Alfred Peet, the iconic roaster for Peet's Coffee, is known in the industry as a master of the very dark roast. For many people we've met, that emphasis on dark roasting sometimes sacrifices the taste of the coffee bean in favor of the taste of the roast. If you're looking for a great balance between bean taste and dark roast profile, have a look at Fundamental Coffee or Fonte. Scot McMartin, founder of Fundamental, trained under Alfred Peet, and his mission is to bring back the art of the dark blend.
