We Love: The unique cup features florals, molasses and exotic spices. It is sweetly aromatic, juicy with orange-like acidity on entry, smooth milk chocolate at center. Don't have an espresso machine? No worries. It will taste delicious when brewed in a french press. You will need a grinder as our coffee collection is available in whole beans ONLY.

What: Medium dark ground coffee
Weight: 454g – 1lb
Serving Tip: This coffee is delicious brewed in a French Press. Warm up your empty French Press by rinsing it with very hot water. Measure out 56g (about 8 Tablespoons) of coffee. Discard the hot water and add coffee into the press. Start your count-up timer and add the hot water halfway to the top saturating all the grounds. At 1:00, use a wooden spoon break the top layer we and give it a good stir. Now, fill it all the way to the top. Put the top on and allow the coffee to brew without pressing it down. At 4:00, you are ready to press. Firmly push the press all the way down. Serve it up!
