This is, in my humble opinion, the Val Kilmer of Batman. The soul of the idea is great – for lattes, espresso, cappuccino – but for a french press coffee I would prefer George Clooney. This coffee has a caramely sweet tone with a crisp body that coats the tongue. It’s lingering taste is one that I would prefer to let go of (as I would the same with “Kiss of a Rose” but I sound just like Seal).
While all of my descriptive emotive words sound like a pleasurable tasting experience I would ask you to mind the fact that it was designed and created for an espresso pull not a press plunge. The best way to enjoy this roast is as a double espresso with two raw sugars. Give that a try and then you will 100% agree with me as everyone always does.
