This coffee is simply amazing. The roast is perfect, dark but not burnt. The beans are large and the flavor is full, but not overbearing. I don't know the origin of the beans, but this is a well-balanced blend. I can't say that I taste any chocolate, or caramel or nuttiness', etc. but there is simply a mouth filling taste of pure flavor and joy. Low acidity. This is certainly the best coffee that I have tasted that is marketed through I-herb. The value for money can't be beat. I am planning to make this my house blend and renew my order soon. BTW this blend was recommended on the producer's (Verena) website, and I agree that they know what they are talking about. I'm also happy that it comes in a large size, which is a better value. I had another Verena coffee (Sumatra) which was good, but this is much more to my liking. I'm happy that I-herb is distributing this. Drink up!
I use moka pot and starpresso to make the coffee/espresso. Taste great. since this is 100% Arabica (unlike traditional blend for making espresso with Robusta beans), the espresso brewed doesn't taste like traditional espresso for obviously reason but still tastes great.
