Creamy dark chocolate and a raw sugar sweetness define the darkest roast we offer.

Seated on Bronson St. in Santa Cruz’ Seabright neighborhood, coffee arrives at our roastery in the form of a dried green seed found formerly in the center of a tropical cherry. Neither soluble, pliable nor frangible (a material’s ability to be broken or, in this case, “ground”), green coffee has yet a ways to go before becoming a roasted coffee “bean” that we’re able to, upon grinding, dissolve in water.
At our Bronson St. facility, Verve’s roasting team members tame our fleet of vintage, German-built Probat roasters (which spend most of their days at a mild 400F) to bring to life Verve coffees as we know them.
While our single-origin offerings are roasted to highlight the unique and seasonal characteristics that make them individually special, our blends, on the other hand, promote balance and consistency year-in, year-out. To uphold this promise, our roasting team must adapt to any agriculture variability we find from crop-to-crop with the levels of temperature and time.
Aptly named, our Bronson French Roast is our darkest profile yet, capitalizing on caramelization to achieve a dark sugar sweetness capable of only high-grown specialty coffees.
I’m a very happy Verve customer, but since you asked, I’d like to share one tiny frustration. Right after I bought these two 2
kilo Bronson bags, you sent me a promotion for 5 lbs of Bronson at a discount. This was less than perfect timing, and had the affect of bumming me out because I couldn’t use the promo, because I had Just purchased almost the exact same amount. Maybe this was a computer generated situation, but it felt a bit insensitive rather than helpful. Don’t worry, I’m still committed to Bronson and I’m happy with Verve. Just letting you know because you asked.
Our local coffee shop shut down during the pandemic, but fortunately I was able to order directly from Verve. The order came promptly and of course the beans (Bronson) are the best!
I love the taste of your coffee! It's the best! Found it when visiting California and order it now from out of state. Thank you for making such a good coffee bean.
Best roast EVER
Bought this and I will never go back. I’ve had 3 of the Verve roasts and boy does this one hit different! 10/10
The flavor of Bronson is so rich and delicious. The beans work great in our espresso machine or drip.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel.
