2017 Best Dark Roast Coffee

Mmmmm – almost nothing appeals to the senses more than the aroma of dark roast coffee brewing – and the first sip of the day is even better. Speaking from experience (my personal opinion), dark roast is much more flavorful, rich and yummy than other roasts.

Plus, there is less acid (and less acid taste) with dark roast than other coffee beans, making it go down just that much easier.

The perfect way to wake up in the morning! 🙂

1. Kicking Horse Kick Ass Dark Roast Coffee

At the very top of the top 5 dark roast coffees for 2017 is one with a pecular and rather amusing name – Kicking Horse Kick Ass Coffee.

Kick Ass is a dark roast coffee with blends from South America and Indonesia. The name says it all.

This coffee has a powerful “horse kick” of caffeine and intense antioxidants. In other words, it wakes you up, then boosts your natural immunities.

The flavors are subtly sweet and smoky.

3. Caribou Coffee Mahogany Dark Roast Coffee

A familiar one to me – Caribou Coffee Mahogany is another among the 2017 best dark roast coffees.

I worked at Caribou Coffee for a number of years when I was a teenager, and the Mahogany was a coffee lover favorite.

Around for decades, the blend boasts full-bodied strength with subtle, nature-made flavors, like vanilla bean and violets.

The first sip unlocks hearty spice – yum.

4. Starbucks French Roast Coffee

Starbucks French Roast is probably a familar one to you – and it also makes the top 5 list of dark roast coffee in 2017.

The Starbucks French Roast is a favorite because it packs a whole bunch of immune-boosting antioxidants in a single cup.

The flavors are intense with a strong dose of heady caffeine.

The dark roast comes in a whole bean bag of 2.5 pounds—well over 80 8-ounce cups of coffee.
