We also found that it's much easier on the stomach with a lower acid level, more so than Espresso, but not because of the chemical process. A naturally occurring lower acid level means it's a true dark roast. A good company that is truly organic should never use the chemical processes, and instead know how to actually roast the coffee properly. A slower roast allowing the oils (which contain the acid) to be roasted out of the coffee without over roasting, versus treating them chemically is the key in other words. You get the caffeine, just not the heart burn. And that is ideal for coffee drinkers like us.
I think we've found the one! With all that said, it really does depend on your palate. I do believe however, that this has a nice overall compatibility with what most are wanting in a good strong coffee, especially first thing in the morning. A good deep flavor without knocking you back. Perfect for what we're wanting.
BTW: The Chicco blend is THE best for iced coffee we've found, as the smooth yet bold flavor is complimented by cream and a hint of sweetness. Doesn't lose the flavor and gives you a nice aftertaste. I usually regrind it to a finer consistency for my espresso machine. You won't have the crema like you do with Espresso blends, but it's enough. And no worries, because this blend definitely has a bold enough flavor that is suitable for this type of drink. Actually - it's perfect.
An added bonus is that it's grown and roasted right here in the USA! We couldn't recommend more.
As far as the taste, I personally dont like acidic or fruity coffee. I also dont like a French/Italian/Espresso roast that is so dark that it has a burnt taste to it. (I've dumped more cups of coffee to those qualities than I care to admit.) This blend has none of those qualities. It is a solid dark roast that gives you the deep flavor and depth without the acid/fruity or burnt qualities. We regularly get complements (and requests for refills) on this coffee when serving guests.
I know some people are concerned about the oil content of the beans. I do typically see some oil on the beans when opening a fresh bag. We've never had any issues with buildup or clogging on our super automatic machine in the ~2 years we have been buying this coffee.
I prefer the Organic Coffee Company's Dark French Roast because it's a true dark roast, and because 9 times out of 10 it is fresh and oily.
However, at $14 I could not argue with this as a worthwhile substitute. now that the price has gone up to $24, I'll go back to the Organic Coffee Co.
