I almost did not get to sample this fine blend. I ordered it from Uncle Beanz along with several pounds of Green Beans. I have been roasting some Sweet Maria's Classic Espresso and Monkey Blend, and just wanted to compare them to something.
I left it on the Coffee Table and I guess Parker, my Nova Scotia Duck Trolling Retriever though it was smelled great too. When I came home from work on Friday, he had managed to get the bag off the coffee table and open it up. spilling a few ounces on the ground. I was able to salvage most of it.
Using my Gaggia MDF Grinder and Coffee Espresso It has produced perfect 25 second double shots with a nice thick crema about 5mm thick. It has a little bittersweet and nutty flavor to it. I have had several shots straight, but I think it would work well in Milk drinks as well. It is strong and flavorful but not harsh. It pairs great with dark chocolate.
