It really did taste of cola. It has a natural processing flavor. Yum.
Coffee from Mustache is consistently good and I don't always take the time to write reviews, but this coffee is AMAZING! I think this might be my favorite coffee yet.
Whenever Justin's coffee shows up, I'm happy about it. I love his coffees. I do laugh, though, that his last name is always spelled differently every place it shows up on the card. =)
I do taste the raspberry and plum notes, enjoying this in the morning and for my afternoon cup. Balanced and reliable, enjoying having it in my rotation!
This is delicious full stop. Smooth, sweet, and juicy are good descriptors! The first few days I didn't get much apple, just a little bit in the acidity like the notes suggest, but now the apple is really coming through nicely on the nose, which rounds it out beautifully. The stone fruit is strong, but oddly, I don't get it much on the nose until the coffee is in my mouth - I can still tell it's the smell, but for whatever reason it's much more present for me at that point. I love that stone fruit aroma/sensation and it really sings here with the apple. Very pleasant, enjoyable cup!
The strawberry aftertaste was predominant, though the bright acidity at the beginning of the taste was like a little flavour explosion of tangy nectarine which just mellowed out into lingering strawberry and maybe honeysuckle.
Enjoying it in the morning (or afternoon) with my Chemex process
Love the brown sugar finish and warm spice notes
I was very excited to have this when I saw it on the website. Bomba De Fruta #1 was my favorite and best coffee I’ve ever had in my life and continues to be to this day. This batch was still really good though and for that it deserves all the stars.
Fruity. Light. I was gladly surprised at how much I enjoyed this coffee.
They tasted a lot like the Black Sphinx dates I had just ordered. They are great complements.
“Bomba de frutas”, indeed a perfect title for this coffee, so delicious fruity flavors, wish I could have this coffee everyday, forever🥰
Love the layered notes and I always gravitate towards a nice sour bite
It’s almost like a craft beer meets a coffee. It’s similar to the good smell of a brewery when you visit. It was exactly explained as in the notes. Quite terrific in my experience.
I have definitely drifted more towards washed coffees as time goes on, but this is fun to try. The taste really lingers.
Lately, I have sort of soured on washed Ethiopians, favoring the naturals by a good margin. Cups like this might close the gap! This is a clean, full, clear, refreshing cup. The peach notes shine; they give the cup a smooth, lightly fruity tinge. And, although I normally don't care for the black tea notes that washed Ethiopians often have, they work very well here, strengthening the body without overpowering the flavor and balancing with the peach harmoniously. Finally, the bright, tropical acidity washes the palate clean for an invigorating finish. Yum!
Rich, well balanced taste - bring back some more please!
really enjoying this
Really pleasant cuppa, no harsh edges at all
Complex, flavorful and well balanced. One of the easiest coffees I've brewed lately for a consistently great cup. V60 pour over 97° C 25:400 ~ 3 minutes brew time. Perfect.
Sometimes you get a coffee that smells fantastic after you grind it, but then fails to match the same intensity when you taste it. This coffee smells just as good as it tastes and will not disappoint you in any way.
Enjoyed immensely! One of my favorite of the washed variety.
I just loved this coffee the first time I opened the bag... I love Natural Coffees and this was exceptional. I tried all the methods I have and never disappointed. I ordered now more of this incredible coffee. Is sooo fruity, winey and sweet, and gets better with time. The roasting profile is perfect and even worked with my Gaggia espresso machine, resulting a bright and fruty cup with cranberries, stone fruit and dark cocoa flavors. Please, MC include more natural and fermented coffees for us!
Hey Mr. A.I. more like this one.
This is the epitome of classic coffee to me - chocolatey, creamy, rounded, with nice full body. I also love the caramel and baker's spice notes; it almost feels like desert, but without sweetness. Just a lovely cup, a pleasure to drink any time.
This is an absolutely delicious coffee--a true 'fruit bomb,' with clear raspberry notes up front and a very balanced, chocolate body at the finish. You'll need to go a long way to find a better tasting coffee from Central America. Long-time subscribers know that this is the kind of coffee that Moustache offers month after month. If you like specialty coffee that you can brew at home, this is the service for you.
Of all of the coffees I have received this one is by far the best and I hope I will receive more of the same or similar...I dont know why it is so much better. The description is right on and gives insight into the process, which can make the difference... More please!!!
Chelbesa #6 is by far the best coffee I have received...I hope I will receive more of the same or close...! Flavors were unique and complex...More please!
This is a pretty perfect embodiment of what I think of when I think of Kenyan coffee. It's bright with nice acidity and I'm definitely picking up the grapes as promised. MCC - Please get more of this - Or more like it!
A beautiful bean capable of rousing the deepest of sleepers from their long winter hibernation.
I've been a member of the coffe club for a couple of years now and gosh, this is one of your best. Every cup I've brewed I've thought, 'wow! This is delicious!' I agree with others that it is rich with blackberry aroma and flavor but not overwhelmingly so, that chocolately backing makes for a really lovely balance, with a smooth finish. I wish I'd ordered more.
But this one I do. FWIW I do a 1:15 pour over
Both of us said the same thing after the first day of brewing. We can taste all the flavors that the card/desciption highlighted. Very nice - really like the flavors. Nice work MCC!
I use a Chemex and this is one of my favorite bean. It is delicious and develops a complex flavor. It consistently pours a wonderful cup, pot after pot.
For years I have tried to find a Central American coffee that I enjoyed, and have usually been disappointed by the offerings of other vendors. Not so with this variety! It's wonderful enough to tempt me into experimenting with other Central American offerings from the Moustache Coffee Club.
Great aromatic natural bean
I love sharp, fruity coffees, and this one fits the bill. It has a juiciness that most coffees, even fruity ones, lack. The floral undertone let’s you know it’s an Ethiopian, and there’s some sweetness about it too. Very happy with this one.
Amazing and bright. Brewing aeropress 80F
This is a lovely coffee that shifts aromas appealing as it cools.
A rich, full-bodied delight! Loved the flavor and "syrupiness"
Amazingly layered and bright. I've often found Colombian coffees missing fruity notes that I love but this one delivers!
Very flavorful, but I do like my coffee a bit less tea-like and not as lemon-like. Otherwise, I think this coffee would be great for someone who prefers that type of coffee.
I bought this coffee for my birthday! So sweet and juicy! It was delicate, full of flavors, stone fruit, hibiscous, brown sugar and some spices.
Love this coffee! Bright and flourishing in every cup
This is the sort of coffee that I got into single-origins for.
Loved this. It was fantastic. Tried to get another bag and was disappointed it was off the list already!
So far brewed it aeropress, 88F under a minute.
The clarity is pretty strong on this coffee, many of the notes these coffees have are hard to distinguish. This origin is very good. Best one yet.
Delicious pour over!
I've had this twice now in espresso--the flavor of the espresso is really pleasant--and in a cappuccino or latte it's wonderful. Very drinkable. Glad I requested this one!
A wonderful dive into Moustache coffee! High quality to say the least.
I tend to lean to more cocoa flavors but really enjoy some good fruitier coffees. This one is very interesting and especially enjoyed how the flavor profile evolved as the temp cooled. Roasted perfectly in my opinion!
I am a big fan of naturally processed coffees but this one is unusual in a normal sort of way. It's a much more balanced sort of coffee. It still has some interesting bright fruit flavors more typical of naturals but with a smooth backbone sort of under-structures the coffee with a really nice full flavor. A really nice coffee.
