"I love Slate coffees and this blend is delicious as an espresso. Made both hot and iced and it was equally delicious at either temperature. Nice chocolate and raspberry notes.This was a blend of Guatemala and Ethiopian"

"Surprisingly good. I don't typically go for blends with fruit or berry flavors but this was refreshing.It was light and sweet!"

"Given my preference for lighter roasts, I did enjoy this one. It was fairly mild with a bit of a sharp taste; a touch tart even. If you don't normally enjoy light roasts, though, I couldn't recommend it. "

"This isn't as dark as I prefer but the flavors were good. "

"This roast was very light, while I prefer a darker full flavored roast. I brewed this one n my automatic espresso machine. If you prefer a light roast for your espresso then this might be the roast for you. "

"This espresso was very different than I expected. I wash;t sure how I would feel about the strawberry flavor, but I actually liked it more than I thought. Having said that, I do prefer stronger darker blends more!"

"Automatic espresso machine. This roast was better with milk even though it was a light roast. Without milk...not so much. "

"Very light for espresso. Difficult to hit it exactly right. Leave this one to the pros..."

"Someone else described this one as "sharp" and I couldn't agree more!! I wasn't bad but not my fave... "

"I really enjoy this one, it's different with the undertones. I picked up on the fruity taste - maybe blueberry right away. I made it a triple shot latte to make it strong enough. Definitely worth it. Worth trying at least once! "

"Used fine grind in an espresso machine. A bit too light for my taste. "

"Very light. It did have a fruity flavor, and it was sharp. Not what I was expecting as an espresso. "

"To much fruity flavor for my taste. If you like fruity, or floral espressos, you might like this one. "

"This was a good espresso, but I found that it was so light that the steamed milk I added for lattes almost entirely covered up any noticeable tasting notes that should have shown up. It's probably better for those who drink it with less or no milk, but it didn't stand out in a latte."
