Love the concept but we learned which espressos we like (Gold is the best!)
I have now tried 4 out of 5. None of them taste as in their descriptions. Mostly bland or bitter. Very little crema.

I have not tried all of the coffees yet but what I have tried has been ok. My problem is i like to grind my own beans and thought that was what had ordered. With you grinding the beans I don't know for sure how good the coffee is.
Since I seldom drink straight espresso, preferring lattes with a double dose of ground coffee, and a 1:2 or 1:2.5 pull and 4 oz of steamed mild, I didn't enjoy the bright, fruity flavor of the med and med dark roasts in this sampler. I still prefer the dark roast with a chocolate nutty flavor, on the smokey side.
