Red Tail Apaneca Coffee Beans

Red Tail Apaneca Coffee Beans

These beans look amazing. They’re dark and smooth, like a deeply polished pair of Italian leather shoes. They just make you want to pick them out and nibble them like a packet of sweets. They ground down to a lovely fine and consistent powder with no chaff whatsoever. At this point thinks were looking good for an early morning pick-me-up. But then we had a problem – it ground just too well – because it came out so fine, our usual seven spoons for three cups resulted in a brew that was drinkable, but in no way ideal. It was just too metallic – a crucible of molten bronze. So for the second cup we took a lot more care – checking not to grind to fine or overdose our pot. This second one came out much more palatable – a decent, deeply flavoured brew with no hint of bronze. There was no head on the cup – its flat and plain looking. Still we loved it, but have to take it down a point for the care needed. 7/10

What the Manufacturer's say: 

"An amazingly complex coffee with great sweetness and body and notes of caramel, almonds, ripe fruit, maltiness, citrus fruit and chocolate this is the perfect coffee for any time of the day."

mmmmm coffee. Tastes like coffee only stronger, so nice coffee man makes it weaker, now coffee tastes like coffee again. Coffee tastes good when I drink. Taste after I drink is strange. After two more drink sips aftertaste doesn't seem so strange. After four more drink sips aftertaste seems nice. mmmmmmmm coffee.

nice smooth coffee with a pleasant caramely malty flavour in the background. Would happily drink this coffee all day Long.
