Perhaps the naming of the Siena Blend is a nod to the famous Italian city’s rich history of artistic innovation. One thing is clear: the bold body and complex notes make this roast a masterpiece.
This big-bodied cup possesses a complex acidity with light winey notes, overlaid with a rich nutty aroma and subtle roasty finish. Similar to the boldest of red wines from the Napa Valley.
"I was disappointed in this one. I love coffee, and I love wine, and the two just didn't combine here as well as I'd have liked. Not a bad cup of coffee, though."
"I was a bit disappointed only because my coffee bag so very obviously has the wrong labeling. I was looking for the earth, cherry notes but what I got was bold, nutty. What saved this coffee is that it is exactly like I want my coffee....DARK & BOLD!"
"An oily bean which I tend to like. A moderately dark roast which truly does smell uncannily like red wine. An ideal choice for perhaps a dinner coffee on occasion, but definitely not what I would desire as a daily standard brew. "
"This was a solid, good cup of joe. Smooth and pleasant way to start my day!"
"A good dark coffee with a nice, but not overwhelming, amount of spice. I'd like to try it again."
"This was a pretty standard dark roast. Okay, but nothing mind-blowing. The nuttiness came through pretty well, but it was too bitter for me overall. "
"Very rarely do I not drink a cup of coffee but this was one of the exceptions. To us, it tasted like ash."
"It was a little too bitter for me, even with a splash of cream."
"It was a straightforward dark to me. Nice, but nothing special."
"One of my absolute new favorite coffees. Brewed in french press."
"It really does have a wine note to it. I'm not sure this is what I want at 6am, so went with a 3/5."
