I've been fortunate to play with this coffee on both a commercial machine and through 2 different types of home espresso machines and have managed to achieve similar results each time.

 

A whiff of almonds on the nose and touch of caramel as the shot makes its way across the tongue - think nutty sweetness, with very low acidity and lingering aftertaste (when extracted as a ristretto)

 

This coffee cuts through full fat milk surprisingly well but is a little lost in soy.

 

On each occasion I have had 7-14 day old coffee so it was in its prime.

 

Nicely roasted, a fraction darker than some Costa Ricans I have had, but this does not detract from the finish.

 

If you're looking for a single origin that does what it says on the bag then this coffee is one to consider.

 

Order from Londinium Espresso online

 

I found there was a decent level of crema in each shot, great of you're looking to practise your latte art...

Can only agree. It's an excellent bean and roast with an amazing almond aftertaste. The Londinium Costa Rica decaf is also absolutely excellent.

Michael, I have ordered (by necessity sadly) a 500g batch of the decaf. Do you find it meets with their declaration of being "indistinguishable from non-decaf"? I am yet to find a decaf that doesnt taste like monsooned malabar!

Edward, don't worry, you're in good company. I drink decaf only and can share your distress in finding good decaf coffee.

 

Have a look at this thread where we discussed decaf from James Gourmet.

 

The best I've have so far, and also the cheapest. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. I'll bet you won't notice it's decaf.
