Some comments and feedback from our customers.

Delicious

Drinks like a robust black tea, but with all the best coffee flavors. Fruity and bright without being too acidic. Hint of cocoa. The beans smelled deliciously of what I can only describe as butterfinger.

Very smooth--enjoyed this one!

My husband said it worked well for making cappuccinos, and the flavor was very smooth and pleasant--not bitter at all. Highly drinkable!

Best Ethiopian Ever

As a long-time fan of Yirgacheffe coffee, this is perhaps the best Ethiopian coffee that I have ever tasted, so subtle, lemony, and floral. Outstanding! If a Reko smallholders lot comes around again, buy it!

Gora Kone

Gora Kone

Luscious Ethiopian

This Gora Kone is a rich and chocolatey Ethiopian with a subtle acidic pop--lime is a good descriptor. It's fun to compare the taste profiles using different brewing methods. Moustache coffees rarely disappoint, and freshness always matters.

Delicious!

Has that wonderful warm cocoa, almost peanut butter candy, rich body. Great as pour over but really nice as an espresso in an iced latte with whole milk. Just a really great coffee.

Great classic coffee

Like the well balanced acidity, chocolatey, hint of citrus behind the sweetness. Great choice for those who need a break from the brightness of the more exotic varietals.

Reminded me why I love washed Ethiopians

The title says it all. I've had some good washed Ethiopians in the last year from the club, but nothing outstanding (some a bit too high on the black tea flavor) - until now. This has all the flavors I love in a washed Ethiopian coffee, perfectly balanced in one blissful cup. Yes, I said blissful. Lovely stuff.

First foray into decaf

This was surprisingly good. It's still noticeably different in that way decaf is, but still pleasant

More please!

This is also another one of my favorites! The whiskey bitters + slight dark chocolate (aka rooibos/nectarine) aroma and taste are wonderful.

Excellent, clean, balanced, very drinkable

I really love Kenyans and this Ugandan Coffee reminds me of them in the best ways: very clean, smooth flavor. The stonefruit notes mentioned above are there, but they are not overpowering. The same with the bitters. This is just a tasty, well-balanced coffee. I really hope we get more from Uganda in the future. Thanks MCC for bringing this one!

Great espresso

Haven’t really had the chance to sit and enjoy this one yet , but the first few shots were very unique. It does not come off as immediately berry forward, sometimes I get hints of like a cinnamon roll on the nose but not the taste. This one has a nice amount of body to it as well.

Exceptional Ethiopian

While I haven't reviewed Moustache coffees for a while, I must comment on this exquisite Kello Haro Sorsa from Ethiopia. It is jam-packed with subtle fruit flavors, deep, clean, complex, and absolutely delicious--a joy to roll around in your mouth. Veteran club members know how great that first brew-from-the-bag is, and this one will knock you over. I used a pour-over this time, but any brewing method will do. In my many years of drinking coffee, this might be the best Ethiopian that I've ever tasted. Bravo Hambela Bedessa, bravo Moustache!

This is an exceptional geisha. Full on floral aroma. A hint of bergamot that keeps linger on. Too bad we have to wait until the next time to get more.

It's geisha and it's delicious

Geishas have a very distinctive aroma and taste. It's very hard to describe the taste, but it's geisha. This coffee is not as strong in the geisha taste, but it is still very delicious. Moustache Coffee introduced me to geishas and this is the kind of coffee that I get a description for.

The answer to boring coffee (ordered 3x!)

I would caution that if you are someone who prefers clean, sweet-washed coffee, El Encanto #3 may not be your 'cup of tea'. However, this coffee is definitely worth trying for those who are open to trying new things and enjoy exploring different flavors. It's a great example of the exciting and ever-evolving world of specialty coffee. Overall, I highly recommend this one to anyone looking for a departure from the usual coffee flavors. It's a coffee that genuinely showcases the artistry and creativity of the roasters and farmers who produce it, and it's an experience that every coffee lover should try at least once.

Superb Coffee

This is quintessential Moustache coffee - complex, delicious, with layers of nuance. Floral and fruity, light acid, but with depth and grounding. This one doesn't float away into the ether. I don't give many perfect scores here, but this one hit all the right notes for me, and I'm loving it.

Complex, medium-full bodied, with notes of peanut and stonefruit. A hint of floral flavor rounds things out. Delicious.
