Wonderfully smooth and bright

I enjoy Yirgacheffe coffees from time to time, but they aren’t an everyday coffee for me. I get lots of bright lime notes and a strong vinous quality when brewed in my French press. This brew was exceptionally smooth and sweet, with a pleasant acidity. I highly recommend it. All-in-all, a very nice coffee with all the qualities you’d expect from a Yirgacheffe bean.

fresh, fruity, aromatic coffee

I LOVE this coffee! It's so fresh and aromatic, and so easy to drink. I definitely taste the fruity notes described. It's the best coffee I've ever had, and I'm obsessed!

Chocolatey, delicate, balanced, and complex

This is hands-down the lightest roast coffee I've ever had before...and it is now the best I've ever tasted. I was a little skeptical of how light (even being a fan of light roasts), but it seems to bring out the most incredible milk chocolate notes, with grape/plum almost tea-like body qualities. It's delicate and 'light' from a mouthfeel perspective (but might be due to my aeropress method), but it is sweet, subtle, pleasant - but don't let that misconstrue how deep and complex this is. Like most other coffees, this one seems to get more sweet, bright, and chocolatey as it cools. It has completely changed my perspective (previously not a fan) of central/south american coffees, and I can't wait to get another super-light roast like this. Thanks Moustache team!

Beautiful cup!

I’ve never tasted coffee like this. It’s a very clean cup of coffee. I taste hints of toasted bread and a finish of light sweet fruity notes.

By far my favorite coffee ever

I don't know how to describe it exactly but this coffee hit all the right notes for me. If I only had to have one type of coffee for the rest of my life, it'd be this.

Found the Technique!

At first, this coffee was very acidic and I could not distinguish much flavor at all on both pour-over and French Press. But I experimented and when brewed at 212C this coffee is very different and the flavors come out and the acidity is nice and not overpowering. I have been doing 21G/285mL. That really changed the outcome of the cup! It has a good medium body and a very nice lasting sugary (brown sugary) finish. I didn't tasye much floral notes. I think when brewed like this, some of that syrupiness comes out also.

Controversial

I was a three on this, but my lady friend said 5, so I took the average. That's consistent, she prefers the mellower stuff. This definitely benefits from sifting after going through my Baratza Encore (on 13). I've been using my Kruve with the 500um sieve to get rid of the fines before making it as a pour over. I lose about 10% which makes me think the club is in bed with "big sifter" but the coffee is still amazing so I'll allow it.

Dessert in the Morning

What a great change of pace with this Brazilian gem. Both of us took our first sips this morning and really liked the sweetness. Almost a bit like hot cocoa with a marshmellow added! Zero bitterness. Well balanced flavor throughout the cup. Even enjoyed a cup later in the day with a few ice cubes and a splash of Oatly.

Surprisingly Subtle, Complex and Satisfying

What a great cup of coffee. For beans that have been combined across a grower cooperative, but still single-origin, surprisingly subtle and complementary flavors. No loss of tartness or acidity to add complexity, with subtly (and not overwhelmingly) sweet flavors and balance throughout. Definitely taste the lingering maltiness, which gives additional complexity. Very complex and satisfying. Seems to get better with every sip.

Lightly roasted creamy dream

This is my first order from Moustache Coffee and the description of this bean and roast was perfect. I'm intending to learn my own taste and preference with really good coffee. While I thoroughly enjoyed this I think it is a bit light for my coffee taste. I look forward to my next roast.

Well-balanced and tasty

With a touch of bright and tart acidity, a pervasive sweetness, and a foundation of toasted malt, Agua Azul does indeed offer something for everyone. Fairly complex and very well-balanced.

Oh my gosh...

...is what I literally said when I took my first sip. We (my spouse and I) are beer people. He brews, I mostly just drink. When I read the description after I took my first sip, I immediately recognized the brewer's yeast flavor. It's not strong, but there is a bit of smooth breadiness (maybe? I am not good at describing flavors) that reminds me of a well brewed, extra balanced golden ale. It's true, it isn't the most complex coffee ever, but it tastes delicious. I probably wouldn't want to drink it alongside a super sweet pastry (because it is sweet), but on its own at my desk, it is an absolute delight.

Great cup overall, but some mixed feelings

I have a lot of mixed feelings about this coffee. I brewed a 24g/350ml @ 205ºF on a Chemex. It is delicate and light, the initial sip is very black-tea like with a light mouthfeel and a gentle ripe berry note. This transforms to a lingering caramel-creaminess. Overall it's a delicious and complex coffee, but I do wish the flavor had a little more punch.

Loved this one

My mom’s a picky coffee drinker and she was extremely impressed by the flavor and color of this coffee. Says it easily beats a lot of Pre-ground coffee she’s been enjoying and is better than her go-to cafe.

Solid

Tasting notes were spot-on for me, with very subtle spice notes towards the end, reminiscent of a mild "hoppiness" in beer. I also agree with Hovig's review regarding complexity and flavor prominence. Flavors here seem to merge into a whole and it's tougher to pick up on distinct elements. Regardless, this is a very enjoyable coffee.

Like the creativity.

Very good. I will say that, to me, it is very reminiscent of a natural when I take a sip.

Sooo creamy

On my third shipment and this is my favorite yet...my first cup of this was like that one in a 1000 cups. I was thinking about that cup all day. Can't wait for my next cup.

Like a nice red Rhone wine, this Ethiopian is a voluptuous, yet refined cup of coffee, big and sweet and round. It's delicious to drink--a French press really brings out the flavors in this one--a star find, and one of Moustache's best. Keep 'em coming!

This is the sort of coffee I love.

Great coffee pushing what can be done with coffee. This sort of coffee you don't see everyday and I loved it. Beautiful coffee.

I really really like this bean, but...

... I am not sure if I should give it a 5 since it’s not quite “to die for”. It is super smooth and delicious and hard to stop at only 2 cups a day. I’d definitely order this again!

Truly an Excellent Cup

Quite possibly the best coffee I've ever tasted. Eminently sippable and smooth. Pink bourbon does not disappoint.
