Overall, I enjoyed the coffee. Chocolate notes in the coffee are nice. I have couple of feedback for your future considerations.
1. Would be nice if roasting dates could be a bit fresher. When I received the beans, one of them is actually already almost a month old. While the others are 2+ weeks old already.
2. Perhaps consider to have a variety of beans suitable for pour over and espresso for packages like this, to keep things interesting. Or maybe have a variety of esporesso beans with more significantly different profiles, instead of having almost all of them also with some sort of chocolaty profile.
I liked the fresh roasted bean!
First off, as at the time of this review, I have only tasted 2 varieties out of 4 in the Coffee Collection, the Espresso Blend and the single origin Antigua Guatemala.So those are the ones I will be commenting on.
For a dark roast, the Espresso Blend was actually less in-your-face when it comes to flavour notes than other dark roasts I have encountered. The pleasant chocolate and nutty notes unfold and transition into slightly herbal territory, almost reminiscent of licorice as the coffee cools. Fantastic if you like to sip and enjoy your coffee slowly.
The Antigua is a medium roast. That distinct fruity flavour, seemingly a mainstay of Guatemalan coffee really shines through here without being overly acidic, not to mention that lingering sweetness. Just be careful not to under-extract or the brew might be a little too sour (from experience). However, I may be slightly biased since I seem to have quite the soft spot for Guatemalan coffees.
Can't wait to taste the other 2 blends!
My only criticism of this otherwise great experience so far is that "commitment to provide coffee that are within 14 days of the roast date" by the roaster wasn't really true in my case. I received coffee whose roast dates ranged within 2nd July - 21st July when I ordered on 23rd July. (Oldest roast date was 3 weeks old at the time of ordering).
All in all, it was good!

I like that you package the coffee without valves to preserve the coffee and its aroma better. I have only tried 2 house blends so far and both are decent. 1 star deducted because there are 2 packs of coffee roasted 1 month before the date I received and normally coffee is best brewed within 1 month of roasting date. Thanks.
Super fast delivery. Thank you!! Personally like Forest Cloud coffee beans aroma and able to enjoy and refresh with a good cup of coffee even at home.

Nice coffee with reasonable price. I like the blue moon coffee a lot
We haven't tried all 4 variations yet but so far every blend had its own unique notes and they were all so fragrant!
I love the coffee collection where i can try different flavor as i couldn't make any decision in choosing the flavor i wanna try. Overall, I really love the tastes of the coffee. Would definitely repurchase once i've finished mine! And the packaging is so lovely and creative! It's so much different from the normal / basic packaging other coffee beans had.
