"Very chocolatey. A little heavy but stands up to milk nicely."

"Robust flavor, not bitter but holds it own if paired with chocolate. I brewed this with my espresso maker and no issues with the extraction."

"Tried this a variety of ways-- drip. chemex, french press. Very smooth and velvety. This isn't my typical, preferred flavor profile in a espresso but I liked it a great deal. Would order again."

"This is a very good espresso bean. This is fantastic in, both, milk drinks and as a straight shot. This one is moving into my rotation!"

"A smooth, non bitter espresso. We prepared it using the espresso machine. Good in a mocha and as a cappuccino. This is one we want to order a full bag of!"

""This coffee has been one of my favorites to date! I'm going to order more!""

"While I thought this coffee had a bold flavor with nice crema, I typically prefer something more floral. Probably personal preference, honestly."

"I just tried the roast today! Ground up the beans, added a scoop to my ninja coffee bar, rich brew setting, steamed milk added foam. First taste was absolutely AMAZING! This is a medium/darker blend and full of flavor. I highly recommend it."

"This is an all round people pleaser. Nothing crazy, just good old trustworthy bean. "

"This coffee has been one of my favorites to date! I'm going to order more!"

"I enjoyed this taste a lot, it was quite creamy as described. "

"Not many different flavors, but very solid coffee taste and smell. "

"Very good. My family enjoyed sharing this espresso. Would buy again."

"This was a really good espresso roast. Nice and smooth. I will buy this again. "

"Oh wow, this was so good. Exactly what espresso should be! Dark, rich with a hint of chocolate. 10/10 would buy again!!!"

"The chocolate flavor was more bold and bitter than smooth, somewhat like a dark chocolate. This roast was a little bitter for my taste, and I probably won't be ordering it in the future."

"A good casual blend. A bit on the simpler side, bold flavor but not as complex. If you prefer more basic espresso tastes this may be one for you. Not my favorite but still a good coffee."

"This coffee is a great dark roast but i believe the flavor does not stand out compared to other similar dark roasts."

"Definitely get chocolate/coco hints. Not my favorite but not bad. Super bitter to me "

"Was used on the espresso machine, it simply not the best. Great crema but the cocoa was over powering. The beans are between medium and dark roast."

"Absolutely my favorite. I used a french press and the smell is amazing. The taste was even better than the smell. Definetly will be purchasing."

" This blend smelled amazing as it was being brewed. My whole kitchen smelled like chocolate coffee. The taste did not live up to the smell. It was a little bit bitter. But it was still quite delicious in comparison to regular Cup of Joe. "

"It was a nice roast, but I'm not a chocolate fan, at least when it comes to coffee. "

"Very smooth. The cocoa maybe a little much for my taste."

"This has to be my favorite of all times. It is so smooth and creamy. "

"For the price, this was enjoyable. Not the best out there for sure, but if you are looking for a respectable blend to pull shots with on a budget, I would recommend it. "

"Brewed an espresso. Darker than I prefer, and not much beyond a subtle chocolate taste. Fell kind of flat for me. "

"This bean was very smooth and silky. The hint of chocolate and cocoa was a bit much for me but it was still good"

"We brew with an espresso machine and this coffee has an amazing crema. It has a defined flavor where you can taste the chocolate, the aroma is pleasant but not intense, it feels tangy at first and then acid"

"I like chocolate. A lot. However, this coffee might be a bit too chocolatey for my tastes. It definitely delivers on its promise, but I personally felt the chocolate overtones thoroughly overpowered the taste of the coffee itself, and I missed having any of the lighter notes that I usually love."

"Not the best. Has a fair amount of chocolate and cocoa powder but doesn't stand up as much as some other beans I've used. Has a flavor that almost tastes like dirt, and a little bit of funk sort of like Jamaican rum every time brewed french press. aeropress came out a little better; maybe bad batch?"

"From 2 stars to 4! I initially tried this roast in 04/16 and was not impressed. It smelled like a bad roast batch, and certainly tasted the same way. However I was sent another sampler and behold, I was impressed! smoky, chocolaty, earthy flavor--all of which are among my favorite notes and flavors."
