Great quality and value. I just brewed up a pot in my french press after receiving the bag in the mail today and I have to say I am impressed! Like another reviewer noted, this is a true dark roast. Extremely fresh tasting, and very smooth flavor with very little acidity. I can definitely see myself ordering this again. ~$30 shipped for 5 lbs versus paying 8-10/lb at a grocery store for wildly varying quality and age…it’s a no brainer.Edit: (8.10.2011) Unfortunately I have to re-visit my original review of this product. The past 2 times I’ve ordered I’ve noticed the quality reduced significantly. The beans seem somewhat stale upon arrival and there is a definite bitterness that was not present in orders 6-12 months ago. I’ve decided to switch to a local roaster that produces a far fresher and superior product for not much more money.
5 whole lbs. This is a lot of coffee for the price. Very nice flavor. It’s a darker bean but not a full on dark roast to me. Coffee oils present on the beans when you open the bag. Adds taste. Not bitter at all and a real good buy that I’m happy with and will buy again.Update:On second thought I would call a this a true dark roast. What confused me was this is a good one. Darks usually are bitter to me. I always thought many producers put in additives for the dark flavor. Not one I find too pleasant usually. I’ve been avoiding dark roasts for a while and now found a good one. Good quality at a price that is hard to beat. Oils on the beans really flavor it up! Good smoother dark roast. 5 lbs of Quality.So two years later I’m still buying this coffee. I have ordered for other people because I have Prime and every time the comment is “That is a giant bag.” and then “I told you it was five pounds when I ordered.” Five pounds in person is a lot. This really is a bargain…
