I really like this coffee because of the richness and nice crema that it makes. I would buy this one every time I order.

I love this coffee, it is so smooth and delicious! I feel so blessed to wake up to this cup of perfection every morning! I highly reccomend, nothing bitter about this bean.
pretty good, I've seen others that are better, but this one takes the cake in all other areas for me.
