This is the Fresh Crop Balanced Blend brought to you by Kuma Coffee. Fresh Crop Balanced will be a mixing their latest Central American and South American coffees. The coffees will change with the seasons, but the flavor profile of caramel, chocolate and stone fruit attributes will never waver and is great brewed every way.
Not my favorite. Not a very appealing aroma and the espresso is very bland in taste.
It is hard to give these reviews because the coffee is so good. We are parsing the top 1% of coffee here. That said, is it possible for something to be "too balanced?" If that is possible, then my critique here is that the coffee is so balanced it has lost any particular personality. It becomes "forgettable amazing coffee." In other words, I remember every cup of The Boss Espresso by Barefoot. I don't "remember" any shots of this coffee. I know I drank it, I loved it, but it didn't sing to me.
