Delicious!

I chose Redemption Road at first because my money would be going to support a ministry that helps people in their spiritual lives. But there coffee has turned out to be delicious too. I love Sumatra beans previous to having a Spinn Coffee maker. These beans are oily though. I normally like oily beans but in a Spinn machine I have to push them close to the grinder with my hand every few cups just to make sure they are sliding into the grinder. I am going to try a medium roast from Redemption road to see if they slide any better in the hopper by themselves. Conclusion: beans are delicious but if you buy them you may have to manually help the bean hopper from time to time.
Very good coffee at a great value

I’ve been going through and sampling different offerings in the Spinn marketplace and landed on this one a couple weeks ago. Let me just say that it’s the first coffee I’ve sampled where I went back for a second bag and could see this being a staple in my rotation. The roast is nice and dark with a fantastic aroma. There is just enough oil that it starts to stick to my grinder but doesn’t clog it up. I tend to like a more oily, dark coffee bean so this is a plus in my book. The taste is just about where I prefer it. While it is a dark brew, it’s not overpowering or too bitter (at least for my tastes). There’s just enough bite that it lets you know you’re drinking a full bodied coffee. Very pleased with this one!
Good to the last drop in my cup.

This is a no-nonsense dark coffee. We love it! It is well balanced through to the after-taste. You go through a craving moment as you consider making another cup.
Good but not top drawer

On opening the bag I knew this would be a good-tasting coffee: nice dark beans with a sheen of oil, which are two things I look for. The aroma of the beans showed promise as well. This excellent aroma was even more pronounced after grinding. After brewing, the coffee had lost a bit of its promise though it still smelled great. It was only after I tasted the brew that I noticed a bitter hint above what I usually prefer. Since that first cup I have thoroughly enjoyed my daily mugs of this bean. This coffee is heartily recommended. [Please note that I am not the sort who can distinguish among the various shadings of coffee flavor such as smoke, caramel, etc. so I don't comment on those subtleties.]
