I've been searching for an everyday bean that gave me the taste I like. I've been buying different beans and trying them alone and then blended with other beans. When I found this coffee I found the perfect cup for me. Very earthy and not too fruity.

I've ordered all 3 of the La Minitia beans. La Magnolia is outstanding! Couldn't imagine much better until my 1st mug of La Gladiola. This has a little more earthiness, which I love. I enjoy darker roasts averaging 1.5 to 2 minutes into 2nd crack. Cooler temps (400 F) to extend 1st and 2nd cracks, allowing for build of sugars. 12 G per 10 oz. mug (280G), French press @ 4 min 30 sec. A perfect cup if there is such a thing.

La Gladiola is a solid tasting coffee. No super high notes, but no flaws either. I drink a lot of coffee every day and I would reorder this coffee without question. This is the kind of coffee you can sit around the kitchen table drinking without noticing how good it really is. I roast to start of the second crack and let my Cafe Gene self cool which takes the beans a bit darker (no oil). I have tried both a coarse and a medium rind using an OXO burr grinder, brewed at 200 degrees and find both fine. I have settled on the medium grind. I agree with the earthy, not too fruity review with regard to taste.
