I have depended on coffee for many years. As a submarine officer in the U.S. Navy, this coffee was shared amongst fellow submariners, and we all approved. It is much smoother than the average roast and does its job to keep you awake. The coffee issued to boats is subpar, so we frequently purchase our own. I have tried many different types from all sort of companies. This type is definitely near the top. The shipment was fast, and it's always great to get it free ( bought the 5lb bag).
