Coffee of the Month (Whole Bean Only)
Received my beans in a very timely manner. They are quite fresh and the aroma is worth the price alone. I use a Bialetti Mocha Pot. I find the flavor to be quite satisfying, and the chocolate tones are very predominate. Milk really smooths it out. I make Cappuccinos using Half-&-Half and the coffee flavor is still intense with lots of rich flavor. I would buy these beans again in a heartbeat.
The description is over-amped and unnecessarily embroidered. The coffee is fine and tastes good but the description sounds like a sommelier's ode to an expensive wine.
Very good expresso roast coffee. My wife have tried too many coffee roasts to count and have found one we truly both loved!
My wife and I enjoy this blend. It is not overpowering (too strong), as my wife prefers what I would call a medium/dark roast.
I order these beans on a regular basis, as they are the only coffee that I use. That should speak for itself.
This coffee was excellent. I was surprised as I usually do not like espresso. I will purchase this again. Thank you.
A very smooth, rich flavored coffee. Great any time of the day!
So sorry this is a Christmas gift so have not tried the espresso yet!! But, I'm sure it will be as delicious as all your other coffee's.
Nice rich, but not bitter blend for those who like dark roast in a blend.
This coffee is so rich, complex, and deep in flavor. A good brew to get one through the day's activities.
I've been using top rated coffee bought online for my espresso machine, but Espresso Classico is the new hands down winner. My coffee of choice from now on. Hat's off to the Monks!
I have tasted many flavors of coffee from Mystic Monk, but this is quickly becoming my favorite. The flavor is wholesome and rich, but not overwhelming. Although I add a little almond milk and stevia, for those who drink their coffee black, this is the one for you!
Always a delight for a coffee drinker. Have been drinking this coffee for over 15 years I believe.
Espresso Classico is my go to coffee. Just smelling the beans makes me want a cup, but be careful before you know it you'll be enjoying 2-3 a day.
ONly complaint, last bag I ordered the beans seemed a bit dry compared to the usual oily aromatic beans.
I brew this in a Bialetti percolator. The aroma really knocks you back, but the taste is surprisingly smooth. A word of warning, though: either the oil content or coarseness of the grounds cause trouble with an automatic espresso machine, as the water has a tough time getting through. Other than that, I couldn't recommend this product enough!
Our home-brew espresso machine was getting jammed when we were using Espresso Blend beans. We switched to Espresso Classico and have not had a problem since. The Espresso Blend beans appeared to contain a higher oil content than those of Espresso Classico, and that likely made the difference.
I used to drink Lattes or Americanos and assumed french-press or pour-over espresso coffee could not be good. Thought it took an espresso machine to enjoy espresso. Wrong, I was wrong, wrong, wrong. Mystic Monk Classico Espresso coffee made in a french press or pour-over cup is the best, richest, purest, most enjoyable coffee imaginable. It's wonderful by itself first thing in the morning, or along with a simple piece of toast. It would be perfect with a dessert or as an after dinner cup. I drink mine black and from a French press but can see it brewed and / or with cream or cream and sugar. Classico Espresso made it possible for me to kick "coffee houses" and their inexcusably expensive, burnt espresso drinks to the curb. I owe you, dear Monks!
I ordered both the espresso and the espresso classico. Both were good, but this one was much smoother and had a nice crema. I make it in my Italian moka pot and it reminds me of the Kimbo coffee that we used to buy when we lived in Naples, Italy. Wonderful!
A lot of Espresso is acidic and the aftertaste doesn't help. This one is smooth and it tastes great. I highly recommend it for anyone. I've only used my French Press to make it. It is definitely worth the purchase.
Got this a couple of weeks ago and thought I'd leave my impressions here. Made it using my Ascaso espresso machine. Took a while to dial in the right grind and dose amount, but when I did.. WOW! Hard to describe the intense fruit/woody notes and chocolate tones right off the bat, but it reminded me of a traditional Italian espresso. The crema was excellent, and it had a bittersweet note that was very strong at first, but backed off nicely before it became too bitter. Malty aftertaste was still with me 20 minutes after drinking. Good, syrupy body too. Sweetens a little in milk and makes a good capp, but I like the straight shot better. Going to be a regular on this one.
