Decided to spoil myself a couple weeks ago and ordered three bags of Madcap — Luis Reinoso (Colombia), Three One Three (Ethiopia blend), and Party (I think used to be called Ardi - Ethiopian natural process).

Drank the Reinoso already, was my least favorite of the bunch. Finished up the bag of Three One Three this morning, really tasty. Party next. Been brewing them all in the Chemex, did a little testing with V60 but definitely prefer the cleaner cup of the former.

I feel like I can't afford to let this habit continue, but I kinda wanna!

Big fan of the Chemex,been making iced pour over all summer. Just curious,what was the roast level of the beans you just described? My favorite coffee roasters these days are No Name Java in Florida,and Old City Coffee Roasters in Philadelphia.

@Jett129 they're all medium roast! That seems to be the zone that Madcap stays in most of the time, if not always. Some of their coffees are really crazy — I think the Ardi (like I said, now called Party for some reason) was the first really nice, fruity medium roast I'd ever had, and it blew my mind. A real fruit bomb, as they say. Kinda changed my perspective on coffee forever, as previously I'd been more of a fan of dark roast. Now it just upsets my stomach, haha.

I’m still a dark roast fan,but rarely have French Press coffee anymore  as I feel that burned out my taste buds and stomach.

Ahh yeah, for sure. I feel like french press is def the best for dark roast, but you're right — it really packs a wallop with all those oils and stuff still in the coffee from the full immersion. Tasty but gnarly!

Went to Madcap’s website and looked at some of their coffees,but they don’t specify the roast level for any of their coffees.  I’ve been spoiled by Old City coffee as not only do they specify the roast level of every coffee,but they show you exactly how each bean looks. I’ve been disappointed from time to time by different roasters definition of what a “Dark” roast is. I found them to be fairly expensive relative to what I’m currently spending.I buy 5lbs at a time which usually kicks in some level of discount and free shipping. Their 5lb bags were a little bit cheaper. Are you in Michigan?
