This is the Ladro Espresso Blend brought to you by Caffe Ladro. This flagship blend designed for brewing balanced, sweet espresso and great for big-bodied drip. This cup is fantastically rich, with notes of chocolate, caramel and dark cherry.
We found this to be really oily, creating somewhat of a hassle with the machine.
Solid coffee. Have not been able to get a really rich flavor from espresso shots.
I found this coffee to be a little bitter, and it doesn't have a very strong flavor. Maybe it's my brewing method? I can detect the chocolate flavor notes, and it is smooth, but otherwise, it is not my favorite.
It was a medium roast (stated in big letters on the front), which I didn't like.
Best fit yet. This was an exceptionally well received roast.
Good flavor, notes of caramel, and not fruity like a light roast, but not nearly bitter enough. Dark roast lovers, stay away.
Not a great taste and the second time we have had this....
Not enjoyable at all. When I want an espresso, I want it to be strong. This tasted like a medium regular roast. There was nothing really special about the coffee.
This coffee was great!! Well-rounded with wonderful flavor!
Was not as strong as I thought it might be but had a nice rich mouth feel to it. Didn't really pickup on a ton of flavor from it but overall not a bad cup.
Didnt even get around to pulling a shot of this one. Extremely tasty as a french press, chemex, and drip. Possibly the best pound for pound blend I've ever had. The definition of balance. You could get bored with this after a while maybe, but by the same token, this could very well be your year-round go-to blend. Excellent coffee.
Amazing Espresso Roast for us dark roast lovers!
Great brewed with espresso (DeLonghi), Aeropress, and Bonavita autodrip.
I was really looking forward to this one for the rich taste, but it came up short. Seemed weak for straight espresso and got lost in lattes. Definelty not a do again.
A bit on the acidic side; good straight up but lost some of its flavor when used for a latte.
Nice comforting cup of coffee. The medium roast is a bit light for me. I'm missing the bite of a dark roast. To compensate, I'm mixing the Ladro with a 50/50 cut of organic french roast from Allegro.
I love Ladro! It was fun to open the box and see that bag, because Ladro is in my neighborhood!
I really like it as an espresso!
The taste of chocolate just melts in my mouth with a sip of this coffee. It has a really nice balance, not bitter. A little mild for me, but still really enjoyable.
Amazingly complex medium roast. I would say 5 stars if I wasn't a dark roast fiend. Holds up really well as drip, but had best luck with my aeropress. Rich and creamy chocolate notes, even got a bit of cherry if I focused! Low acidity and silky mouth feel make this one enjoyable to sip all day.
It's a good coffee, but a little too earthy for me.
Slightly bitter, chocolatey, coats the tongue. Aroma: dark, subtle. Heavy finish.
Absolutely delicious. Great balance and flavor. No bitterness, nice smooth finish.
Nicely balanced medium roast, but I realize that the dark roasts are definitely my preference.
Love the medium body and the chocolatey notes, not an overwhelming espresso taste, get to enjoy it for the whole cup.
My favorite so far
really great blend of chocolate and bittersweet notes. Very balanced on the finish wihout overly sour or bitter notes. Definitely will purchase again!
Can't put my taste bud on what I don't like, but the previous one was so impressive delicious that nothing else can compare.
Coffee testes too burnt
Haven't tried this one yet - submitted this review by accident.
First impressions are difficult to overcome. The bean is much lighter and drier than I expected for an espresso roast. This is an average coffee thru the Moka pot ... nothing really jumps out to grab you. Very drinkable, but nothing spectacular. From the French press, you definitely get the cherry. If you let it linger, you also pick up a sweet creaminess. This is not your coffee if you want a deep, powerful flavor profile.
enjoying the fruity and chocolate hints in this coffee.
Not my favorite. I first tasted a hint of chocolate followed by a fruit flavor that was somewhat off putting for me. Was not quite sure of what fruit it was until I read the bag....the Cherry notes were more intense than I would have expected. I could see how some people would love this, but it just wasnt for me.
Hmmmm...ok this coffee is not really what I thought it would be..judging on the notes of this coffee, I was expecting it to be grand! But it's not a total dupe, it's drinkable nevertheless..
Perfect tasting coffee for me, this is exactly what I like.
Just didnt pack enough deep flavors in a dark roast
This blend is fantastic! We loved how bold and flavorful it was without any bitterness.
Absolutely delicious as an expresso, balanced and sweet with caramel and chocolate notes
Better than last but still not the dark roast I prefer.
Great. Only 4 stars because I liked the last one a little better.
Nice, smooth, balanced blend. Subtle notes of caramel and cherries. Seems like a darker roast than it appears to be.
Sour no matter how I brewed it, unfortunately. :(
Nice bold flavor. A little bit of an acidy after taste.
Couldn't get a consistent pour, and when I manged a good one the flavors were imbalanced and a bit thin.
We like Ladro - they have great beans. Our only challenge is that we are able to get them any day, and we prefer to try roasters we haven't been exposed to.
Definitely very chocolatey. I taste more of a milky chocolate which pairs very well with milk for a latte or a mocha.
Really enjoyed this coffee was strong without being overpowering.
This one was great - really nice flavor
Another fantastic delivery. The layers throughout each cup of coffee keep the taste just as refreshing as the last.
