The Truth was blended and roasted for you by Cat & Cloud Coffee. The Truth represents what Cat & Cloud thinks are the most fun and interesting coffees to rip through the espresso machine. This coffee favors larger extraction outputs for bright, lively, and crisp flavors. Juicy sweetness will dominate the cup in any of its iterations and the complexity from using multiple coffees make for one of the most exciting taste experiences out there.
strangely unsatisfying for a cat&cloud roast, not really getting 'crisp' or 'juicy' notes at all... this is mostly just flat, a bit on the sweet side. maybe i haven't got the grind quite right... sadly this one is far from complex and I have to guess it is inconsistent based on the other reviews
In consistent flavor profile. Sometimes with a very dry mouthfeel and a lingering tobacco flavor
I thought for sure based on the other reviews I would like this one, but it just wasn’t working for me (in a Chemex). The middle part of a sip tasted really dark, and then the finish was more sour than I like. I tried varying brew techniques a bit and I couldn’t dial it in.
Bright with nice acidity for a darker roast. Bit of dark cherry or plum. Tiniest bit of green wood like in an Ethiopian light roast. Slight menthol tingle on the finish. Well balanced and great with breakfast.
My regular go-to
I had a difficult time dialing this in, and ultimately needed to stray from the standard recipe, grinding finer than I would otherwise, 18g in, 36g out, 40 seconds. Found that this brought out more of the interesting fruit notes without getting bitter or over-extracted. Also kicked up the temperature a degree or two beyond what I normally use on the silvia pid (hard to quite match to final brew temp unfortunately). Maybe with further optimization I'll like it more, but in the end, was a bit disapointed especially given the exceptional reviews cat cloud gets. Maybe it was this batch of the truth that was less interesting or maybe it's my lack of skill that made it hard to bring out the best notes.
Very good would order
I don't understand how this is the lightest possible on the roast scale. It looks, smells, and tastes like a dark roast: burnt and terrible.
Hard to miss with Cat & Cloud. Another solid coffee with a lot of flavor. Acidity was a tad high.
Really liked this
This is a pretty good espresso. Light roast that yields a juicy shot with hints of toffee at the end
It was fine
Pure bliss. We loved this blend brewed with aeropress.
Just ok. Not as full bodied as I expected.
Tasted better as it cooled down
It just tasted burnt. We tried varying the temperature and bloom length but nothing really helped.
I couldn't get the ratio right on my coffee machine. Either it was too thin and uncomplicated (no complexity!) or tasted a little too dark. I don't like drinking this one black! It was much better when I put it in my Moka point but still a tad too dark for me.

One of our new favorite coffees. Amazing!
Great for espresso! Easy enough to dial in, but still acidic and fruity in just the right way.
A very good coffee. A bit mild, but I thought it had a great balance of acidity. It is juicy, as it says. A great selection, especially if you like your coffee a little brighter. Note: I had it black every time.
We loved this blend so much that we considered selecting it for our brew queue again!
I really enjoyed this coffee! Rich and sweet.
Love this Blend SO MUCH! balanced, sweet, and juicy AF.
Might be better espresso, but my preference is for a lighter roast with fruit forward attributes
Juicy is correct, easy to drink
Decent, not as full and nutty as I prefer.
Fulfilled its promise. Good blend . Will be in my line-up
Used this for French Press. It had a bit of a nutty aftertaste; slightly more bitter than what I prefer. Great juiciness and sweetness. There were some really good flavors that I couldn't quite distinguish. Never got the grind size down perfectly.
Pretty middle of the road easy drinking coffee.
It was good but a little bland, nothing stood out with this coffee.
Too much citrus for my taste and a bitter aftertaste. But palatable I suppose.
Sweet without being overly acidic. A good palate cleanser from darker roasted espresso blends, but not my preferred every day drink.
Great cup of coffee. Very complex! Highly recommend
