So happy that this roast is on special!! My very favorite! Smooth flavor, with the most amazing taste
I’ve been a Folger’s columbian coffee drinker for many years (yeah I know) and just recently picked up a grinder and tried several different coffees and have to say I enjoyed this one the most. It’s a good flavor and strength (I like it a bit strong mind you) that’s noticeable in a good way. Combine that with a quick froth and Starbucks has got ZERO to offer you from now on.
The beans are dark, oily, fragrant. I fell in love with these the second I unsealed the bag. Yes, fell in love. Further, these beans do something none other have; keep. I’ve had these same beans for months in an air-tight and light-proof container, the way I keep all my beans. But unlike most beans which eventually dry out and lose flavor, these are still pretty oily and retain nearly all of the flavor it had to begin with.
It was with great anticipation, that I waited for my coffee delivery of these Organic Colombian beans… and I was not disappointed! With so many dark roasts, over roasted, and varieties available, I was glad I chose to try this company! The price was right, and the coffee, smooth, mellow, yet full flavored and satisfying. It’s a fair price for Organic.
This is our “house” coffee. Excellent smooth flavor. Not too light and not too strong. We mix in other coffees pretty often to try, but the Altura keeps coming up a winner.
