This was our first order, which arrived within three days of placing it! (That is in NS which is considered a ‘remote’ area!) Great service.
This coffee is our first try and we use a grinder which was grinding too fine for this bean which is a little oilier than the beans we have had before. The steam couldn’t properly penetrate the coffee in the portafilter in the espresso machine. The next one we ground a little less finely. The taste is lovely and smooth with a satisfying strength and no bitterness. We are not coffee tasters so don’t have the proper terms to describe the flavours, but we like this first coffee a lot.
