Another winner

Tasting notes were spot-on. Nose is mild floral. Upon tasting, sweetness hits first, rounding into a deep cocoa and stonefruit finish. Mild floral notes. Good complexity but easy drinking.

El Jefe Yirgacheffe

I experienced overtones of lime and grapefruit lending way to mild floral undertones. A perfect example of the excellence of coffees produced in the Yirgacheffe region. Ground with Comandante C40 MKIII and brewed with Hario V60 utilizing the 4:6 method as developed by Tetsu Kasuya.

Magnificently Mellow

This is a mellow coffee. That is not to say the flavors are muted. They are there and present as a mild nuttiness with subtle undertones of coconut milk. I especially appreciate this coffee as one that is great to introduce the uninitiated into the world of specialty coffee.

Great Coffee - Didn't know what to expect, happily surprised

The Estrella Divina was a solid experience for me. At first I thought I did something wrong in my aeropress, because it looked a very light translucent color, but when I tasted it, it tasted rich and and properly made. Normally I use a dark roast, so that might explain it. I used a fine/very fine grind for mine, paired with an aero press. 14g of coffee with 140g of water at 190 F. Tried some minor temp/coffee variations with no significant differences. A solid experience.

Nutty and nice

When I first ground this one, the nutty scent was very pronounced. Which didn't come across near as much in the aroma or the taste of it once brewed, though it was still present. And, more importantly, it's a great sip.

Divine!

Possibly my favorite Moustache coffee so far. Great rich flavor, no bitterness or what I call "graininess".

Best coffee I've ever had. Literally addicted

I’ve been drinking this coffee from Moustache Coffee Club all week and I have to say, it might be the best coffee I’ve ever had. So smooth (not bitter in the slightest), a little nutty, with hints of coconut. I sound like an advertisement, but I’m really here to mourn that it was the last of the beans this morning. Here’s to getting addicted to rotating coffees.

Great go to

This is my first “classic” roast from Moustache and I really liked it. I have been brewing in a French press and it makes a very easy sipping light/medium cup. I did up the amount of grounds to get a richer flavor. Very smooth and mellow. Not bright or fruity like some of the other roasts.

Delicious

Flavors all came through well - even just using my Keurig. Smooth flavor, not bitter. Really enjoyed this one.

Excellent and Different

Really enjoying these Peruvians. In my experience, Vista Alegre is deep and dark. Notes of cocoa and caramel nicely balance the cup. Rich and smooth with a subtle black currant undernote adding a touch of tartness and fruitiness. For lovers of classic roasts, this one is a must-purchase.

Good Batch

I liked this round of the Ethiopian-originated beans. It was fairly balanced in acidity and flavor. However, I’m a seeker of more floral aromas and taste.

Fabulous!

I think this is my favorite coffee from MCC. I love to smell it before I grind, then after I grind, and finally breathe in the aromatic brew in my cup. There is a nice chocolate and subtle coconut flavors. Looking forward to my next cup!

Nice coffee, a bit light on the palate

Smooth and creamy coffee, with subtly sweet notes. Peach, stone fruit definitely there. Like some of the others on this post, I also got a bit of a lighter cup than expected - 45mg to 720 (1:16 ratio), ground in Baratza encore, brewed in Chemex. Could be the washed process for the beans? To be fair, my grinder may need some maintenance (though usually grinds finer than I expect which wouldn't produce the lighter roast I got), and I tend to prefer a bit more acidic bite in my coffee, like other Ethiopias. Not quite my favorite so far. But a nice and flavorful cup.

Sweet & Smooth

It took me a few tries to get the grind right. But once I did, the sweet & crisp apple notes really came through with a nice bit of spice at the end. Really enjoyable cup of coffee! I'm using a plastic V60 with the 02 Hario filters. 20g coffee to ~330g total water. 50g bloom for 45 seconds. I'm not great at describing grind size but seems to fall between medium/fine - for reference my total drip time has been around 3:00 minutes including bloom using one continuous pour(James Hoffman technique).

Delicious

Black tea and chocolate are spot-on for me. Not getting a lot of peach, but I'm picking up on a subtle floral note that comes through in the nose as well. This one is smooth, and sweet - a well-balanced and delicious coffee.

Good cup of coffee!

Estrella Divina is a solid coffee. No bitterness in the coffee whatsoever, and I really like the berry / caramel notes. Although, the flavors are not as bold as some other Moustache coffees I've had. Overall, another great selection by Moustache!

Tasty

Was looking forward to this one, but was let down a bit. Don't get me wrong, it's great coffee, but for the Tasting Series, my standards are higher. For me, Dimma was a bit lacking in complexity and didn't seem as "special" as I was hoping it would be. If this had been part of the standard membership, I'd have given it 4.5 stars for it's luxuriant smoothness and drinkability, but for the much more expensive Tasting Series, it's 4 stars from me.

Is drinking coffee that tastes like tea weird?

The MCC description is spot on - The black tea is really pronounced and the peach is there too. I didn't get as much of the chocolate, but I guess that's why it's subtle. It's a yummy coffee, very mellow and smooth, but with some really interesting flavors.

Excellent Ethiopian!

The write-up is dead on, this is an excellent, smooth washed Yirgacheffe with juicy peach and milk chocolate creaminess shining through. It’s a lovely sipper that I will enjoy as long as it lasts. Good stuff!

Once I sifted out the fines this was great

I make this as a pour over with paper filters, Baratza on 6. I had to sift out some fines to brew it this way but its worth it.

One of my favorite Moustache coffees to date. Very nutty aroma with a subtle peanut butter/coconut flavor.

Estrella Divina

Love this coffee and the Moustache Coffee Club. Im new here and the beans are freshly roasted and delieveried. I also got the Aeropress and I've been experimenting and I love the inverted method. If you haven't tried this check out the "how to brew" section on the Moustache Website. There are also tons of YouTube videos with great recipes.

Robust Indonesian

Great to have Indonesian beans in the mix. Really been enjoying these. Robust and deep, with a sweetness throughout. I'm getting a bite of spice. Not picking up on peach or chardonnay notes though. Very low acid. Very smooth coffee. Would work well as a Classic Roast.

Well balanced, great aroma

I love waking up to my automated grind & brew machine sprinkling the air with this fruity aromatic coffee. It tastes great and is one of my favorites.
