same philosophy is behind our latest offering for the dark roast afficionado…our new Excelso Dark coffee. The key is in the care that goes into attaining the full body and smoky flavor, while properly developing the inner bean and not burning its exterior.
This very versatile Colombia bean features a full body and berry sweetness when roasted medium. When roasted dark, the body becomes even fuller, and the berry sweetness turns into an almost red wine flavor.
We ship by USPS Flat Rate Padded Envelope, so I recommend ordering two bags of coffee (two Excelso Darks, or an Excelso Dark and a different coffee) so that flat rate shipping fee is spread over two bags instead of just one.
If you like dark roasted coffees, here is one with a hint of lively acidity, a sweetness uncharacteristic of dark roasts, and a smoky flavor that isn’t burnt or bitter.
If you don’t like dark roasted coffees, it might be because you haven’t tried this one!
