TEST RESULTS


This is my second coffee from Coffee Manufactory and this one is quite a bit darker than the 01 Espresso. The Espresso Vision Roast Sensor scores this coffee at a 22 which is a medium light. I enjoyed this coffee most as a straight espresso. A light raspberry flavor warms with the first sip. Then is followed by a heavy black tea base with highlights of lemon lime. Personally I would have preferred it was roasted a little lighter, but it's dark enough for milk based drinks if that's your thing.
