I've ditched Charbucks and am now a LOYAL follower and admirer of this coffee. I have yet to try other roasts but this is my current favorite. I like it so much I've bought another few pounds as Christmas gifts.
The espresso within gives it a smooth "jolt" I don't normally find in espresso roasted blends. The light roast combined with espresso beans gives the cup just enough punch to wake you up but not enough to leave you "jittery."
Best Practices: I purchased a cheap burr grinder to properly grind the beans. While you CAN use a blade grinder, the burr grinder makes the taste of the coffee more consistent. I even use this coffee in my espresso machine which produces flavorful and aromatic shots perfect for a red or black-eye morning start.
This blend is the perfect starter roast while you explore the other varieties Raphael's offers. I no longer leave my house for coffee shops anymore because I make a much better coffee at home.

Raphael's has a new loyal customer. This coffee is fantastic...it has excellent flavor as well as the kick in the butt you need in the morning. I also selected the coarse grind for french press and it's absolutely perfect. But more importantly, I'm incredibly impressed with their service. They came highly recommended from a friend, and I now have recommended them to everyone. Thank you!
