Loved the coffee, but thought I had ordered decaf, so had a sleepless night.
I enjoyed this coffee at full strength, but prefer a darker roast.... I use it with my Espro P7 and the flavors are wonderful.
Red Rock Roasters Espresso Strata is described as a medium-dark roast. For the 4 decades I've been drinking coffee, I've stuck with dark roast beans, and I realize that by so doing, I've been missing out on flavors that are said to be lost in the roasting process. So I was curious to discover how I might respond to a highly rated medium-dark roast such as Espresso Strata. And I'm impressed enough to realize that it's time for me to expand my coffee bean choices beyond dark alone.
I had to experiment with my pour-over recipe to get the perfect cup of Espresso Strata. I tried different grinds with the Lido 3 manual grinder that I recently purchased from French Press Coffee and found that grinds a bit finer than what I typically use for very dark, oily beans works best for my palate.
I've prepared Espresso Strata via pour-over, using Hario V60 and Bee House drippers), and French Press, using a Bodum Chambord French Press (as sold at French Press Coffee), and with the right recipe the results are consistently delicious. I look forward to trying Espresso Strata with my Aeropress. And I look forward to trying other Red Rock Roasters beans in the future.
Very good coffee. Not quite as strong as I'm used to but a good chocolately flavor. Crema reminds me Lavazza. I use a semi-automatic Breville machine. Had to turn the grind up close to fine to produce well timed doppio. Included a picture but for some reason the website rotated left and I couldn't fix it.
Love this beans for nice dark chocolate notes. Also goes very well with my Aeropress. Thanks Red Rock Roasters!!!
