Brewing instructions
Description

Continental Coffee is a dark-roasted delight. Regardless of whether you like full English breakfasts or pastries, this beverage makes for an excellent start to the day. When brewed, it boasts a heavy aroma and a strong, full-bodied taste with bittersweet notes.

We create it using the latest state-of-the-art Neuhaus Neotec fluidised air-bed system, which primarily uses convection heat transfer to roast the Arabica Beans.

Another reason to choose this Coffee is the fact that it contains a significant amount of caffeine (approximately 100mg per 8oz cup). Not only will you be getting a delicious brew first thing in the morning, then, but also an extra kick of energy!

Some people even theorise that it comes with health benefits. All we know is that we pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory.

What is Dark Roasted Coffee

Arabica or Robusta, Coffee Beans require roasting to taste like the morning brew we know and love. Before this takes place, they’re green, soft, spongy when bitten, and smell grassy.

The flavour at this point is locked within the Beans. Roasting, therefore, brings about the chemical change needed to get the most out of your cuppa. But how, exactly, does it work?

Coffee Beans pop, crack and expand when subjected to heats between 350°F – 400°F, a phenomenon known as the “first crack.” This is where lighter roasts come about, which tend to have an earthy, grainy acidic taste.

Continental Coffee and other Dark Roasted Coffees, however, are the product of heats between 465°F–485°F. This coincides with the end of the second crack - sometimes beyond.

Beverages such as these often taste bitter, smokey and even, at times, slightly burnt with notes reminiscent of charcoal.

Coffee connoisseurs, in particular, have a reputation for loving Dark Roasts, which lack the acidity of their lighter counterparts. They’re also shinier and oilier on the surface while being, perhaps unsurprisingly, darker in colour. Find out for yourself with our Continental Coffee!

Origin of Continental Coffee: Brazil (South America) and Honduras (Central America).

  4. This coffee came as a sample amongst the gift selection made up for me by the company. It’s a great way to sample new tastes that you might never otherwise experience. I love the deep colour of this coffee and it is rich in flavour and almost oily ( in a very pleasant way ).
