raw green bean Green coffee is raw Roast prior to consumption

This bold organic coffee blend brings out the best of African and Asian coffee beans. African coffees are usually described as complex, fruity and floral. These are stronger, fragrant-rich, and full-bodied flavored beans. Asian coffees tend to be earthier and darker than most other regional blends. These coffees tend to be smooth, dense, and exotic with dark chocolate, bold nuttiness, and subtle earthy tones.

We think this coffee is best as a dark roast, but your taste will be the final decider! Let us know how you roasted this variety in the product reviews.

Roast it lighter and enjoy a creamy chocolate espresso drink with a dominant nutty taste, or take it to the limit and get the bittersweet end of the spectrum. Very versatile and quite complex.

This is our all time favorite coffee. We roast it dark, into second crack and full Coast on the Gene Cafe Roaster. I’m not one to define flavors in detail, but we get a nice smooth flavor with some chocolate notes. We use it either coarse grind for pour overs and it makes great shots for a latte.

Dear BBOrganic I love/hate you. I roast BB just past FC. Drink this just before you anticipate a street brawl. It is a straight up kick in the teeth. Either drink it black, the way it should be done or go home with your tail between your legs ;) We may be friends again someday. Moka Pot or Pour Over.

Got this one as part of the Blends sampler pack and generally prefer a medium roast. I typically brew as espresso and top with an equivalent amount of milk and a bit of sugar. Roasted to the slightly darker side of medium and left to offgas for 24 hours, this is a bold, rich, in your face, wake you up espresso. By day 2 it has mellowed and day 3 is where it seems to find its smoother side while retaining a desirable bold and rich flavor that stands up against milk. Hubby prefers brew or drip and also found this one to be much smoother and more enjoyable 3-4 days after roasting. We'll definitely be purchasing this one again.

This is the best bean to use to make green coffee and roasted coffee beans at a great price. We like our coffee dark and this one works for use. Thanks Jack

All coffee drinkers, especially coffee lovers, have a favorite bean and favorite roast for that bean. My choice is a dark, rich, full-bodied, full-flavored, earthy, non-acid dark roasted coffee - Big Black Organic Blend hits all those requirements with flying colors! I roasted to 431*F for 1 minute. This coffee is magnificent black and extremely delightful in a latte. I have a new favorite to add to my list.

I have been roasting coffee beans for several years, started when the wife and I started getting acid stomachs. So I bought green CBC beans I use a Victoria S.S popcorn popper, I tried the aluminum one didn't think it was healthy. I can roast my beans as dark as we like and get great flavor every time, We have not had any more acid problems. My last purchase was 25 lb of CBC beans last month will hold out for a couple of months. I also boil my beans on the stove in a porcelain pot like cowboy's did. When my wife gets that first sip she says she grew up on coffee like that type. I hope everyone stocks up I did due to the Covid-19. And to keep the coffee Bean corral in business. Right price with great taste. How everybody enjoys and be careful. Jack

No problem roasting. Not a strong "blueberry" taste, but has the body and aroma characteristic of East African coffees. A good compromise blend for people who like moderate fruity notes and a strong earthy body.

Part of the sample pack and I used it to learn more about my Hottop K2+. I liked the sample enough to buy another pound. I experimented at different roast levels and liked it best at City+. We ground the coffee at different settings for a pour over and an Aeropress. Good taste all around. Great body and mild acidity. This blend is now part of our rotation and what I gift to friends. Planning on buying more in the future. Cheers! Davecx

I've home roasted for about two years, now using a second-hand Nesco Professional Home Coffee Roaster. Big Black calls for a 20-25 minute roast, including air fan cooling for the last 5 minutes. I programmed for 24 minutes because I like darker roasts. Even with a medium dark roast, Big Black came out incredibly smooth, almost as if I had added a pat of butter to the coffee. No bitterness at all, even though I sampled a cup less than thirty minutes after the roast.Highly recommended for home roasters of all experience levels.

This is a review of the Big Black CBC Organic Blend. 1st I am a novice at roasting. I use a 3.5 QT Cast Iron Lodge Fryer. I set it on a cold electric burner and turn the Burner on to 6 (out of 10) and let burner and pan heat for 10 minutes. I roasted 8 oz for 20 minutes (near the end of 2nd Crack (i think)) Nice oily dk roast. I let it rest for 2 days. Made coffee in an aeropress with 48 grams of semi fine grind (Hario Conical Burr Grinder) Added 195 degree water about half way up and stirred for the bloom,,, glad I did cause it bloomed more than I am used to, This ultimately made a mug (16 oz) of coffee.... taste was what i wanted, bitter, earthy w/a hint of sweetness... but so smoooooth, no acidic kick. I wont commit to this as my go to bean....cause there are just so many beans to try,,, I will keep buying from CBC!

Roasted a small batch of this a Zenroast in to 2nd crack. Prepared some in a Chemex 10 and 34 hours after the roast. Very flavorful if you like a dark roast style coffee. After enjoying the sample pack, I ordered a 3 lb. bag. I’ll be drinking this one frequently.

Good flavor and body. We drink a half-caf and it's a good for the caffeinated part of the blend. Using a popcorn popper, 1st crack at 3:20 minutes stop at 7:00 yielding a full city roast, just before 2nd crack. Wait at least 2 days before enjoying. Chaff starts in a few seconds.
