For an introduction to Regard Coffee (and their amazing cappuccinos) check out my post here. While I was visiting Regard, I picked up some beans to brew at home, and that’s what I’ll be discussing in this post. The beans I picked up were the Seven Falls variety, a medium/dark Brazilian coffee. My brewing method for this particular post was the aeropress. The beans themselves retailed for about $18 for a 340 gram bag. Alright, with the technical specifics out of the way, let’s dig into the coffee itself.
Right off the bat, I noticed that this coffee was incredibly smooth, especially being a medium/dark. I also noticed the creamy peanut butter notes as they were quite pronounced, especially near the beginning. If you like peanut butter, you’ll love this coffee! These notes mingled quite nicely with afternotes of a rich, yet sweet, chocolate. It kind of reminded me of an overstuffed peanut butter cup to be honest. It also had really nice staying power and an unexpectedly clean finish. While I just drank it black, I feel like this coffee would be well suited as a misto, or perhaps even as a latte to further bring out the rich creaminess in the chocolate and peanut butter. Overall, I was very happy with this coffee.
