Bitter but tasty!

Loved this coffee! Not one we’d have week after week because it is so acidic, but a good and welcome change up from the usual.

Good coffee

It’s good coffee. I look forward to drinking it. Black, pour over, of course.

Best Natural I've ever had!

We usually aren't a fan of natural coffees but this was amazing. Very tasty. Already looking forward to the morning cup tomorrow.

Sublime

Stupendous coffee. Not as light and delicate as I was expecting, given certain reviews. Complex and lively. One caveat: if you're not a fan of floral notes, this likely isn't the coffee for you.

This is a really good coffee

This coffee worked great as a pour over. I would recommend a higher temperature around 95 or 96C. The coffee has a really nice fragrance. This coffee is quite complex with a mildly acidic front, the peach accent running through with the kiwi accent sort of hiding or coming out at times. The coffee has a fairly light to medium body after the front and has a very delicious finish with the chocolate notes distinctive. It is a very clean tasting coffee. Really enjoyed this one!

Very mellow and flavorful

I'm not as sophisticated in evaluating coffee as some other users. However, I know what I like and this might be my favorite morning coffee. I tend to favor peaberry coffees and Vienna roasts. I don't find as many of those as I used to. I would definitely put this one on rotation.

Another Club Winner

Not picking up as much rich chocolate but I am picking up a smooth tasting cup of coffee with a bit of sweetness at the end. Another Ethiopian winner.

Superb

Fantastic coffee; this is about as good as it gets. Having received numerous coffees from the El Socorro farm over the years, I've come to count on them as one of the best at supplying archetypal Guatemalan beans - lush, rich, dense, and complex. Don't miss out!

Love this

The fruit notes are a bit darker, more like stone fruits. The acidity doesn't punch you right away, the molassesy sweetness lingers in a lovely way.

Smooth and interesting

Guatamala and Columbia seem to be my favorite growing locations thus far. This coffee is smooth and complex and is terrific with my Italian late night cupcakes. Highly recommend this coffee ! :-)

La Basa is the Boss !

This coffee was mellow and rich yet with no acid or bitterness. I had my aunt and cousin over for a visit and they sang it's praises too. I gave them my extra bag I had ordered and I was texted they love it still. Now I'm down to one bag but I feel good I gave them a great coffee and introduced them to the club. Very highly recommended!

Juicy and delicious

I wasn’t sure I’d like an Ethiopian since my favorites have always been Costa Rican or geisha varieties. Really enjoying the juiciness!

Well-balanced

Yes, it has big floral notes, and yes, there's a bite of acidity. However, counterbalancing this is a wonderful earthiness. Tasty, interesting coffee. However, if you prefer lower acidity coffees or don't enjoy a touch of sourness, this is probably not the one for you.

Smooth and very Tasty

This coffee had an aroma that filled up my apartment in a very pleasant way. The mouthfeel and taste are very nice. Berry sweet, and very lush and noticeable flavor and texture.

Rich, velvety cup

One of my favorite parts of the delivery is when I first open the bag and smell the fresh beans. Right away the fragrance when you open this bag is luxurious, a nice rich sweet coffee smell. The taste is everything the paragraphs above say. Probably the most accurate description I have read of one of their coffees. Rich sweetness and a hint of berry without being tart or bitter (must be what they call plum), a smooth cup the whole way through. And again, a to die for scent.

Smooth and Easy to Drink

It's a great, mellow cup of coffee. I can see this as an everyday coffee without getting bored. I'm picking up more peach/floral than cinnamon which for me is perfect. Nice work. Keep the hits coming.

Love this Coffee

Well-rounded and medium-bodied. A bit of brightness, a piquancy, and a touch of sweetness overlain on a grounded backbone of roastiness. Absolutely delicious. Easy-drinking, yet the complexity is there for those who look.

If your Ethiopian coffee came with a dimmer switch

A delicious, jammy coffee with a cool story about how the locals forage for these berries to create a communal cup. Kinda messed with my head, too, because my tongue had me bracing for an acidic punch that never landed. Perfect for a relaxing morning or days when you only need enough oomph get things done around the house.

Butterscotch

My first coffee from Moustache, but just, wow. An adventurous Ethiopian. It's extremely fragrant — when I first opened the whole room was filled with butterscotch caramel smell (which is surprisingly not as heavy in the taste), then when I grind it, it had some floral spices come out of it. Not extremely unconventional, but your interesting comfortable morning coffee... it takes you places, ya know? And the feel on the mouth was chocolate creaminess, and mellow citrus. As it cools down it gets sweeter. Loving it.

Can I get this every month???

Amazing taste and finish. Bold flavor and smooth taste. My wife asked if we could just get this bean every month! (So can we?)

Big Fruit

Agree with some other reviewers that this is very reminiscent of an Ethiopian. Big fruit aroma right out of the bag, just grinding the beans gives you a good idea of what to expect. Both pour over and drip have produced excellent brews, with a bright and juicy berry note leading the charge with a really nice balance of sweetness/acidity rounding out the cup. If you haven't tried it yet and like Naturals, get a bag before they run out.
