The Fremont Blend from Caffe Ladro is as unique and interesting as it's Seattle neighborhood namesake. Fremont Blend has a delicate flavor which at first pass you might dismiss as too mild-bodied but there are some hidden flavors to discern given the chance. The roast notes identify 'Baked Pear, Rooibos and Almond' flavors in a coffee that is Organic Certified and Fair Trade from Central America.

SCG Tasting Notes:
Dates, Sugar, Rich, Dried Fig
When test brewed in a Technivorm KB741 with a paper filter, the SCG Crew (who sometimes - but not always - get it right) noted a maple syrup color with visible oils in the cup, floral notes, a non-acidic flavor and a caramel aftertaste. This drip coffee is easy drinking and would make a nice dessert coffee since the mellow flavor is relaxing more than invigorating!

The SCG Crew supports coffee experimentation. We have tried mixing Caffe Ladro 75% Diablo Blend with 25% Fremont Blend for a special little in-house brew we like to call 'Devilment.' Your proportions may vary!

- Freshly roasted, lighter roast than expected, better for pour over than French pressReview by Brewmeister-Smith
Price Quality Value
It's a nice cup of coffee, low in acidity, and does have some nutty and caramel notes to it. I was expecting a darker roast, and found that I had to use a greater amount of coffee and and longer steep time to produce something that wasn't just tan colored water. After I figured out the right recipe it was a nice, light cup of coffee.
My guess is that it doesn't work as well for French press as it does for pour over. I also note a bit more chaff in the beans than expected as well.
Despite my gripes it's still a good coffee, but lighter than my preferred roast with good flavour, and with a bit more chaff than expected. (Posted on 5/30/2015)
