Mail order morning heaven..

Extra dark roast Huila expresso grind : is there a better kick start to the morning ?* Post office '48hr' service slowed by covid, but when it arrives the coffee is worth the wait. * we're still working out which we prefer, the Guatemala Antigua or the Huila it's a very close race.

Worst than supermarket coffee, period. Undrinkable as an espresso and only manageable with sugar when served with milk. Truly one of my worst purchases from any of my online coffee orders.
