Full Disclosure: I'm a light-medium roast type of person. So this heavily affects my review here! I should have known better. This is a full-bodied, dark roast no-holds bar type of coffee. It was oily and got my entire Spinn machine all oily! Earthy undertone throughout the tongue. Reminds me of burning, smoky cedarwood. When as an espresso it was drinkable, not bitter at all or over extracted. Just really woody, a little peaty. Reminded me of some harsher whiskeys I've had in the past. Again, drinkable. I found the orange, honey, sweet, and dark chocolate taste. Less so on the sweetness though. Doesn't mix well with milk in my opinion. I found that the lattes were overpowered by this bean. The smell of the mix of milk and espresso were lost. Even with milk I'm looking for a good balance and I didn't find it.
Love the balance in this espresso. It was very good as a drip. I’m sure it will be very good in a latte.
