lovely selection of fresh coffee. Fast delivery. I’ve currently tried fortuna, Darkside, Pato, Ecuadorian. My personal favourites are Fortuna and Darkside. But in all honesty I’ve never had a bad coffee out of any of the beans. Always an amazing coffee using my sage barista pro.
A random selection of coffees is a good choice if you don't know what you are looking for, like me. So far I have tried: Bloom, Pato, Fortuna and Dark Side. Initially, I was not convinced, the coffee bens colour was somewhat pale brown and matt on all of them, but they tasted reasonably well - different grinds and different type of coffee brews I tried: two to be exact - a percolator espresso and a drip filtered. As expected, espresso brewing extracts really well coffees full body of bitterness and flavours, so the initial look of beans was saved. Drip filtered coffee tasted somewhat generic but yet with slightly distinguishable notes of nutty and fruity flavour.
But, wait, that is not all. Only recently I have finally opened the pack of Dark Side, my last pack of the selection, and boy was I for a surprise. Not just the look of roeasted beans - dark brown, almost black and oily but the smell of the beans, finally the taste of it. I have only ground a small batch and made a drip filtered small black cup, which is my favourite, and this is what made me to write this review. Finally, I think (95%) this is what I have been looking for in these coffees. A superb flavour, and compelling rich, well taste so far, taste that develops on your pallet, if you let it. I need more experimentation with grind thicknesses and brewing types to get where I want, which is the journey into the dark side, right?) but this is an excellent start.
Well done Divine Coffee Co.! Keep up the Dark Side dark!
I really like the pato coffee it has a pleasant taste drink it black or with cream.
The subscription was bought for my son, who is definitely a coffee aficionado, he's really enjoying the coffees and is really impressed with them. Pleased that I went with a random selection so that he gets to try different roast/beans etc. I really enjoyed all the different coffees from Divine that we've tried ourselves too
First subscription delivery perfectly on time with the usual accurate information from DIVINE AND DPD. Quality coffee is a quality of life issue!! Thanks all
