Dark and strong
Pure coffee taste
Fresh and tasty coffee for every day.
I took random coffees to find my favorite. And it's perfect option.
We started out by buying the introductory pack and we enjoyed trying the different strengths of coffee. We decided to support this excellent enterprise by subscribing. However, we still want to have the opportunity of trying different coffees so have opted for a random selection every few weeks. Our first order came the next day! Can thoroughly recommend.
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!
