I enjoy my morning cups of Flo. We originally purchased our first bag of Heady Cup coffee as we like to support local small businesses. I have tried several varieties of Heady Cup and while all of them are good, I like Flo best and will continue to buy it and hope others will try Heady Cup as well.
I am an espresso fanatic and I came across this at a craft fair in Algonquin, and I have forsaken my Intelligentsia Black Cat Espresso for the Heady Espresso blend. Also love the free local delivery!
I have made this coffee with about every method you can throw at it, and it's always a winner. I got this mostly to have a late night decaf espresso as a treat. It's been very easy to get consistent shots. On the initial smell it seemed like a medium roast, with some vegetal and alkaline notes, maybe from the decaf process. I get some plum and honey in the cup. Overall the flavor doesn't have a lot of surprises, it's just comforting and nice. This is exactly what I want out of a general-purpose decaf.
Just opening the bag had me thinking of a peanut butter and jelly on wheat. Berries, nuts, and grain. That extends to the flavor. I wrote down "jam" three different times. Caramel undertones. It's like a big, bold, juicy red wine. Definitely a great coffee to brighten your day.
I had to stop myself from finishing my cup so I could take some tasting notes. My wife was staring at the bottom of her cup wondering where it went. It's that good. The nose has a pleasant, general coffee scent and some peeks of rooibos tea and coconut. The flavor has a healthy dose of rooibos tea, which you can also read as berries and herbs, and savory salted caramel. Some unusual fermented notes like soy sauce. Natural process coffee can be very "love it or hate it" depending on whether people like those fermented flavors. Personally, this is an all-time favorite. I'm ordering another bag now.
Thrilled to find a high quality coffee roaster locally! Fancy coffee without the fancy price.
The Colombian Decaffeinated is the best decaf coffee we have ever bought. Full of flavor and all the taste of regular brew.
The coffee culture in the USA is specific. It can be quite challenging to find high-quality coffee in regular stores for home brewing. However, by fortunate happenstance, I encountered coffee enthusiasts at the local Saturday market in our small town. Having been familiar with Ethiopian coffee for some time, I now have the pleasure of enjoying it every day and plan to order it again in the future. In my humble opinion, it is one of the most well-balanced varieties I have ever come across. Its flavor profile keeps you engaged without any distracting side notes, allowing the freshly brewed coffee aroma to take center stage.
I sent a "Signature Gift Box" to my sister for her birthday, and I am so glad I did. She was thrilled. It made a great gift! the packaging and presentation was excellent. I will be sending more of these for sure. Great job Heady Cup!
A new favorite. I got my first pour-over of this coffee visiting Heady Cup at Woodstock farmer's market. The initial impression was floral and a little vegetal. Makes me think of tulip bulbs. Good acidity, like a spritz of lemon. Undertones of savory flavors. Caramel or a little milk chocolate. You get the almost wine-like mouthfeel that people talk about with Ethiopian coffee.
My wife describes it as "juicy". She says this coffee is the best for mixing with creamers and flavors. Since cracking open this bag she's made a morning ritual of trying some new combination of flavor shots. She gets so excited she wants me to have a sip. I still take mine black, but every combination has been a winner.
This coffee is great any way you make it. Pour-over, Aeropress, Mokapot. With cream or without. This is a great example of Ethiopian coffee. Full of character, but easy to enjoy.
I am a hard core Starbucks drinker. Since trying heady cup coffee there is no turning back! I now do the subscription it shows up every two weeks on my doorstep and saves me so much money!
I’m local, but my order was on my doorstep three hrs. after placing it. It was roasted only 6 days before which only required a few additional days to degas for my taste. Had a little over a 100 g of beans left so transition to new batch smooth. Great job Heady Cup!
All their coffee is incredible but we particularly love the long jump. Super heady dark roast with a long draw and subtle hints of fruit and dark chocolate. World class brew!
I'm not the coffee drinker here but my Dr. is and since y'all are my extended family I thought I would treat him to better coffee. It make the whole office smell great!
I get a big whiff of peanuts when I open the bag, and I get that in the cup as well. Very pleasant. There's a bit of salted caramel in the body. I'm getting a good amount of juicy acidity, but it's very well-balanced with the body so the cup just feels very refreshing. I bet fans of rooibos tea would love this one.
Overall just so drinkable. One of my favorite coffees from Heady Cup, and that's saying a lot. I default to the Aeropress but this would be a great coffee for a pourover. Excellent daily driver that would go with any occasion.
