Roast: Medium to Dark
Flavor: Complex, deep, rich & aromatic. Flavors of vanilla, sweet dark chocolate, prune, light smoke. Not very acidic; just enough to keep things interesting through the long finish.
Keep in mind that coffee beans are an agricultural product and will vary from year to year.
UPDATE 3/6/2014: I have ordered these beans a couple times now & they still make a delicious cup of coffee.
UPDATE 6/11/2014: Ordered again & still delicious.
UPDATE 5/2015: Ordered again & still delicious.
UPDATE 9/2015: Ordered again & still delicious.
We drink coffee daily, but not in any large quantity, so when we do make a cup, it has to be great. We prefer to grind our beans right before brewing the coffee as it just yields a better result - and better still, it makes the whole house smell like delicious coffee before the water is even hot.
We have tried different coffees from different supermarkets, some obviously better than others, but never any quite as good as this. My wife usually drinks her coffee with milk and sugar - when drinking this, neither is really necessary, albeit, she still prefers it. If you're looking for a way to cut away some calories from your daily life, getting a coffee this good can help you do that.
Usually we would not buy into this whole, "shade grown", "volcanic earth" thing that many coffee producers advertise. However, we have been so fortunate as to actually visit Cafe Britt in Costa Rica, and if not the shade or the volcanic earth, they do something right. From growing the beans to slow roasting the beans, to quality control, everything is done with finesse.
For the fun of it, we mixed a small handful of these beans with our other preferred coffee bought in a supermarket here, to see if we could tell the difference, just from looks and smell - it took about 20 seconds to sort the beans back in their own piles. The Poas beans glisten (they're not "dry" like most other beans) and they have a deep brown color from the slow roasting, whereas most other beans are near black from roasting, creating a slightly bitter aftertaste.
We have also tasted many other variants made by Cafe Britt, and they all live up to the same standard. This really is fantastic coffee.
People love it, it is complex, medium-bodied, and not acidic at all. I love coffee but caffeine makes me terribly jittery, so I really only drink a little bit every morning. It needs to be really good since I can't drink much, I can barely control myself with this coffee.
I make it in an aeropress but it is excellent every way, french press, percolator, whatever. A+
