Sorry. That was a seasonal flavor and, if we ever restock it, won’t return until next year

I used to be a dark roast guy. Recently, I've been all about the medium and light roasts because the delicate flavors and their personalities are less masked by the heavy smokiness of the dark roasts.

I adore the more neutral discs like putters, Wombat3, and especially the Discraft Comet. They just seem to have a refined flight path that I love watching and manipulating. Similarly, light roasts and medium roasts tend to be more nuanced in my experience. The unique properties can be more easily manipulated by adjusting the coffee-making process variables. Dark roasts are like Firebirds and other massively overstable discs. They do one thing really REALLY well... but they are usually the correct choice only 10% of the time. Different strokes for different folks.

As a side note, I think many of the bigger companies use inferior beans for the darker roasts because the quality will be masked by the punchier flavors.

I forgot to mention...
We are carrying the RecLife decaf at my insistence. My wife and I absolutely fell in love with it the first time we drank it! Remarkably well-balanced and smooth. We are gonna be guzzling this on the regular.

I have a hunch that many nay-sayers would make an exception for this decaf

I've always wondered, why do many people shrug off the lighter roasts? Any insight? The lighter roasts tend to have a smidge more caffeine than the darker roasts. Not substantially more, just a little. Is it the less pronounced flavors? Just curious...

I prefer a rich flavored dark roast. I was a major Peetnik before we launched Birdie Fuel. Major Dickasons Blend was my go to because it was dark, not acidic but rich as hell.
Similar to CoffeEmac, they have tons of flavor without ever tasting burnt.

I’m the opposite, I never buy dark roast. Typically medium for everyday drinking/drip coffee, and the light roast single origin stuff for messing around with other brew methods. Dark roasts all taste over roasted and pretty much the same to me.

Agreed, I dont buy dark roasts. Light roast for pretty much everything unless a medium is all I can get and dark roasts just arent worth it. Still patiently waiting for a light roast to come out.

If I get my way, we’ll get that light roast soon
I’ve been looking forward to a light roast. We have several mediums and darks... the time has come!

Asking anyone who likes light roasts: What is your favorite origin? I’m an Ethiopian kind of guy.

I'm typically a medium or light roast guy. For years I was using folger's classic roast, then got the keurig and found I liked the breakfast blends the best, which are normally labeled medium, but sometimes come across a light. Now that I'm onto fresh coffee (thanks a lot everyone) I have a couple different medium roasts, Ring of (Camp)fire and one from a different company, but I'm finding I like them around a 1:17 ratio in my inverted aeropress, which I gather is weaker than most people. I'm not sure the best way to describe it, but it has more tastes than just harsh coffee.

Cant say what I prefer yet. Ive only got really into coffee in the past year or two and so far Ive just got it narrowed down to light roasts. From there I havent had one I didnt like yet.
