Great coffee but I was hoping for medium roast . I think it was more on the light side of that .
One of the best coffees I’ve ever tried!
Upon grinding, the aroma is deliciously pungent, and is equally the same upon brewing.
If coffee can have a texture, then I'd say this one has a syrupy feel to it.
When flavored coffees sprung into the market years ago, I was quite enamoured with them, and leaned heavily on the Hazelnut offerings by a number of providers.
As time went on, I grew tired of artificially flavored coffee, knowing that even the lowest quality bean could be doctored with oils to make it taste like anything the manufacturer wished it to.
If I didn't know better, I'd say this bean had been infused with a strong dose of artificial blueberry which strikes the palate predominantly right off the bat.
After it cools some, there is a woody flavor I can't quite name, possibly oak, followed by a hint of lemon and even more berry; cinnamon and caramel not so much.
For myself, blueberry just isn't a flavor I wish to taste in coffee.
I have now tried Seven's Sumatra, Roaster's blend, their Guatemalan, and now this.
So far I'd have to say my favorite is the Guatemalan, with this one being on the bottom.
Up next, I have a bag of Bitch blend, and the Ethiopian to try.
Seven is my favorite coffee roaster, and right now the Brazil Carmo De Minas is my favorite roast! It always arrives fresh and is relatively inexpensive compared to other mail order coffee.
Very good smooth not bitter
Grind it yourself, perfect for grind to taste. Also keeps your beans fresh longer. Ideal for any type of brewing, but particularly good for pour-over if you want to dial in your perfect cup.
Coarse grounds that are the same consistency as chunky sea salt. This size is ideal for french press, cold brew and aeropress.
Medium-fine grounds that are ideal for drip.
This fine grind is ideal for espresso. Our version of espresso grind is a bit more coarse, which also makes it good for pour over.
