The Big Joy was roasted for you by Camber Coffee. This is a blend of fully washed coffees from Palomos Del Sur in Colombia and La Union in Peru, grown between 1,800 - 2,000 meters. Camber's approach is always to articulate sweetness, complexity and body and this coffee is a great example of that with notes of rich semisweet chocolate balanced by notes of raspberry and plum.
My bag was a blend of two Guatemalan coffees (usually my favorite), not the Columbian/Peru blend currently in the description. The first shots with this were sweet and fruity with a strong metallic aftertaste. With a bit more adjusting the metallic taste faded quite a bit. This works well with oatmilk, which adds a nutty quality. With regular milk it's your average coffee. Sometimes that metallic aftertaste peeks through.
Top tier. Delicious
The Big Joy we received has a different packaging and different description so I hope it’s the same coffee cause we really liked it. Ours is described as “Expresso developed for milk. Guatemala Covandaga & El Regalito Washed”. Also “ Cascarra dark chocolate raspberry”. Totally different description but very good. Not gonna try to give detailed notes cause I don’t get the whole raspberry chocolate blah blah stuff...guess I’m not so sophisticated in my palate. I dink with warm milk and Hubbie drinks black and both enjoyed it.
really nice taste as espresso, full
Very mild, but really good. Wife loves it. Would be overwhelmed by whole milk. Had to grind it very fine, but it pulled a good consistent shot over full bag. Really liked this. Will get this again.
good chocolate notes, hard to pick out other fruit flavors
Decent as an Americano but amazing in milk
Smooth and balanced. Great for lattes.
Great Colombian. Rich, fruity flavor similar to an African coffee.
Not getting a lot of fruit notes, but big on body and chocolate flavors.
I really enjoyed this as a Chemex brew. I picked up the fruit notes, but they faded into a slightly "bitter" chocolate taste - this is the good kind of bitter - I really liked this coffee.
Solid overall but not as balanced as I would have liked. Very finicky to dial in.
Please don't ever send us this coffee again. This is second time we got it, and I gave it one star last time too!
