I bought a French press a couple months ago and want to figure out what kind of coffee I like best because we only had an espresso maker at my house before. It might be interesting later for me to look back and see what I thought about various coffees while I was drinking them for the first time. For those of you who also love coffee, you might enjoy this post as well. I also wrote about Starbucks Sumatra, the Papa Nicholas House Roast, and the Papa Nicholas Hawaiian Roast.
I actually still haven’t finished the Hawaiian Roast, but my dad bought some Sumatra so I wanted to try it.
It had a strong, rich dark smell when I opened it. The finished coffee smells the same.
With cream and raw sugar it is smooth and dark and sweet but not too sweet. I want to taste the coffee, not hide it.
It’s really good. I’m not sure how it compares taste-wise to the Fresh Thyme, but it’s far better than the Starbucks.
It seems I like medium and dark roasts better. Perhaps that is due to my experience with espresso after mostly not having coffee for years. I’ll never know.
The rating: 7/10.
(Today’s rating is based solely on taste with no adjustment for the price as I didn’t purchase it.)
