I’ve been making the Imola in my new espresso machine and it is fantastic. Tastes as good as the espresso I’ve had in Italy!
I enjoyed these beans, though they were pretty hard to get dialed in on my Rancilio Silvia. My machine seems to produce better results from a little bit darker roast.
Really great coffee, the smell is divine. My only thing is that I am used to drinking very strong, almost bitter espresso (think Cafe Bustello) so the more mild notes are a change for me. Super tasty crema and a rich color. Cute packaging too!
Great coffee from a great company! Works perfect as a pour over or French press.
This is simply the best espresso.
Smooth and nutty, a proper pull will yield delicious baked pretzel flavors which is further accentuated in lattes.
I’ve found my go to coffee and buy in bulk knowing it’s consistent. Drive has fine tuned this bean to it’s full potential, so turn up the boost and make some (espresso) pulls!
Great coffee with a great taste... be getting one of the other ones later..
Really enjoying my test drive, will be back for more. Nice flavor, not bitter but still reasonably bold.
I ordered some Imola and Le Mans whole bean coffee and I am now officially obsessed. I had previously just used ground coffee but got a grinder and started grinding the Drive coffee every morning and won’t be going back. I’m almost due for another batch and will be re-ordering soon. The single source Imola beans are amazing. They have a great taste and perfect amount of caffeine. The coffee is smooth with the perfect amount of acidity and aroma. They also shipped the coffee quickly and in really secure packaging with a handwritten thank you note. You won’t regret ordering from them!
