Easy to use and make the best coffee.
Don't know if I can tell the difference between the regular and the dark. But I have switched to Dark ... just because.
The Dark Roast Profile has made a 100% improvement and transformed the flavor and aroma of my coffee. I use Lavazza Super Crema beans in a Breville Grinder Pro with a Technivorm brewer. Previously I used the Classic profile, which is great. But the Dark Roast Profile in combination with the Italian Lavazza beans and my brewer SINGS!! True café quality.
In my personal opinion, I felt this water brew very good sweet bitterness, vanilla flavor and smooth mouth feel body from a dark roast beans. I felt this water inhibits acidity level to a little bit small beside the trigger of the bitter-sweetness. When I tried to brew a cup of coffee, it seems that ground coffee beans became very melty while brewing time. I do not know why…but he number of the yield rises up to a lttle bit higher than usual, but almost same. This was just my feeling personally. I think this water is useful for balancing bitter sweetness and bitter-acidity which is not including sweetness. I really like the bitter sweetness and vanilla flavor brewed by this water. I do not like sour-bitterness. In the case of that my customer wants to inhibits fruit’s acidity as well, I would like to use this water for brewing a dark roast beans.
I usually buy dark roast beans and grind them myself. I bought the new dark roast Third Wave product, but can find no explanation of how it differs from the original formula.
