BERT'S BREAKFAST BLEND #263
12 oz whole bean dark coffee

Want to be notified when it's back?

Today I’m sipping Captain Bert’s Breakfast Blend, one of the staple roasts that has buoyed Lighthouse Roasters’ reputation for over 25 years. Darker than the usual breakfast blend, Bert’s is a Central American and Sumatran mix: the Central American brings body, heft, and a smooth nutty chocolate; the Sumatran its earthy complexity. It’s a hard coffee to describe, because it “tastes like coffee”. The type of coffee that’s heady, aromatic and dark, easy to throw into a French press, maybe heat up some milk in the microwave, and settle into the morning. A good breakfast blend, roasted a few ticks lighter than a traditional espresso blend, this is the lighthouse of the coffee world, shining a beacon of flavor and welcoming us to the day.

"Really great flavor and I liked the silly information on the label."

"Breakfast Blend is the perfect name for this one, though I’ve also enjoyed it after lunch. Lighter roast than I usually favor but it was a flavorful cup of coffee with a lot of lovely notes to it."

"Hearty brew that wakes you up in the morning. Great in my french press, next time I'd like to grind it fine and try espresso. "

"Like most "breakfast blends" it was light-bodied and nothing special. It reminded me a lot of Dunkin Donuts (their freshape in-house coffee). Drinkable, but not memorable."

"Seemed way to dark to be called a breakfast blend or roast "
EDWARD 05/09/2017

"Darker than my wife and I were expecting. Not one I'd buy again, because I prefer lighter and smoother."
JULIE 05/08/2017

"Very nice dark roast, it had a deep bold flavor that was satisfying."
CHASE 05/05/2017

"Too dark for me, but some people would really like it. I used with chemex and espresso. Strong flavor, just too acidic and oily for a guy that likes lighter to medium roast. "
