A rich, full-bodied blend designed for drip and espresso. Strong and complex, with flavours that reach all corners of the palate, this coffee is creamy and chocolaty, with nice espresso crema and a tantalizing aroma.

Murchie's Bold is a creamy and complex blend of rich medium and dark roast 100% Arabica beans. It is bright on the palate with a full mouth feel and chocolate undertones, with beautiful crema and a tantalizing aroma. A darker twist on our popular Government Street Blend, its strong flavour holds its own when added to milk to create cappuccinos or latte. Brews as an excellent espresso!
Hey - torn between the Bold and Best, but this one is our go-to favorite: lively palate and bright notes for any morning pick-me-up.Posted on 2023-01-28

I love rich, dark roasted coffees, but find I often stay away from them for fear that they will be over-roasted to a point that they taste burnt, bitter and one-noted. Murchie's Bold is the perfect dark roast! It is strong and smooth and rich without displaying any qualities of being over-roasted. It is also so good as espresso, with beautiful crema.Posted on 2014-11-21
You're reviewing: Murchie's Bold Coffee
Tea and coffee tasting is a very individual, multi-dimensional experience: one person’s perfect cup can be too strong or weak, too brisk or watery for the next person. At Murchie’s, we believe that the best tea or coffee is the one that YOU like the best! We use the following flavour profile guides to help compare our teas and coffees within a relative scale.
This rating method indicates the strength of flavour each tea has when brewed according to our brewing guide.
|Light/Delicate: Very light in colour and delicate in flavour|
|Medium: Medium-light cup with slightly fuller cup|
|Medium-Strong: Medium-dark cup, medium body, and full flavour without harshness|
|Strong: Full body, rich cup, takes milk well|
|Very Strong: Rich, dark cup with very full, strong flavour and briskness|
We rate the flavour properties of our coffees along two dimensions: roast and body.
Roast is simply a result of how long and how hot the beans have been roasted, which can be seen in the colour of the finished bean, and typically results in general flavour traits:
|Light Roast||More acidity, brightness and a slight pucker|
|Medium Roast||Slightly richer flavours, some acidity, enhanced creaminess|
|Dark Roast||Distinctive roasted flavour, sometimes notes of toasted sugar or charcoal|
Body is the term used to describe how the brewed coffee feels in your mouth:
|Light Body||Easy to drink with little lingering flavour, ‘thin’ or ‘clean’ feeling on the palate|
|Medium Body||Heavier, creamier mouth-feel with more lingering flavour|
|Full Body||Rich, full-mouth feeling: hits all of the palate and lingers|
Different types of teas should be brewed according to certain times and water temperatures to bring out their best flavours. Use this guide as a starting point, and then experiment until you find the perfect brewing method for your favourite tea.
Based on approximately one level teaspoon (2.5g) of loose tea or one tea bag per 6-8 ounce (180-240ml) cup. For stronger flavour, add more tea. Brewing for longer may increase the strength of the tea, but will likely also cause bitterness.
Brew times shown in minutes.
The simplest methods for brewing coffee are drip coffee, pour over and French press. These guidelines are a starting point; modify the ratio of coffee to water, the grind, and brewing time to your taste. If your coffee is not strong enough, increase the proportion of coffee per cup of water, grind the beans finer, or allow them to brew longer – or any combination of these factors. If your coffee is too strong, simply do the opposite.
