When my order arrived today I immediately ground a sample and pulled a shot of espresso with my twenty year old Gaggia. Great crema on the first try. That tells me the beans are quite fresh.
This is described as a dark roast. I'd describe it as something like "full city roast plus." It's dark...but not too dark. The beans are just to the point of releasing some oils, but not full on oily. The aroma upon opening the bag is great. And when grinding, that aroma just gets better.
Regardless of crema, aroma and appearance, the proof is in the tasting and I can only say that this coffee gets very high marks. It is rich, low acid coffee with a great mouth feel and great coffee flavor. I think it's well worth a try and personally I know that I'll be ordering it again.
After finishing this bag of Brazilian Dark I will probably try a bag from another part of the world. Brazilian coffee is mild and smooth whereas I prefer a coffee with more of an edge.
I have uploaded an image of the two roasts, the Italian Espresso on the left, the Super Dark Espresso on the right. Both are, clearly, Espresso roasts as evidenced by the surface oil on the beans. Both roasts are slightly unevenly roasted, the Italian Espresso more so than the Super Dark. Not clearly shown in the image is the fact that a small percentage of the beans of the Super Dark roast are starting to break apart, a consequence of exceeding the usual roasting temperatures of the so-called "second crack." So what? It indicates to me that the Super Dark roast beans have been roasted to a point beyond which further roasting would not be possible without destroying the beans (yielding a charcoal-like product). However, as noted, the added roasting has produced a more even dark roast which, in turn, has produced a coffee that is slightly more rich than the Italian Espresso roast. Here I would emphasize the word "slightly"; apart from a side-by-side sampling, I doubt I could distinguish one from the other on a day-to-day basis.
In a word, both roasts are superb and nicely priced. If I recall correctly, the Super Dark roast cost $3.00 more than the Italian Espresso roast, I should think a reasonable difference if one's palate is able to differentiate between the two roasts.
In either case, I think anyone who enjoys dark roast coffees or Espresso will be happy with either of these blends.Read more ›
Kudos to CBD for actually meaning what they say when they say "dark"! And the actual flavor, once you wrangle control of the strength back, is quite good. Just heed this fair warning: If you find yourself wondering what a 12-cup pot of espresso would taste like, this coffee is for you. Otherwise, you may want to try the regular Sumatra first.
