This coffee was very good, being at least the equal of the best of the 7 different coffees I have tried thus far here from Amazon. It was very fresh, had excellent aroma, and produced a very nice brew in my French press. Upon receipt of the coffee I noticed that the bag was nowhere near full. I have had other coffees come in less-than-full bags, but this one seemed to be way off. Since I sell merchandise online myself, I have an accurate postal scale. The "2 pound" bag came in at almost 6 ounces less than a full 32, including the weight of the bag. From previous orders from Amazon, other coffees seem to be based on the "as delivered" weight, not on some sort of weight prior to roasting. The bag itself did not have a breather, so it is hard to imagine that almost 20% of the weight was lost in shipping. Don't know what happened here but the result is that I feel I payed almost 20% more for the beans than the advertised price. I am curious if others have noticed this from this...
In my efforts to find a coffee that my husband and I really like, I think we have tried half the coffees on Amazon! This is finally one that we both like and will stick with. It isn't too strong, but it has a lot of flavor. Just right for us. Let me say that neither of us like a dark roast, so for those who do, this will not be a good coffee. Try the other Altura coffees. My son-in-law gets both the Sumatra and the Dark Roast, and loves them both. I had ordered one of them, and liked the flavor, but it was too dark for us. Based on that, I should have known earlier that Altura regular roast would be the one for me. But no, I had to learn by my own mistakes! I will try to give you a list of what we tried, and what we thought of each.
Coffee Bean Direct Yirgacheffe. I like Yirgacheffe coffee, but this one was hard to swallow. It wasn't a pleasant taste at all, and it was a 5 pound bag! After using about 3 pounds, we just couldn't drink it any more. I...
This coffee is great! The flavor is bold but not bitter. This one is very much a dark coffee. I save so much money making this at home rather than going to a coffee shop. I like that is comes fresh roasted in the whole bean. I know its fresh because some of the grounds lightly clump to the grinder when I dump them into the brew basket. I love the strong aroma of the coffee before and especially after grinding, but my wife does not. My point is you must be a fan of very dark coffee to throughly enjoy this coffee. I love it and to keep it fresh because it comes in a non resealable 2 lb bag, I keep it in a ziplock bag in a dark cupboard, one that I only use for coffee, because the light is not good for your beans. 2 lbs is large amount of coffee, depending on my amount of drinking each month of week I have had times where I have ran out before my next delivery and I have had only a half of a pound used when the next 2 lb box arrived. There are other variety of coffees from this same...
