The week is lagging, so we’re firing off a quick late week coffee post to jumpstart these last two days. The Sapbucket household has been trying to ease back on the number of cups of joe consumed each morning. But the Black River Roasters French Roast was so good that it lasted just over a week. Great for the tastebuds, not some much for our overall caffeine intake. Oh well, it was worth it. We brewed this a variety of ways (strong and stronger), drinking it black, with half and half, and milk. It never lost the essential french roast flavor. Sometimes the phrasing on coffee packaging is misleading at best, but with this coffee what you read is what you get: A full bodied blend with a smooth, rich finish. The coffee wasn’t bitter or overly roasted, just dark and smooth.
Verdict: Black River Roasters delivers a go-to French Roast
Roasted on Flynn Ave in Burlington (and also in NJ for the New York City area) we purchased this bag of beans at City Market. Check out Black River Roaster’s story (name changes, expansion and offerings), like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter @BR_Roasters
