I normally brew espresso (1 to 1.5 ratio). I bought this to brew espresso lungo (1 to 3 ratio). Roasted perfectly and shipped the same day I ordered. Smooth, bursting with flavor and a long finish..... I could drink these all day long. If you want a single origin bean before prices go up, this would be one to try.
This is one of the best coffees I've tried so far. I've only been into good coffee about a year, but I tried countless roasters and many coffees, from different regions. This is special. From the nice aroma to the unbelievable natural sweetness. Berries, cherries flowers and other flavors. Beautiful roasting job. Truly a master piece. Good job and thanks.
I had the Bitch Blend the other day at Biscuit Bitch and bought a bag of those beans and loved the flavor profile. Thought I would branch out and try another coffee from Seven, so tried the Costa Rica Micro-Lot. I ordered the coffee from the website and it was shipped the next day and arrived the day after that. I liked the coffee but would not order it again because the Bitch Blend was so much better than this one. The coffee's pear notes were strong and a good flavor but the tangerine and honey flavors were not noticeable. The thing I usually like about Costa Rican coffees is the sweet caramel/honey/molasses flavor but that flavor did not come through on this batch. The Bitch Blend, on the other hand, is one of the best coffees I've ever had and is all around delicious.
Was very impressed by the speed of which I received the coffee by mail, the packaging, the ground, and personal note - thanks Patrick, was PERFECT. The only reason it is not 5 stars, is that I didn't really care for the "flavor" of the limited edition micro-lot coffee I received. I have been drinking it for a week now, and I have gotten used to the taste. Clearly, I should have picked a blend I am more familiar with, and do not fault Seven Coffee Roasters for my less than stellar choice of coffee. I will try again in the future. Overall, the experience has been wonderful.
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.
