Meet Legend Blend
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.
