This inviting coffee offers notes of dark chocolate, striking caramelized sugars, and a touch of bittersweet smoke from the deep roast profile. Aromas channel cinnamon toffee apples with a side of dark chocolate. Acidity is sweet and soft, with a comforting caramelized body.
About 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.
One Village Coffee
One Village Coffee was born of an encounter. That may sound a bit dramatic, but when owners Steve and Lois Hackman traveled to Africa and Honduras in the early 2000’s, what they saw captivated their hearts: a community of people working together to better themselves and those around them. “Coffee, which is deeply tied to the earth and has amazing powers to connect people, quickly became a way for us to create our own village.” And in 2007 they did exactly that. First in the Hackman’s basement in small-town Souderton, Pennsylvania, where they roasted coffee on a 5-pound roaster, then in their garage. When they outgrew the garage in 2009, they moved down the road a couple of miles to their current facility.
“Our mission since 2007 has been to connect growers, roasters, and coffee drinkers through our quality coffee and commitment to stewardship. We recognize that One Village Coffee would not exist without the people that drink our coffee, and the people that grow it. We want to honor the farmers and the whole supply chain by roasting the most delicious coffee we can.”
A family business, One Village Coffee’s ten-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.
