Good Cup. Pungent and smokey, which I like, if dark roasted. Keep measure moderate.
New-ish to coffee but on a quest to find my favorite bean. I've been trying two at a time from Rhoads all Spring and and Summer, and for me Indo (in the medium/dark roast) is the best bean in the world so far. Here's how I use them:
-Primarily for cold brew AND iced coffee (there is a difference)
-It is still delicious for hot coffee, but I don't drink hot beverages often.
-The dark roast is good, but I think medium/dark is best.
-All of this should be interpreted through the fact that I greatly dislike fruity/floral coffees like the Tanzanian Peaberry. If you like fruity/floral, this may not be the bean for you. If you like earthy/chocolatey, I think you'll love this.
Other Rankings for Rhoads Coffees (all in my preferred medium/dark roast):
9.0: Peru Approcassi
8.0: Bolivian Organic
6.0: Honduras Marcala (getting too close to the fruity end of the spectrum for my preferecnes)
2.5: Tanzanian Peaberry (if you like fruity/floral, please disregard my ranking.....you will probably love the TPea).
These scores all reflect my preferred tastes, and the lower scores are not a reflection on Rhoads coffees. Again, if you are a fruity floral person, I'm sure Rhoads will suit you just fine :-)
I love your coffee. It always tastes rich and smooth.
This is really good coffee. I've ordered several different types from RhoadsRoast, but this one is my favorite. Smooth, fragrant, almost chocolatey. Not bitter or spicy. I'll be re-ordering this one.
