    This dark, heavy-bodied Italian espresso roast is excellent for espresso or for flavorful iced or regular coffee. The flavor is bold and rich with tangy undertones.

    Cupping Notes: Dense, Red Fruits, Bittersweet


    Fine Ground: At a fine grind, coffee should be soft to the touch – slightly finer than granulated sugar.

    Espresso: Great espresso requires skill, patience and quality equipment. Without these things, and a proper grind, espresso can be thin and weak or over extracted and clog in the portafilter. The perfect grind is essential to reaching espresso nirvana; an intensely rich and creamy extraction with thick crema and well rounded flavor.
    Grind: Fine/Very Fine

    Aeropress: The Aeropress is a quick and efficient way to make flavorful, rich coffee with low acidity and bitterness. With specially designed micro-filter technology the Aeropress consistently provides some of the best coffee in just under 20 seconds.
    Grind: Fine/Medium

    Medium Ground: At a medium grind, coffee should be gritty like sand with no considerably large pieces.

    Auto Drip Pot: The Auto Drip style coffee maker is an efficient and hassle-free way to make a fresh pot. With the correct grind and water to coffee ratio, it IS possible to get a great cup of coffee using this method.
    Grind: Medium

    Chemex: The Chemex is an elegant brewing device that extracts only the purest, most flavorful coffee without any bitterness or sediment. Because of the incredible functionality and design, the Chemex, paired with Chemex Bonded Filters, create a pure coffee experience unlike any other.
    Grind: Medium/Coarse

    Coarse Ground: At a coarse grind, coffee is separated into large fragments similar to grained kosher salt.

    French Press: The French Press is a classic and easy way to prepare decadent and smooth coffee and can easily be converted to brew cold coffee. The coffee grounds and water are separated by a fine mesh plunger leaving only fresh brewed coffee after 5 short minutes.
    Grind: Coarse

    Toddy Cold Brew: The Toddy Cold Brew system is a simple and consistent way to extract a delicious and low-acid brew. Oils and fatty acids that would normally settle into hot coffee are eliminated leaving you with a perfectly balanced and smooth cup of iced coffee.
    Grind: Coarse

    I really like this coffee to make my iced coffee. The coffee beans are not too oily. The taste is not too bitter, but I taste strong coffee taste as desired. I recommend this coffee for making Iced coffee. It might be a bit weak for espresso.

    Great flavor, grind too large for espresso machine

    Cons:

    As far as the flavor, this is a wonderful traditional espresso roast. Very smooth, a little smokey, and almost creamy when forced through an espresso machine. I ordered the fine grind, which is still a little too big for the espresso machine. As good as it is, it still ends up not quite ans thick and frothy as a true espresso grind would be.


    Very good value

    The Italian Roast Espresso coffee is a very good value when bought in the 5 pound option. I have purchased 15+ pounds of this coffee and it is consistently good. Sometimes it seems a bit fresher than others, but every time it is fresher than the grocery store. If I could ask one improvement - please date stamp the coffee as to when it was roasted. Over all a very good dark roast coffee.
