Roasted deep and dark, this coffee offers notes of dark chocolate, striking caramelized sugars and a touch of bittersweet smoke from the roast profile.
About Legend Blend of Guatemala
This beloved dark roast blend has its own story, as most legends do. Once upon a time, it wore the label “French Roast,” but as year followed year, it became a lighter roast: more Vienna than French. Plus, with Central and South American coffees pairing up, the tune had changed in more than roast level. Thus, in due season, it became One Village Coffee’s Legend blend.
How do they get all that flavor, one might ask? As coffee roasts thru the medium phase and into the dark realm, a bunch of things happen. One, there’s a ton of smoke, (which is fun to watch exit the chimney, and contrary to what neighbors might say, it smells great). Flavorwise the sugars in the beans are going from “Hey, I just melted and I taste like raw sugar” to “Hey, I’m starting to burn a little and taste like caramel” to “Hey, I’m burning up a little more now, and I’m tasting bittersweet but balanced.” That third spot is the bullseye for Legend. Roasted flavor is just right, wrapped in sweetness to balance it out. Stuff of legends.

had this to say:
"This is one for the dark roast lover. Notes of baker's cocoa, toffee and smoke. Excellent for cream and sugar or to appreciate roasty notes. To me, the quintessential camping coffee. "
One Village Coffee
One Village Coffee was born of an encounter. The Hackman family traveled around the world meeting people who were making a difference in their communities, and were inspired by their courage, joy, and resilience. They dreamed of creating a business that captured their communal power. So, in 2007, they launched One Village Coffee to connect roasters, growers, and you (faithful coffee drinkers) through great coffee and a dedication to making an impact - together. This is why they became a founding B Corp and why they joined forces with farmers to co-own One Village Coffee in 2018.
"We Are One Village:
As a founding Certified B Corporation and specialty coffee roaster, One Village Coffee has connected roasters, growers, and coffee drinkers since 2007. Packed in our compostable bag, our offerings range from light to dark roasted coffees, focusing on balance and sweetness (or whatever you taste, because let's be honest, it's all personally relative). We are here to learn, discover coffee with you, and not take ourselves too seriously."
As a family business, One Village Coffee’s thirteen-person team is approachable and humble. Whether they’re helping Honduran farmers build beehives, teaching coffee folk everything from brewing methods to cafe design, or giving back to their local community by providing 100,000 homeless Philadelphians with coffee every year, they create community, one cup at a time.
