With your eyes closed, stick your face in this bag and you immediately know you have an espresso roast in front of you! A rich, bold cup revealing flavors of chocolate and graham cracker, with a bit of acidity peeking through. Using a super-fine grind, this was a perfect brew in the Bialetti Mocha Pot (do yourself a favor and get one!) This is a masterful espresso roast, with a great “signature” flavor that is evident throughout the entire Heady Cup line. Well done!
I started drinking coffee 55 years ago, and have always preferred dark roasts (was a way to counteract my parents’ super weak Folgers in a Corning percolator. Over the years I grew to prefer flavorful dark roasts as long as they weren’t too acidly or on the burnt end of the roasting. Long Jump is seriously delicious for the above reasons and more. In also have to admit that I live in the midst of Coffeetown Portland OR, so It’s saying something that I prefer to get Heady Coffee shipped out to me here. Looking forward to trying some of the other roasts soon.
The "elephant bean" lives up to its name. My wife who only mildly follows my coffee obsession gave a yelp of surprise at how different the beans look. I love the story of working with the people of Papua New Guinea to lift up their coffee growers to today's specialty coffee requirements. This product is very promising.
I had to brew my first Aeropress the moment I got the beans home. I'm usually dialed for a pretty light roast and I haven't experimented with different settings yet. Fresh off the roaster, the coffee was very nostalgic. Anyone who tastes it immediately says, "this reminds me of something". It almost tasted like a super-premium instant coffee. Just a very "regular" coffee flavor, but free of defects. My wife hates smoky flavors found in popular coffees. This was the first cup of black coffee she ever swiped from me. It was like a really good cup of drip coffee you'd get at your favorite diner. I'd definitely consider it for drip, pourover, etc.
I was scheduled for a week at my parents' house so I let the beans rest in the fridge. When I returned the coffee was showing some more mature flavors. The nose is still a little vegetal and earthy, like a leafy forest in fall. The taste is still so comforting. Just a touch of acidity and mouthfeel like the aftertaste of black cherry or grand marnier, as described. It's like if you had a really good cup of diner coffee and you're eyeing a piece of dark toast with a bit of dark fruit preserves. As the coffee cools it gets deeper flavor, earthier and leafier, never showing negative characteristics. It's just... nice. Really good daily driver coffee. Very happy I got to try it, and I definitely look forward to the future.
This is my favorite blend so far. Rich deep flavor. Smooth taste. Works great in my drip coffee maker. This will definitely be ordered regularly. So good. Does not disappoint.
I'm a huge fan of Long Jump! It gets me out of bed every morning.
Masterful flavor. Hats off to the roasters!
Great dark roast. Full body flavor. Pleasant aftertaste. Had it ground for my drip coffee maker and it came out great. Perfect way to start my day. You won't be disappointed. You can see, smell and taste the care & quality. A delicious cup. A Heady Cup!
I love the taste of this decaf coffee and it’s super cool that they offer doorstep delivery! Most importantly, these guys support small farms that practice regenerative farming practices and fair trade business practices AND they don’t use chemicals to de-caffeinate. Commercial coffee is loaded with chemicals, gets their coffee beans from farms that destroy the environment and ecosystems, and exploits workers with poor conditions and low pay. Enjoy Heady Cup coffee and know your supporting a positive cause!
Delicious toasty medium roast (flo), delivered right to my front door. I’m in love.
I use my moka pot almost every day, and Flo makes a great cup of my 'poor man's latte', it's delicious, would order it again!
Best coffee I’ve had in a long time (purchased Flo) and the service I received was top notch. Will be back again for sure and highly recommended to anyone who likes good coffee.
Nicely roasted, quality coffee from Costa Rica. Pour-over method yielded notes of cherry cola and fruit jam typical of caturra varietals. Would likely purchase again. This is a promising local roaster and I look forward to their future offerings.
