Smooth and a bit of unexpected earthiness with a hint of floral at a just-under-dark roast. Just what I am looking for in the morning. Excellent with a rough grind in a French press.

I was very curious after reading the descriptions and reviews. Now I can't fathom why robusta has a bad rap. First I tried it roasted just after first crack. It had a slightly gamey vegital flavor. Next roast was middle of second crack. Much better, but not wildly exceptional. It makes a really good coffee, better than anything you can buy in a supermarket. From the drip maker taste like a really good Americano. Brewed in the moka pot it's dense, rich, sweet and smooth. I had thought I was going to be experimenting blending with this but I enjoy it on its own. I believe this being naturally processed contributes to its sweetness and interesting flavor. I tried a washed robusta and understood the prejudice against the species. A slight aroma of burnt rubber was detected two weeks after roast, so I plan to roast one weeks worth at a time.

Wow. I'm impressed - and for the price! We ordered a couple of robustas to experiment with blending, and this was the clear winner. I roasted to a medium in order to get some of the varieties flavor and I really like the earthiness. Unfortunately, I see it's out of stock now, but I will be ordering more once there's some available. I drink primarily espresso, and blended with other varieties it makes a wonderful crema. Go for it.

Not my favorite, but I tried it on its own and there's an earthiness to it I just don't get in other coffees. But, after reading more about it, I do see it's best to use it in blends rather than on its own. I plan to do that with it.

A follow up review. First off I would like to thank Coffee Bean Corral for offering 3 Robusta varieties, most green bean distributors don't offer even 1. I know there are other Robusta coffee lovers like me who appreciate the wonderful morning wake-up that it gives. I've roasted all 3 CBC varieties and the clear winner for me is India Cherry Robusta. Taste is a personal thing and I admit Arabica tastes better than Robusta though I've found that India Cherry, for me, tastes better than some Arabicas I've roasted. I just ordered 10 lbs. of India Cherry.

The high levels of caffeine and theobromine make this a great way to start my day. I also like the taste. After more testing I'll choose between this and CBC's Guatemalan Robustas to be my morning coffee.
