Medium Dark Roast
Medium Light Roast
I'm a coffee addict. I am always on the lookout for new flavors, blends and roasts to try. I received this selection of 4 coffees to try and I could not wait to try them.
Let's start with the Espresso Roast. I really enjoyed this coffee as a drip cup even though it is an espresso roast. It has a bold flavor that isn't as overpowering as some other darker roasts, and it also has a subtle undertone of fruit, which is quite interesting and satifying in a coffee. This roast is a must try for those who enjoy a dark espresso but want a little less of the heavy, dark flavor.
The Medium Dark Roast is exactly the way it is described, balanced with a hint of raisin and a little sweetness. I have found myself drinking this roast more than once a day because it is so deliciously satisfying. I haven't had a medium dark roast this good in quite some time. I am really enjoying all this coffee has to offer.
I find myself having the Medium Light Roast more with different desserts. It has a nice, yet light caramel flavor and it goes perfect with other sweet treats. The description of this coffee says it is "silky smooth" and I must agree with this statement. This coffee goes down very smooth and not at all strong or harsh.
The Signature Series is different throughout the year so you get to experience different blends every time. This time around the signature series was a medium, maybe dark roast with a strong flavor. It was really great for early mornings when I needed a good quick pick me up.
These coffees were really great blends and roasts and if you are a coffee lover like me you definitely need to check them out at the links below!
