Very Good

The coffee was delicious, it has a great nutty flavor. It was more of a 'light' coffee, which was fine - but I do prefer a stronger/bolder bean. Overall, it has a very nice flavor.

Smooth, Fruity, and Honeylike Finish

This coffee has been great as a pour over. It has a very nice strawberry type accent, with a light to medium body and not so much acidity. It is a quite a smooth brew. I also get a bit of creamy accent with a very nice honey flavor. This coffee has a wonderful finish to it.

Nice coffee

Pretty delicious cup of coffee. My son said it was the best coffee he's ever tasted, but he's ten.

The best

Smoothest coffee to date from Moustache. Easy to drink, and quite light and refreshing.

Decent

Of all the Ethiopian coffees that came our way of late this one seems the least flavorful. A good coffee just not a wow I need to order another bag before it's gone.

Decent Cup

An overall mellow, balanced cup. I pick up on the chocolate and also a bit of nuttiness on the back end. Very pleasurable for a washed varietal!

Lives up to its name

Come for the fruit, stay for the acid. This one is not for the fan of traditional or classic roasts. This bad boy is big, bold, and ostentatious in fanning its feathers of fruit juice and acid. It's not balanced and its not trying to be. Not my cup of tea, but nice to try for a change of pace. If you're a fan of naturals and sharp, fruity high notes, you'll like love this, so add half a star to my rating in that case.

Exceptional Decaf

Sublime decaf. Surprisingly, I actually enjoyed this more than some of the regular, caffeinated Moustaches I receive. Do yourself a favor and get this coffee, even if you don't typically enjoy decaf. Brew a small pot in the afternoon and luxuriate in the lavish texture and taste. Great stuff.

Easy Drinkin'

Mellow and soft, San Luis is an easy drinking cup of coffee. It has a soft, almost pillowy texture and is extremely smooth. Subtle high notes round things out. This mug of coffee will disappear quickly without you knowing what happened.

Good Coffee, but uniquely non-acidic

Very floral/honey smell but the taste is perhaps too subtle for my palate. I am enjoying it nonetheless. I prefer higher acidity than this coffee, which truly is very smooth.

Incredible

These are the best naturals I've ever had. They are easily some of my favorite beans in recent memory. I was shocked by the aroma and flavor. Highly recommended!

Give Me More

As we shelter in place just outside of SF my better half yells down the stairs into my office. Did you try the coffee....it was #@$@! awesome. That's from a person that so rarely drops profanity. 4 for the last 4 weeks have been top notch. I assume this is roasting again although I missed the Monday order cutoff window.

Average tastes, with some opening brightness

Nothing spectacular about this cup of coffee. I brew using a Breville youbrew by the cup with filtered water, on average boldness and average strength. The resulting cup was...average. There are hints of lemon at the top. All in all a mild bright cup. I'm also used to strong berry flavors so it could taste more acidic to others who are used to a more classic flavor in coffee. I'd call it a good introduction for people looking to up the complexity of their cup without wading into the strange territory of "this is coffee?"

The best so far

This was my third shipment from Moustache, and the best by far. Very smooth, somewhat mellow, and none of the irritating qualities that put me off the first two. The chocolate and toffee qualities really came through, and a delightful aroma from the beans themselves. Not as dark a roast as I prefer, but in all, it's a winner.

Excellent Coffee

This is a real lovely blend. I don't usually taste the notes, but the pineapple was very much there.

Sparkling.

The fruit is right in front, and reminds me a bit of sour candy. I just really enjoy naturals. I would also like to second the note on the packaging: The new vacuum bags are very pretty.

It grew on me....awwwww couldn't resist.

But it really did. Whenever I try a new coffee I don't usually love it immediately and this was no exception. But ....for a natural process...it blossomed a little sooner. I like this one with a tad more water than usual. Perhaps 1g per 22-24ml rather than 20ml. Will try it as a pourover. If you really like natural process and fruity then you ought to love this. I lean to washed. It was great to try but probably won't buy it a second time. Liked it but not in love.

Smells so delicious

I never have experienced a coffee so distinct in aroma and flavor! Very prominent citrus flavor, I can definitely see where the pineapple note comes from. It does have relatively high acidity when brewed in a french press, which can have a drying effect on the mouth. I decided to try brewing cold brew — this coffee is truly meant for it I feel! The fruitiness came through without the strong acidity. If you want a coffee with a pow!, this one delivers!

Really delicious coffee with strong and great aroma.

This coffee is a great treat! It is indeed very fruity with the pineapple type accents. There is another very unique and distinctive aroma and flavor accent that I get after brewing, yet I cannot put my finger on it. It is an almost savory/salty? accent almost reminiscent of some root vegetable or something. Had good and pretty deep body as a pour over. Also works well as an espresso, but I have needed a much stronger ratio if using to make a latte, etc-aprx twice the coffee/water ratio. But if sone it is a really fruity good tasting latte.

Excellent Coffee

This coffee was such a good cup as a pour over. It had wonderful fragrance and nice body. Most of the good complex notes came out and the coffee had a distinctive flavor when hot, which tapered off and faded when the temperature went down.

So juicy!

I loved this one because of the burst of raspberry and citrus you get from the nose to the first sip. One of my favorites ever!

Unbelievable Decaf

After searching far-and-wide to find an exceptional cup of decaf coffee, my search has finally come to an end. This. Is. It. Seriously, the difference between this decaf and others is night-and-day (bad decaf pun non-intended). Preparation: Quick (2m extraction) pour-over on a course grind at 202°F with a 16:1 ratio was flawless.

Interesting Coffee

La Virgensota is intriguing, it tastes like a blend of dark and light roasts. As a result, you get the full, rich, roasty goodness of a classic roast, combined with the sweetness and hint of acid of a lighter roast. More difficult to discern some of the subtleties of the coffee due to the dark roastiness predominating, but this is an intriguing coffee nonetheless. Great everyday cup that doesn't demand too much from you, nice and smooth, rich and deep without being bitter.

Amazing

This recent shipment was the best so far. I mean all the coffees have been excellent but the La Virgensota was unique and so smooth. I’m going through it too quickly!
