So I grind my beans as I need them, using number 12 setting for drip unit, I like mine a full body strength so i use a little extra for 14 cups, the coloring is a dark heavy rich color with great oiling floating on top. I don't use paper filters as this captures the bean oils and takes out a major part of the coffee experience IMHO.
Mouth feel is velvety and full and you can immediately feel the buzz of the alkaloids in this blend. taste is superb and not bitter for a darker roast. A great morning coffee if you like french roast but dont want to press 12 cups thru the FP.
