    This dark roast espresso made of Uganda/natural Sidama was unique for me. It had an incredible combination of flavors, characterized by its rich, nutty profile and deep chocolate notes. The nuttiness provides a solid foundation, complemented by the depth of the chocolate, which is reminiscent of a high-quality dark variety.

    The inclusion of smoky elements and a variety of spices adds an interesting dimension to the espresso. These flavors contribute to its complexity without overpowering the core notes of nut and chocolate. The spice, in particular, is noticeable but not dominant, offering a subtle enhancement to the overall taste. I thought it was notably spicy and peppery in a dynamic way.

    The espresso strikes a balance between being bitter and sweet. This balance ensures that no single aspect is too prominent, allowing for a more nuanced tasting experience for the spice and touch of smoke.

    One of the standout features is the finish, which is characterized by a clean, lengthy chocolate linger. This aftertaste is not only pleasant but also adds to the espresso’s appeal by leaving a lasting impression.

    Overall, this espresso offers a well-rounded and complex flavor profile. It successfully combines rich, nutty, and chocolatey notes with a hint of smokiness and spice, resulting in a balanced and enjoyable espresso suitable for a variety of palates.

    Simple, inexpensive clean medium breakfast blend that is very smooth and easy to drink. Lightly nutty, slightly herbaceous, and naturally gently caramel sweet.

    While nothing jumped out at me flavor wise it passed my central CT car test, meaning I enjoyed it enough to drink the whole cup on the way to NYC.

    A satisfying cup but I’d say go for the impressive dark espresso at VCR if that’s your thing.
