This coffee rocks! Extremely well-balanced, with a solid core of roasted caramel from which flare subtle high notes - an acidic bite and a plum-like fruitiness. This coffee is warm, smooth, comforting, and I can't get enough. Highly recommended!Submitted 5 days ago.
Great body, was a big hit here at home!Submitted 5 days ago.
First time I brewed this I was blown away. It has a rich body but not heavy, it's so easy to drink. Love love love this coffee.Submitted 10 days ago.
Sweet and smooth, with a mild spice, this is a well-balanced everyday coffee.Submitted 14 days ago.
Brewed in my French press. Extremely drinkable, but not the same depth of flavor of the previous Villa Maria batch (which was one of my faves!) Would absolutely drink again, but wouldn’t go out of my way to seek it outSubmitted 19 days ago.
Rich, thick, smooth, and velvety, with a burst of sweetness and mild piquancy. Good stuff.Submitted 20 days ago.
Prettyyyyy prettyyyyyy pretty good
This bean is good. Prettttty good. Would recommend. I just put this in my queue for a round 2, which I don't typically do - I enjoy new surprises and let the Club choose for me. But this is too good to pass up.Submitted 23 days ago.
This one rates as one of my all-time faves. I'm picking up on a black currant sweetness/tartness that gives off a floral and blueberry scent. Undercurrents of earthy roastiness balance things out. There's also a hint of spice. Complex, interesting, smooth, and smells amazing. Don't miss this amazing African roast!Submitted 28 days ago.
Love these beans, they're fruity and smell delicious when you brew them. Definitely a slowly sip kind of coffee, exactly what you'd hope for with a nice Ethiopian bean.Submitted 29 days ago.

A real stunner!

Rally pleasant, lively and light
This has a great feel on the palate, low acidity, not too sour, and really pleasing.Submitted about 1 month ago.
Villa Maria is a winner - a smooth, round, relatively full-bodied coffee. It has a nice roasty backbone, redolent of dark chocolate, with complexity added through subtle mid and high tones. Roasty, sweet, subtly tart. Great everyday coffee.Submitted about 1 month ago.

One of my favorite African coffees
In contrast to many African roasts, Nimu Silas won't hit you over the head with acid and high notes. It's exceedingly well-balanced, with a nice robust backbone of caramel and subtle high floral high notes. A well-balanced finish rounds it out. Sublime.Submitted about 1 month ago.
I am late commenting on my favorite coffee on earth Lucretia Luna, Antigua, Guatemala from Lucretia de Rodas. My roast date was 10/31/2017 and start drinking date 11/04/2017. I still have a few of the beans that I saved. This is the best coffee I have ever had and I’ve drank coffee all over the world: Florence, Vienna, Rio, London, New York, Buenos Aires, Mazatlan...” Perfection.Submitted about 1 month ago.

Fantastic Burundi coffee
Extremely clean on the nose, light and floral as noted. First sip showcases the sweetness, but it's not overly sweet (artificial) or heavy (syrupy). Following sips bring out the plum or even a mango close to the pit kind of tartness, not sour. Great all around coffee for those who enjoy African coffees.Submitted about 2 months ago.
Good for lovers of Bright Coffees
Moderate high notes predominate. A bright tartness, not overwhelming, or pucker-inducing wakes you up. Not a lot of balancing low or mid notes. Acid, tart, sweet.Submitted about 2 months ago.
This is above-average, and average Mustache is really good. This bean is great with V60, but it is superb with Aeropress. I imagine that other brewing methods will yield similar deliciousness. I recommend this coffee.Submitted about 2 months ago.
Very good Coffee
Well-balanced between high and low notes. Not the most complex coffee, but it's highly enjoyable. A great everyday coffee.Submitted 2 months ago.
A nose of molasses and citrus is borne out in the flavor of this good brew. Complementing this subtly sweet molasses backbone is a muted grapefruit tang. Well-rounded: roastiness, sweetness, tang. A very good coffee, but again (as with prior weeks), a bit subtle. To fully appreciate the complexity of flavors, I'd recommend tossing in an additional scoop of beans above and beyond what you'd normally brew.Submitted 2 months ago.
Solid if unspectacular
Tasting notes (tart cherry, spicy currant, and milk chocolate sweetness) are tasty but a bit subdued. Grind more beans per cup of water than you normally would to maximize this bean.Submitted 3 months ago.
I loved this coffee, it was almost a perfect tasting coffee for me. Mine had a less of a chocolate flavor and more fruit flavored, I got hints of berry.Submitted 3 months ago.
Several of my cups have opened with a little bit of tea-like dryness. The fruit notes are super evident and very very tart. Bitter, more "classic" body is present in a moderate amount. I've even picked up some toasty caramel flavors at times. Quite a lot going on and none of it bad. Worth picking up if you're a fan of naturals and not averse to some darker-than-fruity flavors in your cup.Submitted 3 months ago.
Bright and acidic, Egu Abaya gets your attention from the first sip. I'm picking up on strong notes of blueberry reinforced by a deeper, robust cocoa backbone. Excellent selection for those seeking a classic example of an Ethiopian bean or for those who enjoy bright, fruit-forward coffees.Submitted 3 months ago.
Good, serviceable decaf
I don't drink a lot of decaf, but in the extreme seasons I like an afternoon or evening cuppa (cold brew for summer, nice & hot for winter). I enjoy this one.Submitted 3 months ago.
Oh how I love this one!
I enjoy nearly all MCC coffees, but there are a few that are absolute standouts for me. This is one. I normally drink about 12 oz. with creamer in the morning, & am good for the day. This one was so good that I enjoy making another cuppa later in the day. Smooth & tasty.Submitted 3 months ago.
This one isn't a standout for me, but is pleasant enough. Very sippable.Submitted 3 months ago.
A Special Coffee
Our coffee tour continues, moving from Guatemala to Columbia with a noticeable change. La Ceja is a special coffee, with an intriguing nose and flavors that match. I'm picking up on high spice, pepper, and grassy notes built upon a robust backbone of caramel (burnt sugar). You truly get the sense that you are tasting the terroir from which this bean originates. Note - this does have some acidity (though nothing pucker-inducing), so if you're not a fan, or have a sensitive stomach, take this into consideration. In conclusion, this is a coffee to be savored. Enjoy!Submitted 3 months ago.
