Excellent Columbian Coffee

This is one of my favorite coffees. There is lots of subtle complexity and very nice body. The finish is lasting and delicious. I look forward to each cup twice a day!

Mild and subtle

No note dominates the taste. First cup gently draws you in, while the second cup makes you mellow

Great Change of Pace

Feel lucky to say this but I like the change up from the normal Ethiopian beans. This is a coffee that taste good from start to finish. What I really like is the exchange below between MCC and a subscriber - the idea to change the grind setting based on origin of bean is something I (a novice that likes good tasting coffee) had no idea about. Thank you for that information.

Amazing

Delicate and full of flavor at the same time. The fruity aroma of the beans really matched the flavor of the brewed coffee- which isn’t always my experience with coffees. My favorite so far.

Great coffee

Sometimes I brew this one and it's just incredible. It has a nice body of bitterness underlying the flavor that I find delightful. On other occasions, though, it comes off more acidic and less well rounded. Overall, a very good coffee.

Another winner

Well-balanced acidity, sweetness, and underlying roastiness. Smooth texture. Not too heavy or light. Great coffee.

Better with a finer grind

A revision of my previous rating, this coffee is improved by a finer grind. It's still not the best coffee, but it's no longer weak or acidic. It's full bodied coffee, just not my favorite.

Drinkable, but not exciting

This wasn't my favorite. With my normal ratios, it comes out a bit weak and acidic. I tried brewing it stronger, but still wasn't quite feeling it. It's still good enough to drink, but I do this one with cream.

Both bright and rich!

Got behind on my subscriptions, finally got to this...made the first cup with an aeropress. So unique, the combination of the deeply rich almost fudgieness and the bright tart strawberry makes for a cup like no other. Looking forward to try as espresso. After a handful of shipments, it's interesting for me to realize that every coffee has hit my pallette in a way that shifts what I thought coffee could taste like. Before I would've said I want my coffees to be mainly deep and chocolately, and although I still like those notes, there's a whole spectrum of flavors and textures that I had been missing. It's also shifted my morning experience from guzzling a mug down so I can cope with the morning to, when time permits, settling in to really experience the flavors and savoring each sip.

Amazing!

This was a superior coffee bean! We were still talking about it after we had brewed our last cup. The acid, fruit, and sweetness were well-balanced. 3 ounces was not enough!

Amazing Coffee

Right up there with Suke Quto for my favorite of 2021 thus far. Las Mangas is fascinating - bold flavors yet subtle nuances to uncover beneath. Well-balanced but very complex, taking you on a roller-coaster ride of flavors. Pleasant aftertaste that really lingers. This is one to savor.

La Virgen #1

Another absolutely delicious Colombian from Moustache, La Virgen has a unique, sweet/tart burst of flavor right from the get-go. This coffee is smooth, balanced, and easy to drink. I love the unusual flavor profiles that the specialty coffees from Moustache provide; they are always interesting and a joy to drink! If you are skeptical of light roasts, give this one a try.

Too good to use cream

While I consider the mark of a good coffee to be that it is enjoyable to drink black, I enjoy drinking my coffee with cream (not cream-ER, mind you). This coffee was so good black, however, that I never drank it with cream as I thought the cream would only detract from it. :)

Really Good Coffee and Nice Balance

This is a delicious and rich coffee. I have been brewing it in the mid range around 201 to 203 and that seems to work good for it on a Kalita Wave pour over. This coffee has a good body. I was kind of surprised how rich and medium bodied to almost a more heavy body this has for an Ethiopian. It does have a black tea type note, a subtle peach that I could taste in the middle and on the finish, and also this coffee has a very nice lingering chocolate finish. Definitely enjoyed!

Very interesting coffee

Love this coffee. It's extremely well-balanced, with moderate complexity. Mouthfeel is deep and round, mainly rear and mid-mouth with a burst upfront. I'm getting a sweet burst initially that rounds into a toasted malt flavor that's delicious. Good level of acid without being overpowering - hits you at the rear-sides of your tongue. Flavor really lingers. This is a coffee to savor. Would work well as a Classic roast. I may pick up more of this.

She loves it!

Personally, I prefer dark roast and chicory blend coffee, but my wife likes a lighter roast, she absolutely loves this! I will have to say, it is quite flavorful, but honestly, the reason I get Moustachcoffeeclub offerings is just for my wife. She is an RN in our local ICU, and the coffees you present are a true bright spot in her life, thank you for helping me to help her have more pleasure in life (-;

Beautifully bright coffee.

I really enjoyed this as a pour-over and experimented with temperatures ranging from 200F to 170F to bring out different characteristics in the coffee. In both cases the coffee shined and left me wishing I had more to brew!

It grows on you

Wasn't a big fan of it in the first brew when I made an iced pour-over. Couple days later, making a hot pour-over, the sweetness blew my mind :)

Don't love naturals, but this was decent

We have enjoyed drinking this. I would not normally choose a natural process, but this was okay. Not too funky.

Deep, rich scent

The olfactory pleasure of this coffee is matched by a rich, roasted taste. I really enjoyed this coffee.

Stupendous

A bean that just keeps getting more delicious as you drink it. Initial impression was underwhelming. The smell didn't blow me away and even the first few sips were kind of bland. But as I kept drinking, I just couldn't stop. It's sweet, fruity, complex and full without being overly acidic. It's one of the best coffees I have ever had and the best one in recent memory. My inlr regret is that I didn't get more. Loved it!!

Very nice

make affogatos for some friends and the coffee was so perfect for it. Also just to drink it is very smooth and delicious when I use my steamed almond milk in it.
