Delicious!

It really did taste of cola. It has a natural processing flavor. Yum.

Best Mustache Coffee Yet

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.

One of my perennial favorites

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. =)

A great catuai bean

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!

El Durazno #2

El Durazno #2

Yummy!

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!

TS: Astrid Medina

Hands down... one of the most stellar TS coffees I've had in a while.

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.

Really good!

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.

A Good Kenyan

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.

Hambela Wamena #1

A truly great cup of coffee!

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!

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.

Powerful aroma, powerful taste

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.

Bomba De Fruta #3

Just an amazing coffee!

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!

Just plain delicious

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.

Bomba De Fruta #3

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.

Classic Kenyan with Grape Explosion!

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!

Some of the best I've ever tasted

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.

Delicious, fruity, full-bodied

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.

Love this one

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.

Light and tea-like

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.

Excellent and perfectly roasted

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!

Natural for people who don't like naturals?

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.
