- taste edge
This is the only brand of coffee I will drink! The BEST!!
Aroma is wonderful and coffee was smooth. Slight hint of chocolate but also slight after taste edge. Terrific find. Look forward to trying another.
Awesome! wish it came in a 5lb. bag
Satisfying - delicate scent and taste ☕️
The San Roque coffee makes me want to get up early in the morning to have my one mug of oh so enjoyable delightful nectar. I think I’ve found the coffee I Ike the most. But, I haven’t tasted the other two yet.
The citrus notes in this coffee are amazing!
