Thunderbird is our darkest roast – not for the weak of heart. Roasted the way the French have done it for years, Thunderbird is a blend of organic, high-grown Arabica picked from some of the highest mountain farms.
High-altitude boldness is what the Thunderbird is all about. When coffee is grown at higher altitudes the beans are much denser and as a result, the taste is more concentrated and complex. Some abbreviations we look for when sourcing our green coffee are: SHG (strictly high grown) SHB (strictly hard bean) These 2 grades of bean can make all the difference.
