A delightful coffee blend named for Seattle’s artsy Fremont neighborhood, affectionately known by locals as the “Center of the Universe”. One sip and you’ll understand: this coffee is out of this world!
A smooth, medium roast of seasonal, Fair Trade, and Organic certified coffees. Notes of baked pear, rooibos, and almond.
"Baked pear and almond sounded delicious in a coffee. However, I wasn't able to pick up either of those flavors, and least not brewed in a drip machine. Perhaps a french press or cold brew might have brought out those flavors. "
"almond and pear are two of my favorite flavors so it was a treat to find them in this coffee"
"It was good coffee, but didn't particularly stand out - I wasn't able to tell the "notes of baked pear". "
"I am really enjoying this coffee (drinking it currently!) It has a hint of sweetness, but nothing over-the-top. No acidic aftertaste or bitterness. The first word that came to mind when I drank it were "delightful" - which I then noticed was the exact same word the package uses to describe it. :)"
"I really liked this coffee, It was smooth and i enjoyed the nutty taste!"
"Nice spice and nut notes! Smooth but with nice play. "
"I thought this coffee was ok, however, the last roast that we had from Ladro was far superior to this one. I brewed this coffee with my french press and aero press and wasn't particularly impressed by any single flavor as nothing stood out to me. Smooth yes, flavorful...meh. "
"Tasted somewhat bland to me. Not a lot of flavor out of this one."
"Average taste - none of the flavors really stood out. Will add the rest of the package to our blend."
"Description of this coffee was good, aroma was good, but taste - I didn't like it. Maybe as Americano or espresso it will be good but as latte - no. "
"The pear flavor was not my favorite. It took me a while to find the flavor. All that said it was smooth, might grind more beans than usual. "
"Decent coffee. Nothing really great though. Just ok/decent. "
"I really liked this as a morning coffee. It's bold but tea and pear notes were subtle. Great aroma while brewing! Would definitely buy again. "
"Wasn't too bad, but not overly memorable. Used a Bee House pour over."
"The pear flavor was subtle yet extremely tasty. My boyfriend and I LOVED this one. The acidity was on point and the boldness of the coffee was appreciated."
"I drank this two weeks after delivery. Still good. I only grind right before the brew of course and I used a pour over method. This coffee has a full mouth feel and would go great with a lighter pairing. The fruit and nutty undertones make me want a fruit pastry or an almond cookie. "
"I usually don't like coffees with fruit undertones, but the pear was a nice touch. Ladro always seems to have interesting picks!"
"Light, smooth, and clean. Enjoyed this one all the way through. Brewed the whole sample bag in a 10 cup drip coffee maker and served with half and half, the coffee stood up to the cream very well. I recommend. "
"I didn't care for this roast. Came out very light with high acidity. At first taste it was all lemon zest and earthiness. After reading the notes of rooibos I was able to distinguish the earthiness more precisely as rooibos notes. But I didn't pick up much pear flavor. A touch of cream helped a lot."
"Not my favorite. Quite earthy and spicy, but I prefer lighter blends."
"Great Morning Brew. Light body and flavor. I even get some hints of black tea. "
"We made this in a french press and it was super light. We set a timer as we always do, but it just didn't come out well. It might be better prepared in a different way."
"This was one of my favorites in the batch I just received. Its nothing crazy exciting but a coffee I can have everyday and enjoy. "
"in the words of rick ross, "shout out to all the pear"!"
"I brewed this using a french press. I found it to have a light mouth feel with a tea like after taste. It seemed high in acid to me. Overall, a decent cup of coffee."
"Very good coffee, but not a standout for me. Smooth, but no strong flavors standing out."
"A very nice coffee. Smooth, flavorful, a great addition to our list of favorites."
"A good blend for breakfast--I really enjoyed the smoothness. Excellent black. "
"We made the coffee with a french press, the roast was a little too dark for my taste buds. "
"My favorite so far! i taste the almond note in the description"
