How to choose the best coffee beans for your bean to cup coffee machine?

When it comes to selecting the best coffee beans for your  bean to cup machine , our go-to recommendation is to stay away from very  dark roasted  coffees, such as  Italian Roast  or  French Roast medium-dark  or our some of our  dark roasts , which are. As we don't roast to heavy dark level my go-to recommendation is  medium-dark roast. This is because  dark roasted  beans can potentially cause issues for your machine in the long run, while  medium roasts  or lighter can result in a less flavorful brew.
