Dark Inc – Organic Blend – Roasted Coffee
Dark Inc is Quest’s signature certified organic medium-dark roast coffee bringing some bite and distinct strength from a blend of carefully selected regions. If you like coffee that tastes like toasted nuts, dark chocolate, spices and caramel this is the blend for you.
People often associate dark roasted coffee with bitter taste. This was historically true as previously coffee roasters did actually roast coffee to an extent that it was burnt. Now, with new updated rosters and processes it is possible to have rich and smooth medium-dark coffee by roasting to just before second crack.
Why is it stronger in taste, you ask? Let us explain with an example. Think of condensed milk. It is continuously stewed and boiled making the water evaporate, leaving behind stronger milk solids. In a similar way coffee beans, when roasted to a higher temperature, release more of the gases stored within them and impart a stronger taste to the coffee.
At Quest, unlike single origins which often showcase singular tasting notes, Dark Inc combines the best elements of multiple regions to make a delicious and smooth stronger tasting coffee.
Dark Inc won the bronze medal in the Alternative milk category of the Golden Bean awards held in 2021. The blend is developed for coffee lovers who drink their coffee with milk alternatives, as the darker roast lowers the acidity and means less chance of curdling especially for soy milk. If you’re a coffee lover who enjoys a flavour that lingers longer and reminds you why you love getting up in the morning, you should definitely give these beans a try.
