A complex yet well balanced coffee with a pleasant citrus finish. Flavors of dark chocolate, toffee, sweet black tea, sweet lemon and cane sugar are present at lighter roast levels. Darker roasts trend towards the smokey and savory side

First off I want to say I am not familiar with all the fancy terminology when describing coffees. I go by sight, taste, and aroma. I read the description of these beans and decided to try them. I am now into my first one pound roast and so far am extremely happy with it. I prefer a darker roast and after several mornings with the roast I feel it is one of the better beans I have tried since I started home roasting.

The flavor of the brew is nice and strong, I use a special manual only brewer that allows me to control almost all aspects of the brew cycle, with a very nice aftertaste. The aroma while brewing makes it hard to brew it slow enough for the best taste. I just want to dive in and get started. Also when I open the container to get the beans for the morning grind the aroma is so good. Right now I put this behind only a good Blue Mountain bean, which has pretty much priced itself out of my inventory, and at this price it is well worth trying.
