Good taste

I really enjoyed the flavours. I like darker less acidic coffee and this was perfect.

I thought this was bad coffee until...

I brewed this coffee in the Aeropress using James Hoffmann's method. I tried everything from 80°C to 100°C and I just could not get the coffee to taste smooth. There was always too much acidity for me.

Then I started experimenting with the inverted method and stirring the coffee. I was skeptical that it would make any difference at all, but WOW! What a massive improvement in taste! It was such a good balance between acidity, sweetness, and bitterness. I could taste some caramel notes, and there was really nothing harsh to speak of.

Here's what I did if anyone wants to follow along.

- Inverted Aeropress. Push the plunger in to the 4 mark.
- 15g Turning Point ground at 15 clicks using Timemore Chestnut Nano (a fine grind. Not powder though.)
- heat water to 95°C for 200g pour. I use tap water through a Zero Water filter.
- start timer
- pour 100g water for about 15 seconds, then stir until 30 seconds.
- pour remaining 100g
- gently press out excess air after putting the filter cap on the Aeropress with a dry filter. You'll see the coffee start to soak the paper so you know when to stop.
- let brew until 2:30
- flip the Aeropress up onto your mug
- press for maybe 30 seconds. Just use the weight of your arm. No need to force. I pressed through the hiss.
- I added 40g french vanilla creamer by accident. I was going for 20g but poured too fast. It was still delicious! 😁
- to adjust the strength, I would probably choose to dilute the brewed coffee afterwards. I didn't find my cup to be exceptionally strong though. Just balanced.



Always my go-to

Tasty and Fresh!

Tasting notes were accurate. Dark chocolate notes with nutty undertones, my favourite! The coffee was close to its roast date (super fresh) and the quality was exceptional. I used this coffee for both espresso and Aeropress. Was enjoyable all around. Would definitely recommend, especially if you enjoy medium roasts.

Better than ever

I've ordered this in the past and loved it. After which I went back to lighter roasts. Coming back to this is sensational. Gives me straight chocolate covered almond vibes. LOVE IT

Really good for Vietnamese coffee

A nice staff recommended me this!!

I tried it for my Vietnamese phin filter and it turned out really good. Heavy body, little acidity. Highly recommended it.

Made me like darker roasts

I had always been under the preconception that darker roasted coffee tasted burnt and overly bitter, since thats what I would taste from medium-dark roasted coffee from chains. This coffee is actually mind blowing. Espresso or v60, black or with milk, I find myself enjoying it all the time. I even went ahead and bought the kg bag, and seems I am running out of it as well. If you want something approachable, that does a good job at hitting notes of dark chocolate and smooth earthy flavors, this is the one for you. Regardless, I think it's a safe option to have on hand for guests.
