I bought this Klatch World's Best Espresso in a variety pack and this stood out as my favorite out of 6 different kinds. It had a natural chocolate flavor with a very slight lemony notes and a nutty aroma. I've been crazing this coffee again. The other tie for first for me was the Atomic Café Intensi Espresso with virtually identical chocolatey lemony nutty. And a micron close second was the Klatch Coffee Belle Espresso with a natural caramely sweetness that was shockingly good and an amazing lingering aroma. In the 20 dollars per pound range these are easy recommendations.
Amazing aroma and flavor
Nothing. It was perfect.

I've fallen in love with the delicate flavors of this coffee - it's very nutty and very different from other coffees I've received from WLL (mostly dark roast). Some hints of vanilla in there as well. I've brewed this with an Expobar semi-automatic machine in my house, and used a high-quality grinder. The results have been wonderful, and I would recommend experimenting with various fine-tunings of the grind. Different flavors come out with different settings, and it's a matter of personal preference.
Vary the grind a bit to bring out different flavors.
Straight espresso, Latte
