Very nice. In espresso/milk drinks a light roast gives taste of honey, medium roast gives a nice Carmel flavor and dark gives chocolate taste.

This is the first coffee I ever roasted and it's amazing! It's got a bright and nutty flavor with subtle notes of cinnamon! I roasted it to 22 minutes at 210 celcius, which was just into second crack, I guess a city roast. If you're new to roasting, this is definitely the one to get!

I don't roast, generally, a great many Columbian beans, but this was a pretty decent drinker with a decent body at mauve a FC roast. Definite complex chocolate nuances, and chocolaty qualities in coffees is one of my favorite attributes. At full city roast some of the fruit qualities may be reduced but some linger but it is at its smoothest to my tongue.

We always roast just past first crack so we can't speak to darker roasts, but this was one of our favorites so far, chaff was easy to separate and was we were laughing because we found ourselves literally slurping this coffee, great stuff!

Rich, bold yet smooth, this excelso is delicious without any bitter aftertaste that some Colombian coffees exhibit. It's the cabernet of coffee. On my little countertop roaster I roasted it for eight minutes @ 220 C, and then eight minutes @ 240 C. This took it a few minutes past 2nd crack and delivered a medium-dark roast. I brew it up as espresso in my Bialetti, add a dab of honey and some half-n-half for a cappuccino that is delicious beyond words. I highly recommend this coffee.

This coffee is exactly what I was looking for in terms of flavor. Rich, sweet, full bodied, classic Colombian with a cacao nuttiness, and virtually no acidity. I take it just past second cracks. I could drink this the rest of my life!

Very versatile. No matter the roast it will be a great cup. Blends with just about anything. From a breakfast blend to a desert coffee this will fit the bill.

Very smooth with a wonderful coffee taste. If you could only drink one coffee you would never be disappointed

I bought 3lbs of this and 3lbs of Costa Rica La Monolia Tres Rios. Similar profiles to that of Kona which I can't afford. Though both are great, I think I like this slightly more. As a matter of fact, I am currently enjoying a cup as I write this! It has a moderate taste, very smooth, with a slight lingering aftertaste. Happy, happy!

Now, I know the truth.... No more fake ground up or tampered with so-called roasted coffee beans... Thusly, Folgers, Maxwell House, StarBucks, Dunkin Doughnut, or commercial branded coffee beans are not for me! The Coffee Bean Corral, sells real coffee beans! The quality, flavor, and content yet intact; the quality of the coffee beans provide both exhilaration and excellence! The company's service too, was excellent being that my order was both prepared and delivered promptly! I'm delighted regarding the outcome of this purchase and too, will return to further patronize this company's rich tasty coffee beans. And btw, the "Colombia Don Enrique Reserve Excelso: is fabulous! Coffee Bean Corral, thanks for delivering a quality product expeditiously!

Quite different than most Columbian that I have roasted. Very subtle nutty taste with chocolate and fruit tones. A great bean in my opinion. Not chewy at all with a city plus roast on a behmor 1600+. I have enjoyed it in the morning and late into the eve. If you love the Columbian bean I urge you to try it out. Definitely one of my new favorites.

We've been thoroughly enjoying the wonderful world of home roasting. Particularly the various Ethiopian offerings - Yergacheffe being our favorite. But we have dabbled in quite a variety of beans from all over the world. Then pops up this offering and I figured..."why not?" I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the flavors of good old Columbian beans and we were both quite surprised how very tasty these are - at full city. As I type this I am toasting a blend of Queen City Harrar with these. Two parys Harrar to one part of these. Last week I did a three way blend of these, yergacheffe natural and some of the 18 rabbit Honduran that I have been saving. Very interesting!
