My semiautomatic espresso machine requires "non oily" beans. Would this coffee fit that description? Thank you.
A shopper on Sep 29, 2016
Best Answer: Yes, it's not oily at all. Used this coffee in my automatic espresso machine without any problem.

How long after roast date do you sell this? I don't wish to purchase stale coffee. Thanks much.
A shopper on Nov 14, 2016
Best Answer: 49th Parallel is one of our Roast to Order brands! This means that we receive their coffee freshly roasted every week. We take stock of 49th's roasts at the beginning of each week, and recommend ordering by at least mid-week for the freshest possible beans. Then, depending on your location in relation to our WA warehouse you'll receive your coffee based on your chosen shipping speed.

Hope this helps!

Packaged for freshness...i.e.nitrogen flushed?
Shelf life after roasting?
James V on Mar 15, 2016
Best Answer: Hi James. I'm not sure if it's nitrogen flushed, but it's fresh and nice tasting. A bit bright, so no short pulls on espresso. Good crema. Great all around. So far have tried espresso, V60, Chemex, Behmor drip, and Aeropress. Wasn't disappointed, especially liked the Chemex. Sweet, nice acid, soft citrus maybe more orange. Medium body IMO. I've only tried one bag, so I can't comment on reproducibility. I'm a home roaster, and like to pick up some good quality beans for my own roast comparisons.

Best medium roast hands downReview by Michel
This bean blend is the reason I drink coffee.

The beans are best the first 3 days after roasting, with strong chocolate notes. Day 4-8, the bitterness comes out so best to dial back the yield slightly, or shorten the shot depending on your machine/setup. After day 8, you can go back to normal yield and the bitterness will return as time goes on.

Even into the third week after roasting the predominant notes are still floral and chocolate.

I have had people say a latte made with this roast tastes better than hot chocolate, and is the only bean, where I know everyone will ask for a second cup. That good.

Note - roasted in Vancouver, BC in very small batches, and they run a mean donut shop as well!. You will find the bean profile not only changes day-to-day after roasting, but slightly between batches. They typical have to re profile the blend 2-3 times a year, as they rotate their bean sources.

Don't miss their other single source blends. (Posted on 2/28/2016)
