That is assuming that the coffees they sell are any good at lighter roasts.
Roasting dark allows them to sell coffees that would otherwise be unpalatable at lighter roasts; hence maybe they DO provide the best taste experience from the coffees they sell, but not the best taste experience possible.
Or more likely, the best *consistent* taste experience from the coffees they sell.
