This blend, Dancing Goats®, has been a cafe staple for 33 years. Versatile and traditional, its classic flavors of toasted nuts, caramel, and chocolate dominate this simple, elegant cup, with muted background notes of dried fruits. Drink it black, drown it in milk, or pull it as an espresso: it's all good. Why dancing goats? In the remote highlands of 9th century Abyssinia, now Ethiopia, a lone goatherd named Kaldi noticed his goats were full of energy, dancing and prancing, after eating a small red fruit from a nearby shrub. Not wishing to be left out of the fun, he ate the cherries and soon he was dancing too. According to legend, Kaldi and his goats had discovered coffee. Brew a cup, tap your toes… before you know it, you might be dancing with the goats.

Really enjoyed the tasting notes behind the initial dark body

I think I need to use this as an espresso to get the full flavor profile. It wasn't bad in a drip, just seemed weak.

We use a very good burr grinder and an extremely good drip machine for our daily coffee. One that "blooms" the grounds first. That said, this was a medium-dark coffee. Rich with nutty and toasty flavors and low acidity. Some mild chocolate notes at the very beginning, but they fade fast, giving way to the nuttininess. The toast is a long finish. But a really perfect toast. Not a burnt or overdone toast. No fruitty notes!! We are not fans of the fruity notes except mild citrus sometimes. We prefer the chocolate, nut & toast profiles. So for us, that is a good thing. This is our new favorite. Our other favorite, which is now a close second place, is Dark Side of the Moon. That is more chocolatey and more decadent. This is more nutty and toasty. But both are just amazingly well-crafted with great tastes from beginning to end.

I was initially intrigued by the name of this blend, so I was excited to give it a try. This coffee is truly decadent and packed with flavor. I tried this blend in both the french press and as a drip coffee and found it to be delicious using either method!

★★★★★
Really liking his blend, not too bitter so it’s great as a hot or iced espresso application. There are sweet after notes that aren’t artificially tasting.
Savannah
★★★★★
I drank this hot from the french press and it was really good. It's nice and bold, but not bitter. It has a tiny hint of cherry, but the cherry flavor isn't very bold.

★★★★★
Nice cherry flavor in a medium to medium dark roast. Drank black from french press.

★★★★★

We loved this roast! Low on bitterness, high on caramel and nuts! If you are a fan of medium roasts, this medium-dark roast is probably for you! Enjoy! Will order again!
