One of our signature offerings, Benchmark is cultivated to be equally delicious as brewed coffee as it is pulled as espresso. The components of its comforting flavor profile are selected for their ability to stand up to a deeper roast, without ever tasting over-roasted. With a more developed roast, we pull out deep notes of dark chocolate, molasses and toasted nuts.
We created Benchmark to satisfy those customers looking for a rich, smooth, balanced, and robust coffee. Designed to be amazing in milk, Benchmark performs wonderfully as a hearty cup of filter coffee or as the backbone of a lush cappuccino.
12oz bags may come in a different shade of blue temporarily due to supply shortages.
