Dark Roast

Special Dark


STAFF PICK 2022, 2024 🏆

Strong, full body. Anise aroma. Tastes of dark chocolate.


“Dillanos Special Dark is my go to coffee for 3am wake ups during late season archery hunts.

There is nothing better than the strong, full body, black licorice aroma and tastes of dark chocolate while sitting in 15 degree weather and 30 feet above the ground in my tree stand.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Grind Should I Choose?

We offer seven different grind options with most of our coffees.
  • Whole Bean
  • Drip, Pour Over & Chemex (the most common option for home use)
  • Coarse Drip (for some commercial brewers)
  • French Press
  • Toddy / Cold Brew
  • Espresso
  • Home Espresso (compatible with most home espresso machines, which require a slightly coarser grind than commercial espresso machines)
You can choose the grind that best matches the method you’ll be using to brew your coffee.  However, if you need more information to drill down on exactly which one will suit your needs, please head over to watch this video made by our Director of Coffee.

    Have been drinking this for over a decade and recommend it to everyone. We use it as our espresso bean.

    This coffee is special to me as it was the first coffee I tried from Dillanos. It is without a doubt my favorite coffee from any roaster. If you like dark roast coffee-nothing even comes close to this one. Joy in a cup!

    Outstanding espresso bean!! Dark, nuanced, and just delicious. DCR has become our favorite and there’s not even a close second.
