I have been a fan of Javamania’s Italian roast since the days of Espresso Express many years ago. This was the best coffee shop in the area. Espresso Noir was suggested to me by the Javamania staff recently. It has a richer/creamy flavor as compared to the pleasantly bold Italian Roast. My preferred practice is one latte and one espresso a day. One day I use the Espresso Noir (finer grind) for a latte along with Italian Roast for an espresso later. The next day they are switched. Formula: Javamania roast+Baratza Sette+Gaggia Classic=Bliss.
Espresso Noir makes a very nice espresso with a chocolaty taste. Really good in a latte.
Great coffee, delicious aroma and taste. I will get more soon.
