Better than the best I’ve had a subscription to Peet’s for years. I find Starbuck’s dark roast tastes burnt. I saw this coffee in the Gold Box and decided to try it based on the reviews. It is absolutely delicious; the best coffee I’ve ever had. I enjoy it in my morning latte. It has a strong, robust smell, but blends smoothly in my latte’s and mocha’s. Even better, it is ORGANIC and FREE TRADE. How good can it get with the low price per pound and free shipping with Amazon Prime. Closed my subscription from Peets and buying Dark Horse from Amazon from now on. I LOVE IT!!!
Not good for super-automatic espresso/coffee makers This looks like a pretty decent coffee, but its not suitable for super-automatic espresso/coffee makers. Problem is that the beans are TOO oily. Good if you self-grind… bad if you put the beans in a large hopper and expect them to automatically slide into the grinder when needed… The oil creates a stickiness which tends to keep the beans stationary. 5 stars if rating the coffee simply on the quality of the beans… would be unfair to downgrade the avg because they don’t work with my setup.
Just what I wanted I very much enjoy dark roasts. The challenge I find is that many of them are either burnt or overly bitter from poor roasting. This coffee does a very good job of being a strong dark roast that is full of flavor without any hint of burnt or bitter flavors. It is very dark and oily and the small portion that did not fit in my airtight container dried out a bit and was not as strong flavored. That took over 3 weeks though due to the volume of coffee and it was still better than other dark roasts I have tried. I have used this for guests to eat with pies and cake over the holidays and all of them commented on its excellent flavor. A couple who don’t really like dark roast did request some cream, but still gladly had multiple cups.I would recommend this to anyone who:1. Likes dark roast coffee2. Doesn’t know, and wants to try it3. Wants to change it up from a medium, or god forbid, a light roast.It is a good quality product made…
