Looking for a bag of coffee beans that will make a great cup of coffee every morning? After searching for years, I’ve found one. I recommend Tucan Espresso Sexy Seven by Mountain Air Roasters in Palisade, Colorado.
I feel like I’ve been searching for years for a great cup of coffee that won’t break the bank. Already a fan of Tucan Coffee, I saw a display of Tucan Coffees at my local Sam’s Club. (If your local Sam’s Club doesn’t carry Tucan Coffee and you want to give it a try, just check out mountainairroasters.com, give them a call, and order some direct.)
****NOTE: Even though the bag calls Sexy Seven an “Espresso” roast, I don’t use an espresso machine; I just make it the same way I would make any cup of coffee, and the results are great!****
Here’s why I recommend Tucan Sexy Seven:
Bold, Rich Flavor. One of the things I require in a cup of coffee is flavor. I don’t care for the weak stuff. That said, I don’t want the flavor to be off-puttng in its boldness. Tucan’s Espresso Sexy Seven has two advantages over so many other coffees I’ve tried:
Advantage #1. Tucan’s Espresso Sexy Seven is a blend of beans that seems to take advantage of the best qualities of each bean while minimizing the deficiencies of each bean. The result is a bold and tasty cup of coffee. Flavors trend toward cocoa nibs with a little nuttiness while staying away from some of the sour and vinegary flavors that don’t like in some coffees.
Advantage #2. All of Tucan’s coffees are air roasted. Why does that matter? No burnt or bitter flavors that can result from conventional roasting. Check out air-roasted-coffee.com for a complete explanation. So far in my experience, air roasting equals more consistently good coffee!
Great Taste Every Time. After about a month drinking the coffee every single day (usually 2 cups), every cup has been great.
Dark Roast/Low Acid. I’m not a big fan of acid in my coffee. I’ve got enough reflux problems without having to worry about coffee making it worse. I don’t have any problems with Tucan’s Espresso Sexy Seven.
The Price is Right. I’ll gladly pay $17 for a two pound bag of great coffee. In order to get a price this good, I typically have to scour the supermarket’s shelves for sales. More often than not, the great $6-7 for 12oz. deal I find ends up producing lousy coffee…and costs about the same per pound as a bag of Tucan Espresso Sexy Seven.
If you enjoy bold, dark, low-acid coffee for a great price, get yourself some Tucan Espresso Sexy Seven.
