Kenneth Davids,, October 2010.
Aroma: 8 | Acidity: 8 | Body: 9 | Flavor: 8 | Aftertaste: 9
Roast (Agtron): (40/52)


Notes: Family-owned Cafe Excellence is a roaster based in Pennsylvania with roots in the coffee business dating to 1958. Its mission is sharing "the wonderful experience of uniquely Micro Roasted Specialty Coffee with consumers."

Blind assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Deep and sweet-toned in the small cup: cedar, milk chocolate, orangy fruit. Medium-bodied but buttery and supple in mouthfeel. Very sweet finish with a pleasantly drying, walnut-like hint in the long. Seductive in milk, which pushes the chocolate forward and lightens and brightens the fruit.

Who should drink it: Complexity and balance in a fine medium-bodied espresso.

  1. Excellent

    Posted by Lee on 15th May 2016

    We found the RFA Espresso coffee beans years ago when trying to find good coffee beans at a reasonable price for our super automatic. My wife and I love the taste of this coffee. It's all we use.

  2. Great Coffee
