"A fantastic coffee. It's rich and bold with a slight sweetness to it. I made it with a drip machine and French press and it was terrific either way. I can't think of an espresso roast I have had that is nearly as good. Definitely going to get more of this one. " (5 out of 5)

"Brewed using aeropress, V60 hot and iced, and french press. The only brew method I enjoyed was the french press. Intense dark chocolate that ends in bitterness. " (3 out of 5)

"Definitely not our favorite coffee. In fact, it is probably our least favorite we've gotten thus far. It is better in milk, but we prefer drinking americano's and espresso's. Q" (3 out of 5)

"This was an instant favorite. Dark, strong, and bold, with lots of flavorful oils. Grinds well, but a little slowly in my Porlex Mini, and makes great Moka in my Bialetti. Got almost 30 cups of coffee out of the bag. " (4 out of 5)

"Molasses, nut, chocolate flavor. Not a fan of the espresso by itself, but enjoyed it more in an iced or hot latte. 35 second extraction time, at 200°F" (3 out of 5)

Star fullStar fullStar fullStar full

"Starts with a strong dry aroma of Molasses. The cup is definitely dark chocolate dominant with a pleasant subtle hint of fruit. Sweet almond tones round out the flavor profile perfectly. Bold enough to get your attention but not overly aggressive. Great with or without milk. " (4 out of 5)

"I received a 3 month subscription as a gift, with dark roast options. I have to say their wasn't a bad sample in the 12 I received, yet being a real dark roast lover this is my bean of choice. Aromatic, very smooth, no bitterness, blooming ... an absolutely delightful cup of full rich flavor." (5 out of 5)
