I have been a coffee lover most of my adult life. I always spent 31 years in corporate food service.
I can not recommend a better locally roasted coffee. The delivery and ordering is a simple process.
They put the brand with an attitude to shame.
The beans roasted by Hato Viejo deliver very smooth and rich coffee--even this dark roast! As in wine, the terroir makes the difference.
I used the dark roast for my automated pour-over machine and my Chemex on the weekends. There is absolutely no bitterness and the flavor is full and delicious. I will be buying again, and trying the other roasts!
I finally understand why Fresh Roast is so good. I’ve tried the Whole Blend and Ground Dark and both are so smooth. No need to adulterate with sugar and cream.
Customer service is awesome too.
I visited Lebanon, NH, for the first time in early June. We were there for the first Farmer’s Market and I bought your Dark Roast whole bean coffee and brought it back home to Virginia. I opened it yesterday and made my fist cup of coffee with your beans. DELICIOUS! I am so happy that I bought them. Thank you.
