This coffee will be fresh roasted for you. We expect Caffe Vita Coffee Roasting Co will roast and ship this coffee in 1-2 business days depending on their roasting schedule.
This is the Caffe Del Sol brought to you by Caffe Vita Coffee Roasting Co. This is Caffe Vita's signature espresso blend and is rich and complex with aromas of dark chocolate, butterscotch and praline. In the cup you'll find a deep, silky, amber crema with a sweet, caramel finish.
Enjoyed it. Used it for both straight espresso and also cafe au laits which I really enjoy. Was relatively mild and earthy, I thought. Good.
Very difficult coffee to work with. Very hard to dial in on a consistent basis. I went back to a coffee I'm very familiar with to see if it was because of weather\humidity swings; but was able to use the know recipe without issue. The coffee was very water soluble which made it difficult to find a proper tamping method and grind setting on a daily basis to prevent channeling while also getting good extraction times. Because of this there I could never find a good recipe to dial the coffee into. As such I wouldn't recommend it.
We liked it!!! A little too mild for me tho and caremely. Thats why i only rated it a 4. Cant wait to try the other one!!
Very versatile coffee with noticeable differences via pour over or espresso machine. Really loved the rich, chocolaty flavor especially via pour over!
Too acidic with few other flavors to balance it out
I tried this in both a French press and espresso machine. Definitely better in the French press. Was smooth and complex. As espresso shot, came out sour and bitter.
Tastes like soil. Unpleasant.
Very nicely balanced, the chocolate comes in nicely and also detect some other flavors that I can't quite recognize yet. Overall, very highly rated espresso from my perspective
I thought this blend was okay, perhaps a bit too dark and almost too much of an earthy flavour to it. Still enjoyed it but feel there's some room for new flavours as well.
Bold, thick, rich and syrupy. Very nice aroma.
Tastes way better than costco coffee :)
The crema is a delicious taste within this coffee! Really enjoyed it in my iced latte
I would get this again. Love it.
I drank it all in espresso shots/lattes. A few times I thought I had a reasonable extraction time (i.e., not super duper fast) and it tasted a bit more acidic than I would like. The last couple shots I had of it were yummy though, so maybe it/my grinder changed over time?
Excellent. Thick and rich but not boring. Really enjoyed it.
Excellent. Thick and rich but not boring. Really enjoyed it.
It was good but again not too interesting. We like the profile but keep going back to the first bag as our favorites.
Delicious. Could taste the chocolate.
Strong and rich flavor. Definitely enjoyed this one.
This coffee is not out there with crazy flavors, and wild tasting notes but rather a very traditional "old man espresso" in the most wonderful of ways. Very easy to dial in my shot, and produced a wonderful classic espresso flavor and aroma.
Surprisingly did not like. Used to drink Vicace’s dolce regularly, so tried pulling caffe del sol as ristretto’s 18g in 22g out, but couldn’t ever get the grind dialed in.
Great coffee! This was my introduction to specially coffee, and I am definitely impressed! The subtle caramel and sweetness is a wonderful complement.
I like it. Tastes good, both out of a consumer espresso machine and my aeropress
the crema on an espresso was lovely. Very bold and flavorful. As an americano or latte also enjoyable. A treat! :)
I like it but it tastes a little too earthy to me. I’d love something with less earthiness.
I haven't had a chance to make an espresso drink with it yet, but have been enjoying it using a french press. I truly enjoy this coffee. The blend of flavors is excellent and makes for an wonderful start to the day.
Loved this one. Perfect flavor and balance.
Good anytime coffee. Not too strong, not too soft. Low acidity.
True to the description. On the darker side, brings out beautiful dark chocolate and sweet caramel. If possible, lower temps (91-93 celsius) really make it shine.
Might be my new favorite coffee. Tons of flavor, caramel flavors, appropriately dark.
This coffee gave me really bad heartburn every day that I pulled shots from it. I'd like NOT to have Caffe Vita coffee again. I'm sure it's good, but acidic content was too much for me.
Nice chocolate and caramel flavor but a little
A little flat for our tastes.
Bold and smooth flavor, slightly sweet.
Loved this coffee. It has nice strong notes of chocolate and caramel as stated. It's quite sweet and creates great crema. Really enjoyed this! Might just need to order another bag!
Slightly bitter but otherwise perfect
Really, really like this
Great chocolate flavor.
I’ve loved everything sent so far but this has been my absolute favorite. It’s smooth (yet complex) and just had a fantastic flavor. Has expressed perfectly every time!
Good, butterscotch comes through very subtly.
A bit flat. Difficult to taste hints of anything
When freshly ground, I could really pick up the chocolaty flavor. My wife thought it was good enough to drink without milk and sugar.
This coffee was really well balanced and worked well across several brewing methods.
Light and smooth on the palate.
This is one of my favorite coffee's to date. The taste is complex without being over acidic
Deep rich flavors, excellent creama perfect for my latte. I have tried two blends from Caffe Vita and both have been amazing
Flavor was very good. The chocolate and caramel undertones were just the right amount. The coffee, on the whole, was a bit too mild for the complexity.
great crema. Like the chocolate and caramel flavor.
Had a little bit of a cold so not sure if I was tasting all the flavors.
- Good low level of acidity and roast. Didn't taste overly burnt.
- Nice smooth and bold texture.
- Not too much flavor, though. Might be good to try a lightly flavored coffee that is popular?
This is a fantastic classic espresso.
Smooth AF, silky finish and not bitter. Best I've had yet.
This one was milder and less aromatic than expected. However, this coffee was quite nice as a cappuccino. A gentle milk chocolate.
Dark chocolate, carmeley, and rich, this one is pretty good. Not quite perfection, could maybe be nuttier for a more tasty cup. I do enjoy this one though.
Makes very good espresso- this is one I know very well from Seattle and have been very impressed with ever since my wife and were introduced to it many years ago. Good solid espresso that holds up well with cream
Good cold brew
Butterscotch. Rich mouthfeel.
Tastes like coffee! Rich flavor. We really liked this for espresso milk drinks.
This is definitely my favorite of the ones you have sent me. Not sure if I just got lucky with my brewing, but this was a perfect combo of sweet, caramely, with a bit of almost tropical fruit. Really enjoying it as both a shot, and also with milk.
Great crema, rich and creamy. Love it.
This espresso blend makes the best iced lattes, especially with whole milk.
just about the best espresso I've ever had; I wouldn't change a thing about this coffee.
I thought this had a very plain flavor.
This is my least favorite yet. I've been favoring lighter roasts and this one is dark enough that the oils are starting to appear.
This was terrible coffee, especially terrible for Espresso. Might as well buy Starbucks beans, these were everything wrong with most coffee beans. Overroasted, slimy and undrinkable.
This was better than the Lucent and had good crema and flavor. I thought the roast was about right and the flavor was more earthy than bright, but less earthy than the Lucent. If I were going to look for any improvement, it would be to retain the sweetness and chocolate notes of the coffee while adding just a touch more fruitiness to make the flavor fuller and more complex.
