I had high hopes for this coffee based on the reviews but was let down. I picked up a can of this to have on hand incase I ran out of fresh beans for my grinder and I'm glad that I didn't get the more packs! Perhaps I got a bad batch since the reviews here are mostly positive but I found this to be incredibly bitter when making espresso in my Rancilio Silvia. I varied my dose, tamp, extraction time and temperature but nothing got rid of the horrendous, bitter/sour taste. After several unsuccessful attempts I pulled a shot using my fresh ground beans to see if I was doing something wrong and had a great shot right off the bat. Go figure. On the positive side the grind is fine and even enough for an unpressurized portafilter. This stuff may be fine for other brewing methods, I didn't try them, but I can't recommend it for espresso unless you really like bitter shots. ************************Perhaps I just like a darker roast, in the end I tossed it as I was unable to brew a drinkable shot. Try this instead: ( )
