Chanticleer Inn’s coffee of choice is an Organic shade-grown French Roast, a richly-roasted blend of five coffees. The blend is darkly roasted without going too far for mocha undertones and a big flavor profile.
Brewing It Right
Sourcing excellent coffee is as important as employing the correct brewing process. At the Chanticleer Inn, we follow these steps to ensure consistently brewed coffee:
Only use freshly roasted organic beans — no older than 2 weeks.
Store in air-tight containers at room temperature, away from sunlight
Grind the beans with a burr grinder, just and only moments before brewing
Measure with a scale to ensure consistent and accurate ratio of coffee grinds to water
Brew with a French Press and timer for optimal extraction of oils
Immediately transfer the coffee to insulated air-tight carafes
