About Us

Welcome to the The Dark Roast Doctor!

We are an online cafe that plays host to a passionate collective of coffee enthusiasts that firmly believe that you don’t need to go to a cafe to get the best cup of coffee of your day - you can do it yourself. Yep, that’s right, even you. 

All you need is the right equipment, and the right education. And that’s where the Darkroast Doctor comes in. No matter how you make (or take) your coffee, we will help you optimize your morning ritual or afternoon pick-me-up. 

French press? Drip? Espresso? Cold-brew? Pour-over? The possibilities are endless, but without knowing which equipment you need, or which equipment is best, you’ll be left uncaffeinated and unsatisfied. 

Our expert team of espresso experts, cappuccino counselors, latte leaders, macchiato mentors,  americano aces, spend hours using (and abusing) the various devices and instruments available to you to determine which ones produce the best quality coffee, last the longest and don’t break the bank. We press and grind and go where no other review site has bean to ensure you get the answers you need to make great, consistent, affordable coffee. 

At the end of the day, we are here to protect the average coffee consumer from spending money in the wrong places, providing advice and resources to learn from, and allowing a forum of like-minded individuals to spark conversation and collaboration around our shared passion: coffee.  

We look forward to serving you 🙂
