This roast goes deeper and into darker realms than we've ever gone before. But have no fear: the same care and passion for exploration that guided us to stellar light roasts have informed this journey, too.
So what does it take to boldly go? We found it takes incredibly sweet coffees that will hold up to longer roast times and higher temperatures. The coffees we use in Supernova are like interstellar spacecraft designed to not burn up when they reenter the atmosphere. We wanted to push them to that perfect threshold where the sugars would caramelize and leave us with a flavor reminiscent of baker's chocolate.
This is where we landed. We think it's pretty far out, pretty dark and pretty dang good.
