Our Gourmet Viennese coffee is expertly blended and dark roasted to produce a wonderful and complex flavor which is highly acidic. Viennese coffee has a woodsy, smokey taste. Vienna coffee, is characterized as a slightly deeper color/ darker roast than American Roast/lighter roast. The darker roast leaves small spots of oil on the bean’s surface. The oil, which comes from within the coffee bean, is brought to the surface by the prolonged roasting time. The oil from the bean is important in the flavor of brewed coffee at higher roast levels. With greater presence of oil this gives dark roasted coffee its distinguishable taste. If you enjoy dark roasted coffee this is a great choice.
