"The fruit notes were too strong for me and overcame the other (mostly nutty) flavors. Using a coarse grind, I brewed the entire sample bag in a french press with four cups of water for 4 minutes." (2 out of 5)

"Very well-balanced, rich espresso. Nice chocolate notes that blend into a a sweet honey body which finishes with a light fruity acidity. The chocolate and honey flavors paired very well with milk drinks. I will be buying this again. This was a very forgiving coffee to dial in for home espresso." (5 out of 5)
