    Good flavor and robust. Good mouth feel- thickness and richness. Not too acidic. Will definitely continue to drink and purchase.

    Still dialing this in Peru – San Ignacio (Medium – Full City)
    The nose is beautiful and as described
    Lot of cocoa and dark chocolate notes on this one

    I have been drinking Modest for over 2 years now and it has been consistently the best coffee I have ever had. You may change the flavors seasonally but it always is a smooth coffee with a fantastic flavor that never upsets my stomach and it fits any time of day. Morning cup, afternoon, or dinner. You have ruined me for any and all other coffee.

    Exactly as described; about as dark of a roast as you can get without hitting the second “crack” / or oily bean stage. Flavor notes hold true. The chocolate and carmel notes just as promised. Little to no acidity; Very smooth. Rare to see a natural process coffee roasted this dark but it Modest nailed it.

    If you want a 5 star cup for yourself, Make your own 50/50 blend with one of their lighter roasts such as the Bali or Guatamela Antigua = Pure Nirvana of complexity and roasty comfort.

    This is my absolute favorite coffee so far. I definitely got the dried cherry notes, but also a caramel/toffee flavor note. The coffee was so smooth and there was a richness to it too without it being overpowering. If I didn’t have so much coffee I would definitely be ordering more. Too much coffee is a good problem to have.

    This coffee is a satisfying change from my usual go-to lighter roasts. I enjoy it with a french press. It’s full-bodied and balanced.

    Take this review for what it is – I have the general palate of a tongueless mule. however, i found this coffee to be excellent – we grind it as we brew and we found the nose and bite to be perfect. the coffee was delivered quickly at a very competitive price overall. we’re always happy to support small businesses as we run a couple ourselves. we’re very pleased with this coffee and company.
